Who doesn’t love guacamole? And all you people out there that are shaking their head, “no I hate guacamole, that delicious healthy fat combined with all those savory veggies and awesome spices, I hate it.” Obviously something’s wrong with you. The great thing about making your own dip is that you can take out any flavors you don’t like!
With this batch, I decided to try to add some protein. I put in some black beans and they are so tasty. Definitely be doing that again.
Guac is great to bring to parties with some crackers/chips or to put on top of salads. And it makes taco night SO much better. Plus, it’s so easy! This took me about 20 minutes to make and it will (hopefully with some restraint from Mike) last at least 3 or 4 days.
Easy Black Bean Guacamole
3 ripe avocados
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, pressed
6 oz salsa or 1 medium tomato, diced
juice from 1/2 lime, 1/2 lemon, OR 1 orange (I didn’t have anything else and it actually worked really well)
1 tsp cumin, to taste
2 tsp sea salt, to taste
1 tsp ground pepper, to taste
dash of chili powder
6 oz black beans
1. Our avocados were unripe yesterday so I took them out of the fridge and wrapped them in a brown paper bag. For some reason they ripen faster in paper bags. This morning they were perfect.
2. Cut avocados in half, take out the pit, and scoop into a large bowl. Add all other ingredients besides black beans. Mash it all up with a fork or masher.
3. Stir in beans or other add-ins. Taste test it! Mess with the spices however you see fit. It looks kinda gross but it is OH SO GOOD!
What is your favorite way to eat guacamole?
