★ Ingredients You'll Need ★
You'll need fresh avocados of course.
Then you'll fold in pico de gallo. This is a great little hack!
Pico de gallo is made up of fresh tomaotos, onion, cilantro, jalapeño and lime. Using pico de gallo is my secret trick to make this recipe super easy. You circumvent chopping onions, tomatoes, chilantro and peppers. It saves a ton of time!
If you want more punch, you can add extra lime juice — fresh squeezed is best — but you don't have to since lime is already and ingredient in pico de gallo.
Add Garlic salt and cumin to taste to season your guac just how you like it. If you like spice, you can add in cayenne pepper too.
Guacamole is also great over salad, on eggs, spread on toast or enjoy it with dinner on tacos.
★ Tips & FAQs ★
