Salsa takes the work out of dicing tomatoes, while bottled jalapeño peppers replace fresh chili peppers in this simple guacamole recipe. If you wish, you can increase the heat by mixing in 1 teaspoon of chili powder.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 3 avocados
- ⅔ cup salsa
- 1 tablespoon bottled chopped jalapeño peppers
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 (6-ounce) bag tortilla chips
Peel the avocados.
With a knife, cut the avocados in half and remove the round pit in the middle. Place the pitted avocados in a medium bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher.
In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients except for the chips.
Add the mashed avocado, stirring to mix it in. If the guacamole is too chunky, mash a bit more.
Serve the guacamole with tortilla chips.
