The Stolen Guac


Listen up. This is the only time I will EVER PROMOTE CHEATING.

And I’ve been having a hard time doing so. I’ve literally been trying to write this post for awhile. By awhile I mean….a year or so.

However, there is a certain guilt associated with putting a recipe on the internet when it is supposedly a secret. One of my best friends stole this recipe from her roommate a few years ago. I say she stole it because said roommate refused to give it up, so my intelligent friend closely watched her make it. And took notes.

This is probably the best guacamole I’ve ever had, and the secret lies in the little yellow seasoning packets. If you’re against sodium or MSG, etc, etc…you should probably just stop reading here.

Everyone I know raves about it, and this guac is the only thing my friend is allowed to bring to parties. If she brings something else….well, she wouldn’t do that. She knows how much we like it.

The Best Ever Guacamole Maybe Because It’s Stolen but I Don’t Care or Because It’s Cheating but Again, I Don’t Care

3-4 Ripe avocados
About half of a yellow onion, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
Juice from 1 lime (more or less to taste)
1-2 packets of Goya Salad and Vegetable seasoning, pictured above.
Salt, cumin and garlic powder to taste

Mash avocados in a medium-size bowl. Add onion, lime juice, seasonings and stir well. Taste.  Add more seasonings to your liking. Chill for about 10 minutes, then fold in tomatoes before serving.

Thank me because this is the best thing you’ve ever eaten.

    This is kind of amazing. I’m not sure if I’m outraged or enthused. I HAVE to try it though.

    You should be both, as I was when I discovered the secret ingredients.

    I make guacamole, but I have never tried that seasoning. I am going to look for it in my grocery store.
