I feel like I have been holding out on you. I’ve recently made a bunch of different dips for different recipes and occasions, but I haven’t shared any of them! So, I think we are going to have a dip-a-palooza this weekend! Let’s break out the chips and make some dip!
This original 5 Minute Guacamole recipe is actually my husband’s recipe. This recipe was created last year when I was pregnant with my youngest son. I suddenly had a pregnancy craving for guacamole one evening, so he started scanning the internet for a quick recipe. He found that most recipes called for diced tomatoes, diced, onions, cumin, and garlic, in addition to the avocados. The problem was: we didn’t have tomatoes or onions!
But this didn’t stop my dear, sweet husband. He put two and two together and realized that salsa has tomatoes and onions (plus a little extra kick!) And so he created the following recipe to appease his hungry, pregnant wife. We continue to enjoy this guacamole frequently (no pregnancy cravings needed!)

Scoop avocado out of the skins and onto a plate. Mash up with a fork (it is ok, if there are still some chunks). Stir in the salsa, garlic powder, cumin and salt, mix well. Enjoy immediately or cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
