    I came across your DIY Guacamole Seasoning, but I can’t find your “GO-To Guacamole Recipe. Please share it with me. Thank you!

    • Hi Martha! The recipe is inside the DIY Guacamole Seasoning post. Here is the recipe for 2 avocado’s worth:

      2 ripe HAAS Avocado
      1-2 tsp of Mrs. Renfro’s Green Salsa (or your favorite jar of salsa verde!)
      1/4-1/3 cup chopped, ripe tomato (sometimes I add fresh minced jalapeño too)
      1/2 tsp of lime juice for a fruity burst of acidity
      fresh cilantro to taste

      You will also add the seasoning blend (I quadruple the recipe and just keep it in a jar for when I need it) and mix well.

      Combine all ingredients, minus the tomatoes. Mash to desired consistency, top with diced tomatoes and dig in! I like mine on the chunkier side — It sticks to the chips better.
