Guacamole Spice Mix

I looked up ‘guacamole’ on Wikipedia. Why? I wanted to see if just adding a spice mix to smashed avocados actually qualifies as ‘guacamole’. And yes, it does. This guacamole spice mix is a great substitute for fresh-made guacamole.

Guacamole Spice MixThe great thing about this mix is that it uses items right out of my pantry. Ready to make at any time. Easy and fast, and great on a hot dog (I love the contrast of the cool guacamole and a warm dog!) or as a dip for warmed tortilla chips. And it has some kick to it (it has to if I’m going to eat it). If you love guacamole, you’ll love this spice mix. If you happen across some Hatch chiles, make my spicy green chile guacamole!

Also try my dry onion soup mix.

  1. Well, mine is probably a lot better than this one. I use (seasoning wise) sauteed diced onions and garlic, S&P, chopped fresh cilantro, cumin and a little dash of siracha. I use a T. of lemon juice and just a few drops of lime juice. I taste after each spice addition so I’ll know how to proceed. Lime juice is just too tart. It’s good for a little zip, but lemon juice is far better. It has just the right about of citrus flavoring and it doesn’t over power all the other ingredients. I don’t put tomatoes in because they don’t hold up very well. Here’s a tip: after you finish making the dip, put the advocado seed in the middle of the tip and it will make the guacamole stay that pretty green color.
