We’re throwing a party today, a chip & dip party!

Good Health shared some of their new Good Health Snacks with a few of us, so we’re pairing them with our favorite dips, so we’re going back 2 basics with this super easy and quick guacamole.

Pro Tip: Use a molcajete, because everything tastes better out of a molcajete.

PS. Peas should never be in or around guacamole. That’s just blasphemous.

Guacamole has always been a staple on our table growing up, it always made the most bland meals a little more exciting.

When times were rough, and all we had to eat were frijoles de la olla, my mom would always make sure to whip up a batch of guacamole, y salsita de molcajete.

Those were simpler times, and I miss coming home from school to the smell of a fresh pot of beans simmering on the stove, and the smell of onion and garlic lingering in the air.

I’m keeping it short today bc I’m still on vacation mode, so I’m slowly trying to get back into the swing of things, but I can’t wait to share some of the tasty recipes I have planned for you all!

Nos vemos el Jueves!

    Esteban! You are right…guacamole has the ability to make any day better! The ingredients are simple, but the flavor is so complex and satisfying. When my husband offers to make it for a snack, I’m all in. This looks great!

      Gracias Nicole! Sometimes, less really is more!

  • That’s right, Esteban. Guacamole y frijolitos de la olla are the best. We can never go wrong when there is guacamole en nuestra mesa. Thanks for inviting me to the chips and dip party.

      Gracias Taina! Thank you for being part of the chips and dip party!

  • I am a little jealous and wishing I grew up in your house. My mother was a terrible cook (she knows it) and 1980s style casseroles are still her bread and butter! Which is so funny since she grew up in Italy!! Ha! Anyhow, if you can just package up some of that guac and send it my way, that would be cool with me;)

    • Esteban Castillo

      There’s something kind of amazing about casseroles lol I’ll be sure to overnight some guac! <3

  • looks great
