Southwestern Guacamole is a twist on the classic guacamole by including southwestern corn.
My family loves eating guacamole. I usually make it with Mexican food. Guacamole also makes a great snack at parties and when watching the Superbowl. My family eats it by the spoonful so it doesn’t last long in our household. My toddler especially loves it so I add southwestern corn to get some extra vegetables in her plus it helps stretch it.
Making guacamole is really easy. First, I need ripe avocados which give slightly when pressed. I cut the avocados in half and use my handy Good Cook Avocado Slicer to take out the pit & scoop out the insides. I put the avocado insides into a bowl and use my citrus reamer to juice the lime on top. I add salt and use a fork to mash it all together.
Then I chop up the onions and tomatoes. I add them to the avocado mixture to make guacamole. To help stretch it, I add a can of southwestern corn which contains onions, black beans and red bell peppers.
Guacamole should be refrigerated and kept in an air tight container. The top of guacamole will turn darker if it is exposed to oxygen so its best to eat it within a day of making. My toddler loves my Southwestern Guacamole and couldn’t wait to start eating it. 🙂

this is such a yummy recipe, i am having company tonight so i think i am going to try this since i have most of the ingredients, i will have to steam up some red peppers but i think i am also going to add some yellow peppers for color 🙂 thanks for share @tisonlyme143
Yum, guacamole is one of my favourite foods too. Wonderful recipe. I learned how to make guacamole in Mexico. Even though my recipe is authentic, I still can’t duplicate the flavour of those fresh Mexican fruits/vegetables. I will have to give your recipe a try 🙂

My 4 year old loves guacamole and avocados in general (possibly because avocado was her first food?). This sounds like a great recipe, so I’m pinning it and also including it in a Cinco de Mayo roundup this Friday morning! Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes!
I’m actually having a party tomorrow and need to make guacamole. PERFECT TIMING! Thank you!
