Limey Guacamole

If you like lime--you'll LOVE this guacamole!  Over the past 3 years I've been on the hunt for the best guacamole recipe; this one is a combination of several.  The real secret to this guac is the fresh style salsa.  With the fresh ingredients already chopped and the flavors already mingled, it's easy and unbelievably tasty!  

4 large, ripe hass avocados 
1 heaping cup of fresh salsa (with onions, and cilantro) 
   (I recommend Italian Rose from Sam's Club) 
1 tsp. minced bottled garlic
2 tsp. coarse kosher salt
1 T lime juice (I use bottled most of the time...but fresh is always best!)

1.  Peel and pit avocados, mash into a semi-chunky consistency 
2.  measure and add all other ingredients, stir until blended.  
3.  Serve with your favorite tortilla chips!

  3. i am glad that you posted this! i practically ate my weight in this at the party! thanks for sharing!

  4. This is how I make my guacamole too (I love the Italian Rose salsa), but I've never tried it with lime. I'll definitely have to make up a batch tomorrow.
