3 Minute Easy Guacamole

Want to make guacamole in a pinch? Try this 3 minute easy guacamole. It’s SO easy, SO fast, and your friends won’t even know it only took you 3 minutes to make!

This is a recipe I’ve been making for years, but never thought it was blog worthy with all the shortcuts taken. Until recently, that is. I’m learning every day to value the easiest of recipes. Being a busy mom of two boys two and under keeps me VERY busy. My friends and family always request my guacamole whenever we get together. So I feel it’s time to share the secret with the world.

Yes, this is the easiest EASY guacamole you will ever make.

…and yes, I feel that strongly about it. πŸ™‚

So the shortcut? No chopping of tomatoes, jalapeno, or much of anything really! My cheat for you is EXTRA CHUNKY SALSA. Sounds so simple right?

I use medium heat level but you can definitely sub for mild or hot, depending on the level of spice you prefer in your guacamole. I often double or even triple this recipe to feed a crowd, but that won’t double or triple the time needed to make this. This is seriously the simplest, most DELICIOUS and satisfying appetizer ever. I realize that’s a bold statement, but I personally guarantee that all your friends and family will enjoy this.

PRO TIP: Use a potato masher to quickly smash your avocados into a chunky but still dippable texture. Do not overly mash the avocados. You want this dip chunky, not pureed.

I love using this guac for topping Cauliflower Tacos or Zucchini Burrito Boats. It also makes a great burger topping, I especially like it on theseΒ Vegan Chicken Burgers. Or you serve it with your favourite veggies, chips, crackers, or just grab a spoon and chow down. It’s that good!

    Salsa!! That’s genius :). I can SO relate to being a mom with young kids and looking for shortcuts wherever I can get them. I have to try this!

    Now I’m thinking how come I never add garlic to my guac, your version sounds amazing! I’ll try it and will add garlic next time.
