On the Go Guacamole for a Back to School #SundaySupper

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in Family Life, Recipe, SundaySupper | 13 comments

Two weeks… that is all we really have left of Summer Vacation. Two short little weeks. . . I can hear the panic in my kids voices as they count down the days. My boys are a mix of excitement. No one likes the early mornings or the homework, but they like most of their classes, love playing sports and generally all the social aspects of school.  Our Cat is probably the most excited though, she likes all the bags. Cat in a Bag

This school year means a lot of changes to our household. One boy is driving, one boy is moving on to the Junior High…like I said, lots of changes. One constant in my life is that I am short on time, but still want to give my boys healthy options for lunch.  That is where this On The Go Guacamole was born. Avocados are loaded with good stuff for you and let’s face it…they are awesome with anything.

On The Go Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cumin (Powder)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cracked White Pepper (you can use black pepper if you do not have white pepper)
  • 1 Ziplock Type Sandwich Bag

Directions

Step 1
Combine your spices into the bag.
Step 2
Avocado in Bag
Score the avocado to make for easy opening...add to the bag with the spices.
Step 3
twist to open
Once you are ready to eat, open the avocado by twisting it. It should twist right open. Remove the pit. Add the avocado back into the bag with the spices.
Step 4

Zip it all shut, expelling the extra air inside the bag.
Step 5
Squish it all together to get the consistency that you like. Use those fingers. This is the fun part.
Step 6

Eat with chips, crackers or maybe add to a sandwich

I even make this at work. I like to add it to salad in place of dressing or dip pita chips in it. Shoot, toss in some chicken and you have avocado chicken salad. The possibilities are endless.  It is a perfect addition to any brown paper bag lunch. Simple, easy to make, clean up is a dream, and it just plain ol’ tastes good.

    What an awesome idea! I’ve brought guac to work before, but it’s always that nasty brown by the time lunch comes around.
