Putting aside that no one makes guacamole in a blender (or no one should) this video from Nutrisystem is on point with a guacamole recipe that can go anywhere and won’t brown if you squish it down and seal the bag tightly. Cut off the corner and pipe — I mean squeeze — it into a bowl when you’re ready to eat.
Guacamole isn’t difficult to make. It’s not even difficult to make well, frankly. But this recipe does make cleanup a breeze, and makes your favourite dip or snack incredibly portable. Just toss your avocado, diced tomato and onion (or salsa if you’re lazy) and lime juice into a zip-lock bag. Personally, I’d toss in some fresh garlic, maybe even garlic powder, salt and pepper (because how it’s missing from this recipe I have no idea) and maybe some diced jalapeno if you like it spicy. If you add a dash of lemon or lime and squeeze all the air out of the bag before you seal it, it will even keep it from browning while you keep it in your lunch bag, head to an office pot luck or take it to a friends’ for game night.
Then, when you’re ready, just mash everything up in the bag (or get the kids to do it — it’s safe for them at this point) and then cut the corner off the bag and squeeze the whole mess into a serving bowl. Toss the bag, and you’re all done. Oh, and even if you decide this isn’t the recipe for you, don’t use a blender to make guacamole. That’s awful.
