Simple Taco Tuesday Bowl with Best Ever Guacamole

Easy, Delicious and Satisfying!

Dinner on the fly tonight was a a big salad with chips and two dips.

Happy Taco Tuesday friends! Dinner was quick and easy beef tacos for the boys, a big bowl of guacamole (with a game changing secret ingredient ) and this simple but delicious salad bowl for me.

The details…  fresh greens, black beans, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, a big scoop of guacamole, Siete nacho chips and Siete cashew queso, mild nacho flavor. Such a simple bowl and it was perfect.

More on the guacamole…  I used to struggle with the right balance of lime or lemon, tomatoes, onions, cilantro and the like, until a friend introduced us to her recipe… the Guacamole rocked our world and we never looked back! The secret to this recipe? BANANA PEPPERS?! (aka Pepperoncini) It’s a game changer. It takes away the need for so many spices, limes, lemons or onions, and adds The. Best. Flavor!  Bonus: The juice from the banana peppers has some distilled vinegar and helps the guacamole from changing color and browning.

So add a little zing to your guacamole and try this 4 ingredient guacamole.  All you need is avocado, tomato, cilantro and BANANA PEPPERS! And it’s SO yummy!  A total crowd pleaser!

Best Ever Guacamole
This is not your average guacamole! Recipe from a friend, it has a secret ingredient that will rock your world.. Banana Peppers! The banana peppers replace lemons, limes, onions and a whole host of other ingredients providing great flavor and helping the guacamole keep from browning. Seriously, this guacamole holds its color better than any other we've tried.

  1. With a fork gently mash 2 avocados
  2. Mix in the peppers.
  3. Then gently fold in the tomatoes and cilantro
  4. Add in the third avocado and gently mash with a fork (I like to do the third avocado last so that there are some chunky avocado pieces but mix to your liking)

  1. Holy guacamole! I just tried this guacamole recipe and it is top notch. I’ll admit, I was skeptical at first because I couldn’t understand how these flavors would come together, but they did and they do! I made it for a veggie snack plate and it was a nice switch from the usually guac recipe. I’ll definitely be making this again!
