KID-FRIENDLY ZESTY GUACAMOLE

Guacamole is friendly in general, but this recipe is all that and a bag of chips!!! Kid-approved and keeps the little ones busy, while you make the hard stuff, aka margaritas. Keeping the kiddos happy is the ultimate hosting tip! 

SALT TIP:  Use blood oranges if they are in season (winter to early spring, December through May in the USA). The aroma is more intense than a normal orange, with a hint of raspberry, and a tart finish that better mimics the classic lime recipe.  

This recipe serves 4 little ones. 

Ingredients:

  • 6 avocados cut in half (pit in) 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium blood orange (any orange will do)
  • 3 tablespoons of pomegranate seeds
  • 2 x handfuls of Siete Sal y Limon (salt and lime) tortillas chip. We also love Ranch or Fuego flavored chips. 

Instructions: 

  1. Each kid will need a bowl, fork, spoon, and their own ziplock bag. 
  2. Before their hands are dirty. Have each kid grab a handful of tortillas chips and place them in their ziplock bag. To make the chip sprinkles, they can use a wooden mallet or simply crush by hand and set aside.  
  3. Divide the cut avocados between the kids so they have equal halves to work with. Keep the skin on and pit in! Skin on allows for a better grip and pit-in will be a fun challenge to get out with their (washed) hands. 
  4. Once they have the avocado in the bowl, scooping out any excess with their spoons, they can begin mashing with their forks. 
  5. Squeeze in 1/2 an orange, mix until the liquid is no longer visible.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste
  7. Garnish with pomegranate seeds for an extra juicy crunch. 
  8. Top with chip sprinkles!
