Olive Us: I’m Hungry – Guacamole

November 5, 2013

Are you hungry? Well, you’re in luck. I’ve got the easiest guacamole recipe in world for you — so simple, your kids can really make it themselves. And it’s delicious, too! In fact, it’s the way I personally prefer guacamole. As basic as it gets. Just 3 ingredients. Take a look at the latest Olive Us Episode, fittingly titled Guacamole, to see how it’s done.

This episode was fun to make. You can never go wrong with faces on inanimate objects! : ) The illustrations and title were created by the talented Clayton Thompson. It was fun to outfit, too. Oscar and Olive are both wearing items from a French store called Generation Z. The dress Betty is wearing was a gift from Well Dressed Wolf. Isn’t it perfect?

Now I’d love to know: What do you like to add to your guacamole? Lemon? Cilantro? Onions? Tomato? Or do you skip the guacamole and concentrate your efforts on the salsa?

That was really stinking cute. And that first picture of Betty is striking! She is going to be a looker. You watch out for that one, Gabs.

So cute and totally making me hungry! We usually buy chunky salsa and mix that in with the avocado as a cheat. And maybe add some lime juice too. I’ll have to try it your way soon.

This looks delicious (and adorable, of course). Undersalted (or completely unsalted, ugh) guacamole is always such a disappointment.

Believe it or not, we add a little sour cream and lemon juice. My mother in law made it this way for us once and there was no turning back.

Adorable video (although, not a fan of the avocado). I’m a salsa girl all the way!

So fun! We do 2 ingredients- avacadoes and salsa. My husband doesn’t love avocados, but loves our guacamole!

Yum! I’m ashamed to admit I was in my 30′s before I made guac at home, haha. I prefer avocados, cilantro (I know how you feel about that), and lemon (and salt of course). In a pinch though, i’ll just do avocados and salt. :P AND it HAS to be chunky!
