This recipe is super easy because the herbs and spices are already in the can of Ro-tel. I always stock up on Ro-tel when I see coupons for it (print this $1/3 coupon here) and then all I need for guacamole are the avocados since everything else is already on-hand.
Kim’s Variation of Ro-tel Guacamole
3 ripe avocados, peeled and mashed
1 can Ro-tel with lime juice and cilantro, drained
1-2 tsp. Tabasco, depending on taste (optional)
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate and serve chilled. You can adjust any of the ingredients according to your own taste. I love cilantro, so I usually end up adding extra cilantro leaves from my herb garden during the summer. If you only have two avocados, use half the can of Ro-tel and adjust spices accordingly. Freeze the half can of Ro-tel to use in your next batch of guacamole.
