I absolutely love guacamole, and this one is so easy that you can make it in 5 minutes. Yep – just 5 minutes to get a great, healthy snack!

I have a confession.  I may or may not have an obsession with different types of dips.  Like I really love dips (and chips, but those aren’t so WW friendly).

The best thing about Weight Watchers is that dips aren’t always that many points – it just depends what you pair them with.  

And I personally love dips that are easy and quick to make.  This recipe is so fast, you won’t even know what hit you when it’s ready.  Oh, and it’s only 4 ingredients.

The ingredients you will need for this guacamole recipe

Some tips for preparing for making this recipe:

  1. Use store bought pico de gallo to save you time. If you don’t want to buy store bought pico de gallo, you can buy 2 tomatoes, a small red onion and cilantro. Chop all the vegetables and use them in the recipe.
  2. The lemon juice stops the avocado from turning brown. Use this if your guacamole is going to be out for a while.
  3. To have a low-carb snack, you can use pepper slices. If you want to use chips instead, please feel free!
  4. You can also add additional tomatoes chopped on top, if you want more tomatoes.

So, what makes this guacamole so fast?  Buying prechopped pico de gallo.  Yep.  I don’t do this for large batches of guac for parties, but I do use this for small sides for myself.  

And why not?  It’s so easy to make and is a great, healthy snack.

I love to pair this guacamole with veggies – like broccoli or peppers.  The crunch from both of those veggies are wonderfully paired with this creamy guacamole.

  1. I totally agree. Making guacamole is pretty easy to do, but I do buy it sometimes.

  2. Guacamole really is a staple at a party ! It’s really easy to make, I don’t get why people choose shop bought guacamole or ready made packets… sometimes I only mash avocado up with cilantro and it does the job haha
