Pico de Gallo Makes Super-Quick Guacamole

I recently posted my Pico de Gallo recipe and promised it can be used in many other dishes.  Here’s a super-quick one that I make all the time, usually the day after I first make the Pico (if there is any left over).

Just a few ingredients turn Pico de Gallo into a simple guacamole.

Ingredients
1/2 to 1 cup of leftover or freshly made Pico de Gallo (click here for the recipe)
Juice of 1/2 lime
I fresh avocado, chopped (click here for instructions on how to chop an avocado)
Salt to taste

Cooking Instructions

Combine all ingredients, adding more salt if necessary.  The result is a chunky, delicious condiment as shown in the photo below.


I used this recipe recently while at our cabin in the mountains of Colorado to create a quick guacamole for my pulled pork tacos.  (I’m still working on perfecting the pulled pork recipe, which is made in the crock pot and is a real time-saver.)  It was great to be able to quickly throw together the guacamole so I could have more time to savor my al fresco dinner watching the sun set over the mountains.

Quick guacamole is the perfect compliment for pulled pork tacos, and is especially tasty on a chilly spring evening in Colorado.
