Great Green Guacamole

When shopping for avocados, make sure the spot under the stem is green, not brown. A ripe avocado has purple-black skin.

What You’ll Need
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup prepared salsa
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh vegetables or tortilla chips
What to Do
  1. Before You Begin: Wash your hands.
    Adult: Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
  2. Use a spoon to scoop the avocado from the skin. Put the avocado on a cutting board.


  3. Cut the avocado into small pieces using a child-safe knife or butter knife. Put the pieces into a bowl.


  4. Mash the avocado with a fork or potato masher until slightly chunky.


  5. Add salsa, lime juice, garlic, salt, and pepper to the avocado. Mash gently.
  6. Place the guacamole in a serving bowl. Arrange with cut vegetables or tortilla chips.
