Don’t get me wrong, workout ruts, relationship ruts, school ruts…those all suck and all. But there’s nothing quite like a guacamole rut. Why? Because unlike final exams, your flaky boyfriend or your lazy self failing to make it to the gym, guacamole is one thing you can always count on to be delicious, satisfying, and convince yourself eating it is the virtuous, healthy queen of the junk food universe. So when it’s the end of a long day, and you can’t get yourself excited about digging into a heaping bowl of green goodness, you know something’s wrong.
Alas, creative spins to the rescue! I promise these three fast fixes from Two Peas & Their Pod will send your blah-camole blues away.
First up, roasted corn and red pepper guacamole. No limes? Try adding the juice of a lemon instead. A splash of balsamic vinegar also complements the roasted corn in this 7-ingredient recipe nicely (well, nine total, but who doesn’t have salt and pepper excepts your lame-oh ex-roommate whose idea of cooking was re-microwaving last night’s Seamless order)..
