Name something more frustrating than reaching for an avocado only to find it's far from ripe. Yeah, not great! As big fans of the fruit over here at mbg (no joke—at the time of this writing, a staffer instant-messaged our office asking if anyone wanted the other half of hers), we know that situation well.
And so does Antoni Porowski, the foodie/actor/soon-to-be cookbook author, best known for his role as the food and wine expert on Netflix's Queer Eye series. So in honor of National Guacamole Day this Sunday, September 16, Porowski teamed up with WHOLLY GUACAMOLE®, the brand behind the real-deal refrigerated guacamole, to give away free guacamole over at eatwholly.com (more details below) and share some of his favorite ways to whip up a quick and delish avocado dish—without worrying about the ripeness factor (or any prep and mashing either, for that matter). Here's our favorite one.
"This quick little recipe is an awesome hors-d'oeuvre or appetizer that you can make for guests, or just for yourself," says Porowski. "I love appetizers that are simple, easy to make, but are delicious and flavor-packed, and this is one of them."
As for WHOLLY GUACAMOLE®'s ready-to-go guac made with real ingredients and no added preservatives, "These Hass avocados are packed at their peak ripeness, so they're soft but they still have that perfect bite," says Porowski, "and then they're sealed right away so it maintains that beautiful, bright-green color that guac is known for. You'll thank me." See how to get your free guac after the recipe!
