Things I Love Thursday: McCormick Guacamole Seasoning Mix

McCormick Guacamole Seasoning Mix.
I love guacamole! I am pretty sure I could eat it every day. By itself, on a burrito, on a turkey sandwich, on a baked potato… you get the idea.

However, I am the only family member in this household that likes it. And since fresh guacamole is only good for about a day… I never would have it unless I’m at a restaurant. And let’s face it… those times are rare.

Now, I have tried the packets of premade guacamole that you can buy. And while they worked for someone like me who wanted the dip available for taco night, but couldn’t justify making fresh… it’s an okay substitute. It’s okay to use ON something, but not just to scoop up with a tortilla chip.

However, recently, I was introduced to the McCormick Guacamole Season Mix. Oh boy. Mix one packet with two avacados and you have fresh, even delicious Guacamole instantly. But wait… since I’m the only one eating it, I started halving the mix. Each packet has a little over 2 tablespoons mix. So I can use only 1 avacado, 1 T of mix and have a perfect little dip for me that will last about 2 days… if I ration it and not eat it all in one setting. (the dip will turn a little dark on day 2, but still edible.)

At $.85 per packet (or less on sale with coupons. Meijer recently paid me $.40 per pkt to take them off their hands, but that’s for another post sometime.), or for me $.43 per dip (plus the cost of the avocado)…. is way worth it to make it this way.

Now, I’ve heard that avocados are full of the “healthy” fat. Do you think I can get them to apply that label to all the tortilla chips that I eating, too? Can they at least cancel each other out?

    It really is the best mix out there. My whole family loves guacamole, even my 1 year old. I make it by the dozen for parties. If your making a bigger batch if you use a few packets of the regular and then one packet of the spicy it's really good. I'm just sad because it's becoming hard to find around here. Which is dumb because I live in the state where McCormick is located!
