Guacamole Potato Salad Recipe


As many of my recipes are, this one was created out of necessity.  Namely, the necessity to clean out my fridge.
 
I was swimming in supplies from Cinco de Mayo, but quite frankly, we were sick of Mexican food.  We had Mexican for dinner Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday night of that week...it was old.  Luckily, I was able to kind of give these ingredients new life in a fun take on potato salad!
 
 
This is a light salad that's really great for summer.  I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we did!
 
Guacamole Potato Salad
 
Ingredients
12-14 New Potatoes, boiled until fork tender and cooled
 2 avocados
1 pack guacamole mix
1/2c Fat Free Sour Cream
 1/4c Salsa
Salt/Pepper
2 tbsp Butter
1 handful Cilantro
4 oz cheese, shredded or thinly sliced
 
Directions
Take your potatoes and cut into 1 inch pieces.  Sometimes, I like to just smash them a little...it gives a better consistency, in my opinion.  It's up to you though!  Mix in butter until well distributed.
 
Puree avocados and add in guacamole mix. (Confession time - I just used Wholly Guacamole in the pack.  1 full pack equals about 2 avocados worth of guacamole.)
 
To guacamole, add in sour cream, salsa, and about half of the cilantro.  Mix with the buttered potatoes.  Salt and pepper to taste.
 
Garnish with cheese and remaining cilantro.
