This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Albertsons on Broadway. The opinions and text are all mine.
So the Albertson’s on Broadway here in Boise has a super fun little event going on for Hatch Chiles through the 14th. I totally recommend you go – they’re roasting them in store from 3-6PM and have a fun display and well, that store is just gorgeous and fun to be at either way, so yeah. They also have tons of samples and things to try that are made using Hatch Chiles (like their delicious cornbread). Basically it’s just a party all the time at this store, no joke – every time I’ve gone there since they opened it’s been something super fun. They’re really great at engaging with customers and I love that! It’s rare to find places that do that these days, so I treasure it when I find it!
Anyways, I picked up some of the Hatch Chiles (medium because we are a little wimpy over here) and got to work on tweaking my already, not to toot my own horn or anything, really good guacamole recipe using them! If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s my serious love for guac and chips – no joke, I make it 2-3 times a week just for myself and Blake to snack on. Moakes isn’t much of a guac person but guys guess what, this recipe that I’m about to share, he was eating non stop! SOOOO I call that a huge freaking win people. So let’s just dive in.
*This recipe makes guacamole for about 5-6 people 🙂
- 2 Medium Hatch Chiles (you can go hotter if you want)
- 6-7 Avocados (depending on size)
- Bunch of Green Onions
- Handful of grape tomatoes
- Bunch of Cilantro
- 1 Lemon
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Salt to taste
- Honestly, it’s super easy to make – start with the avocados, slice down the center, twist open and scoop out with a spoon! Once you’ve done this to all of them, smash them up in the bowl. I like to leave mine a little chunkier. **Tip – a potato masher works really great to smash avocados for guac!
- After you’ve got the avocados all smashed up, you’ll start adding the ingredients – I typically chop the green onions, cilantro, tomatoes and then Hatch peppers – in that order and throw in on top of the avocados – but don’t mix until everything is in! ** Tip to chopping chiles – slice down into long triangular sections, then chop!
- After all the ingredients are chopped and thrown in the bowl, you’ll mix carefully not to small things too much, unless you like that – me on the other hand, I like chunky guac so I try and keep things chunky while mixing!
- Once mixed, squeeze half a lemon into it, add garlic, onion powder and salt to taste! Those last things are totally to your taste, so have chips ready to try until you get it perfect!
- Serve with chips!!
