Cheater Guacamole

As some may know I am loosely Paleo, some times much more strict than others.  Right now I am doing a Whole30 challenge so it's super strict.  Whether or not I am eating well (Paleo) or not (Standard American Diet or SAD) my breakfast doesn't change very much.  It's mostly two eggs sometimes with avocado and/or salsa, and fruit.  I am a HUGE avocado lover and while preparing my traditional breakfast I came up with cheater guacamole.  Now, disclaimer, Trader Joe's Avocado's Number Guac is  better but this is a quick, single serving portion.  And now without further ado:

Gather your ingredients:  Half of an avocado, pit removed, duh, and salsa of choice.  I love Herdez salsa!  It's a simple salsa with real ingredients, has no sugar AND is less expensive than other similar salsas that are in all English.  You can use mild, medium or hot, I have mild because G1 isn't into spicy salsa so he can have it mild and if I want it hotter I just add some Frank's Red Hot Sauce.

Keep your avocado in its skin and, using a butter knife, start mashing.  Keep mashing until you get avocado paste consistency.

 You can now scoop the avocado out of the skin and into a bowl and add some salsa.  How much you add depends on how you like your avocado to tomato/onion/cilantro ratio.  Also, use a fork so you get more salsa and not as much juice.  Then stir it up.  You can add salt and pepper to taste.

Now you can add it to your dish, like eggs!

Now you can have guacamole every day without it going all brown on you!
