With wide-open spaces, glistening waters, and snow-covered peaks, the scenery during a camping trip can be breathtaking. Unfortunately, outdoor-adventure menus are not always as inspiring.
Preparing fresh camping snacks, like guacamole, can help bring variety and a taste of home to your trip’s menu. With a few simple tools — that you may already have in your pack — you and your camping crew will be coming back to the picnic table for s’more guac. Making guacamole while camping is easier than you’d think!
Wrap three nearly ripe Avocados From Mexico and one lime in a cloth and carefully load them into your pack. You will also need resealable plastic bags and a knife. The cloth will protect the fresh food from bruising if rough terrain jostles your pack during your campsite commute or pre-picnic hike.
When you are ready for a guacamole camping snack, remove the avocados and the lime. Slice the avocados lengthwise and remove each of the pits. Inside the avocado skin, dice the avocados into small squares, then scrape the pulp back into a resealable plastic bag. Us the flat edge of your knife to mash the avocado inside the bag.
Cut into your lime lengthwise and squeeze the juice over the mashed avocado. Enjoy your fresh guacamole camping snack as a spread on a prepacked sandwich or as a dip with crunchy baby carrots or apple slices.
Whether you’re an outdoor weekend warrior, a Cub Scout parent, or a road trip radical, making guacamole your new go-to camping snack is not as difficult as it seems. With a little planning and by closely following the three steps above, you can easily whip up this camping snack dip creation. Don’t forget the delicious and nutritious avocado.
