So since I finally found a local source for my Wholly Guacamole addiction, I’ve been going a little crazy with the guac. I spread it on my sandwiches, I mix it into rice, I dip chicken in it, I mix it into my tuna salad, and yes, I even eat it with chips.
I had read a suggestion to try using guacamole as a “healthier” substitute for mayo, and I’ve been totally loving using it as a sandwich spread.

Today I went to make tuna salad for my daughter’s lunch, and realized that we’re out of mayo. I had some Wholly Guacamole in the fridge so I figured why not give it a try.

It was more than just a passable substitute, it was fantastic. And I got to thinking. “Hm. This sort of reminds me of my mother-in-law’s awesome tuna dip.” So I add a bit more guac, mixed it up, and broke out the chips. But not just any old chips….

The May Two-Four long weekend is coming up and to help celebrate Beanitos and Wholly are teaming up to help bring some fantastic snacking to Canada. When they offered to send me a bunch of Wholly Guacamole goodies and a case of Beanitos, I obviously couldn’t say no.
But you know I was just in it for the guac, right? So I was pleasantly surprised to find that Beanitos aren’t just good, they are absolutely AWESOME. They taste fantastic, and they are actually good for you. They are a healthy snacking choice, so much better for you then corn chips.

I found Beanitos to be a tasty and filling snack. I love that a “serving” is actually the entire single portion bag, and not just six chips. I tried out all four flavours (Black Bean, Pinto Bean & Flax, Black Bean Chipolte BBQ, and Pinto Bean & Flax with Cheddar Cheese), and while I liked the “plain” chips better than the flavoured ones all four varieties were delicious. The two flavoured varieties (Black Bean Chipolte BBQ, and Pinto Bean & Flax with Cheddar Cheese) are a bit spicy. My kids devoured all four types with alarming speed.
They are a big hit here, both plain and along side Wholly Guacamole. Personally I love the contrast of Wholly’s Spicy Guac with the plain chips, and of the plain milder guac with the spicy flavoured chips.

Perfect snack food for the upcoming backyard BBQ season, right? And if you’re feeling adventurous you can try adding tuna to your guac to make a crazy delicious dip to serve to your guests. ( Okay, so you guys probably think I’m nuts for mixing tuna into perfectly good guacamole, but it was seriously tasty.)
