    Meanwhile, mash together avocados with Old El Paso™ Taco Seasoning. Feel free to use the mild or spicier version of the seasoning and adjust it to your liking. Start with one tablespoon and add more if you like.

More About This Recipe
  • If there’s one appetizer that you can always count on as a pleaser, it’s guacamole. Who doesn’t love scooping up that spicy, creamy mixture?! If there’s a second-place appetizer, in my opinion, it’s bruschetta. Infinitely variable to your liking, toasted bread is about as easy and simple as appetizers get. So, it just makes sense to mash these things together. Instead of making a full-fledged guacamole, I like to keep the mashed avocado layer on these simple and top them with a unique tomato salad. This little tomato salad has traditional Italian flavors going on, but it pairs really nicely with the avocado. Pile these things onto your toasted bread and you’re ready to go! You could even just serve the toppings in big bowls and let people make their own. Bruschetta makes any party bettah!
