Default Anyone ever made guacamole using Ro-Tel?

My friend brought me some fresh avocados from her neighbor's tree, so I thought I'd whip up a batch of fresh guacamole for tailgating tomorrow.

I have a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes/green chiles in the pantry, so I was wondering if that, along with the avocado, lime juice, red onion, and some cilantro would make a decent guacamole.

Any of you folks ever tried that?

I don't see why not, Ro-tel is just diced tomatos and green chili (and if I recall, a ton of salt, not sure though). As long as you like tomatoes in your quacamole, go for it.
Out of curiosity, I searched through a few guacamole recipes on the Food Network site, and Alton Brown's recipe was the only one of the few I looked at that had diced tomatoes, so you might want to use that as your guide.

It works, but as mentioned you've got to drain them well.

Why did you ignore the search results for Sandra Lee, the only real chef on the Food Network?


Just sayin...

You ever notice that even if she's making breakfast, she always includes a cocktail? I think she's a lush.

So where is this tailgate that we should stop by at? I would love some fresh guac. I have been looking for ro-tel tomatoes but can't find them in my local store.

There are usually generic ones available- look for diced tomatoes with green chilis.

I'd be more than glad to 'lush' right along with with her for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and snack time!

Back on topic......I like Rotel. Gives a good kick to soups, stews, etc. Don't see why it wouldn't work in guac. I'm curious how it turns out!

My wife makes guac. often. Some times she adds diced fresh tomato, and grates a little onion on a micro plane to mix in...As long as the avacado ratio is more than tomato it should be good! Add the rest of the maders to the salsa! You are going to serve salsa with the chips too, aren't you?? I had a neighbor that a problem eating anything green with the word mole in it!
