SANDPOINT, IDAHO (May 18, 2016) – Consumers love the fresh taste and rich flavors of homemade guacamole, but not the prep time involved. Now, thanks to a category-leading innovation, Litehouse® Guacamole Herb Blend combines dried and freeze-dried herbs and spices to create a simple ingredient panel of: cilantro, red onion, tomato, lemon, cumin, red pepper and garlic to make homemade guacamole simple and tasty.
No more slicing and dicing herbs and creating food waste with left over ingredients. Now, to make guacamole with exceptional flavor, consumers just mix the guacamole herb blend with avocado, salt and freshly squeezed lime juice. Each jar makes four batches of guacamole and contains no additives or preservatives, and is non-GMO and gluten-free.
“The secret to making perfect guacamole is perfecting the blend of spices,” said Theresa Lindholm, Brand Manager, Litehouse. “We’re excited to introduce a new and simple way to make homemade guacamole that will have family and guests begging for your secret recipe.”
