Our Family Feast with Holy Moly Guacamole & Sainsbury’s

Now Christmas is over, I’m desperately trying to get my family back into some kind of routine. My two-year-old little girl, Penelope, is slowly becoming more and picky when it comes to dinnertime, however, one meal she never fails to enjoy is our Friday night fajitas. She loves putting everything together, getting messy and being in control of what goes on her plate. It’s scary how independent and confident she is becoming. When it’s just me and the girls, I’m often running around the house in a tizzy; running baths, making food, tidying up, putting a wash on etc. I often forget how much she likes to help and how capable she is already, especially when it comes to looking after her baby sister. Don’t worry, I’m not saying I get her to scrub the floor or clean the windows, but if I need her to help me rub cream on Poppy’s tummy or pass me a nappy her face lights up. She loves being my ‘big girl princess’. Another thing she loves to do is help me when we do our weekly shop. As well as two delicious tubs of Holy Moly Guacamole (Best. Name. Ever.) I was very kindly sent a voucher from Sainsbury’s to create our Mexican feast so off we went…

I had made a list of things we needed to go which Penny proudly carried around the shop the entire time. I love taking Penny shopping when we actually have time to look about and aren’t in a rush. The only problem is that she wants to carry all the things instead of putting them in the basket, which can often lead to a temper tantrum in aisle number four. I was pretty impressed with how well she could identify all the ingredients I picked up though. We bought the Sainsbury’s Fajita Kit in Smoky BBQ, onions, peppers, sour cream, chicken and cheese, which came to just over £8 which is brilliant for a massive feast for the three of us – there were even some leftovers!

I have to admit, we’ve both picked up some pretty bad eating habits over the last month so I couldn’t be happier to get something natural, yummy and easy to prepare in our system. You can only live off Lindt truffles and chocolate reindeers for so long… unfortunately. Holy Moly Dips work hand in hand with Mexican farmers to source the very best ingredients. Their sun-ripened avocados are handpicked and hand scooped in the heart of rural Mexico. They are then combined with chunky fresh tomato, finely chopped red onion, a touch jalapeno chilli, a squeeze of lime juice, a pinch of salt, peppering of coriander, and a tiny bit of garlic. They’re the first guacamole dips to be registered with the Vegan Society – most supermarket own-label guacamoles contain dairy to bulk out the product.

There is no dairy, gluten or preservatives in either the Original and Spicy Guacamole. They looked and tasted almost as if they were homemade and added a fresher, lighter dimension to our fajitas. They are both surprisingly creamy and packed with flavour. I’ve not quite achieved domestic goddess status quite yet and fajitas sounded like an obvious and simple way to incorporate guacamole into our meals but Holy Moly has a few serving suggestions of their own which I can’t wait to try out, such as spreading it all over sourdough toast with parma ham. If you’re looking for a change from traditional preservative-laden and artificial-tasting shop bought guacamole I highly recommend Holy Moly Guacamole.

The Holy Moly Guacamole range is available at Sainsbury’s with an RRP of £2.75 per 150g tub.
