I don’t know about you, but I love guacamole! I didn’t grow up eating avocados, but am a total fan now. And guacamole was one of the first ways that I began to acquire a taste for them. I started making this for my family before I was married, and it was a huge hit! And I’m sure it will be with yours too. 😉
This has been my go-to guacamole recipe for years. And it delivers every time. It’s smooth, creamy and everything a good guac should be. You can also whip this up in no time because it’s super easy to make and only has four, simple ingredients:
Two pointers here:
1) Use avocados that are good and ripe. If you have some neglected avocados lying around, this is a great time to use them!
2) Add plenty of lemon juice (at least if you like lemon like I do =). Avocados are very rich, so I like to hit my guac with lots of citrus to brighten up the taste and give it some tang.
And there you have it. Use it as a dip with tortilla chips/veggies for snacking, a spread for on a sandwich, or as a beautiful topping for burritos, enchiladas, tacos, and all your Mexican-themed meals. Either way you have it, it’s sure to not disappoint.
2 ripe avocados
3 tablespoons onion, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Cut the avocados in half and scoop out the flesh. Put them in the same bowl you plan to serve them in and mash with a fork until desired smoothness is achieved. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Enjoy!
