Can you believe I used to not like guacamole? What was I thinking? Maybe it was the green color. Or that I hated tomatoes and onions. Man I was a weird child. It’s okay though, because now I looovvveee guacamole. And avocados. I could probably just eat an avocado as a snack, all by itself.
Over Memorial Day weekend, my sisters, cousins and I made some guacamole. It was gone so fast I had to make more when I got back to Madison. This recipe is so easy and so good I have a feeling I will be making it many many more times this summer.
If you have a few bruises on your avocado like I do you can easily cut those out. The avocado is still good as long as it’s not really brown and mushy or smell funny.
- 3 ripe avocados
- 2 Roma tomatoes (diced)
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 lime (juiced)
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Peel and pit the avocados.
- With a fork or potato masher, mash the avocados until there are a minimal amount of clumps.
- Dice the tomato and medium onion. When dicing the tomato, make sure you take the seeds out otherwise it makes the guacamole a little watery.
- Add the tomato and onion to the mashed avocados.
- Add the juice of 1 lime, cayenne pepper, and salt.
- Stir until guacamole is thoroughly mixed and you have a desire consistency. Add more cayenne pepper or salt to taste.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate.
you can do a low fat version of this and use frozen peas in place of 2 of the avocados 🙂
Elyse that sounds so good! I’m going to try that next time. Or you can come to the lake and try it and I’ll eat it.
And I was just wonenridg about that too!
Mmm that looks so amazing. Over memorial weekend, my brother and I went to a Mexican restaurant that does a tableside guacamole. We got to watch them make it in front of us. They added citrus to it, which really made it burst with flavor. I’ve always been a guac fan, but now that I’ve had homemade…I’m a guac enthusiast!
I didn’t use to like avocados either. What were we thinking! I wish I had some chips.
