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.

  1. 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!
