Simple Homemade Guacamole
This Simple Homemade Guacamole is so easy to make. Your going to love it!
My family loves guacamole. It has such a great flavor combination with the avocados, garlic, jalapeno, a pile of cilantro with a squeeze of lime. Really, what’s not to love. It’s one of those simple, healthy dishes that’s so easy to make. We love it so much in our house, That’s why we always try to have some avocados on hand at home. Avocados are not only healthy but can be used in so many things!
Another favorite thing to make with them is Avocado toast. I tried it a couple years ago and oh my goodness, where have I been. I couldn’t believe I was just discovering this now! Guess what? My little one loves avocado toast too! I know there are many ways to make it, but all I do is toast some bread and spread on the good stuff. Then sprinkle on some salt and pepper and Bon appetite! Simple, but oh so good! Now if I could just have a avocado tree in my backyard!
I know Guacamole can vary. Some make it with tomatoes and onions. And others may add in some cream cheese. I can’t say I dislike any variety. I mean, they all involve avocados. They are all good! We just make ours this way because it’s simple, just like my avocado toast.
Back to that Guacamole… My husband makes the best! Not just guacamole, but also homemade salsa. When we have a gathering, can you guess what we love to make? Yep, you guessed it. Our guac and salsa. I’ll have to fill you in later on that salsa. I always joke with my husband that someday we will be selling it in the store, but first let’s show you how to make some yummy Guacamole.
Let’s get started!
Simple Homemade Guacamole
Serving size 4
Prep time 15-20 mins
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 cloves of garlic- minced
- juice of half a lime
- 1 jalapeno pepper- seeds removed
- salt & pepper
- about 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
- Tortilla chips
If your making it for a larger group just add more avocados and increase the garlic, lime juice and cilantro and season to taste. Simple as that! If it doesn’t taste right just add more.
Also don’t attempt to make guacamole if your avocados are not ripe. Nothing can fix that. My husband describes it like a unripe banana. It just doesn’t taste right.
Avocados are tricky to pick, and I hate when you buy them thinking they are good. Only to cut into them, and they are brown. So disappointing! They should be soft but not squishy. The hard ones need to sit longer.
