Easy Homemade Guacamole

The easiest way to make guacamole is to mash ripe avocados, pitted and peeled, of course, with a potato masher to the consistency that you like. I like it a bit chunky. Add a spoonful or 2 of your favorite salsa, to taste. A squeeze of fresh lime juice is optional, but perks up the flavor. Make this the day of the fiesta.

If you like heat in your guacamole, add one small seeded and finely diced jalapeno ;-)

Ingredients:

  • 2 large avocados, peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 small tomato, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed garlic
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Stir together the avocado and lemon juice in a glass serving bowl, add the onion, tomato, cilantro, and garlic, mix well, season with the salt and pepper, and serve.

If you are not serving immediately, store in the refrigerator covered with a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the guacamole and then another piece around the top of the bowl to help keep it from turning brown. Some people swear by keeping an avocado seed in the center of the guacamole to help keep from browning, but I've never tried it.
