Easy Guacamole Recipe!

It's no secret that I LOVE avocados. I will eat them every which I can. My favorite way to eat them is to make guacamole.

Guacamole is so delicious and can be eaten alone or in other food. I love eating it with tortilla chips and on tacos. I also love adding it to white rice and putting it on top of my steak. Sometimes I will just eat spoonfuls of the stuff.

It is so much better than the processed guacamole you can buy at the store. Plus, it is wickedly easy to make and very healthy. Remember avocados are a good fat! Here is how I make my guacamole.



Ingredients needed: avocados, lemon or lime, cilantro, red onion, jalapenos, tomatoes and spices. 


Chop jalapenos. 


Chop cilantro.


Chop red onions. I like using red onions because they are sharper than white or yellow onions. But you can use any onion you like. During summer, I use green onions from the garden. 


Chop tomatoes. You can leave these out if you want. 


I use lemons for the acid but limes work as well. It is a taste preference. 


Chop avocados. 


Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sometimes, I add a little coriander powder and ground cumin. I also sometimes add green chile powder if I want more heat. That's it. In less than 20 minutes you can have fresh guacamole. 


Ready to eat! Yum!

Buen provecho!!

  1. Finally someone who makes their guac like me! We also add chopped queso fresco, but that takes away a bit of the healthy aspect. Yum!
