Holy Guacamole!

I was asked to bring some guacamole to the primary board meeting on Friday night. Guacamole may be my all-time favorite food (gasp! even more than chocolate!). I love guacamole in and on pretty much everything from tortilla chips to chicken, to vegi sticks, to burritos to salads. It's an all-purpose delicious food and very simple to make.

There are only 5 ingredients in the perfect guacamole. Ripe avocados, red onion, limes, kosher salt and cilantro. The photo show the amounts I used - 3 avocados, 1 small red onion, juice of 2 limes, salt to taste (about 1 teaspoon) and a big bunch of cilantro.

Chop it all up and dump it into a bowl and them start cutting and mixing it with a big spoon.

That's it. Simple and so yummy!


  1. Guacamole is one of my favorites also. I will have to try this recipe for it. Thanks for posting it!

  2. I love guac. Piper's a big fan too. I also add diced seeded tomatoes. It adds a nice texture.

  3. guess what i don't like? guacamole! i have to admit it looks so good to me that i always ample it here and there, but i just don't like it (because i don't like advacodos. again i want to like advacodos and will taste them now and then, but it's always: "yeah, i still don't like that." i think it might be a texture thing.)

  4. Your photos make it look so beautiful I think I'll attempt making it!

  5. I made it and it was awesome! Loved it, thanks!
