It’s almost Memorial Day & you need to take a dip to your family cookout. Look no further, I got your back!
The truth is. I think you’re weird if you don’t like guacamole. I mean it’s an essential part of life that I take pretty seriously.
All jokes aside, if you’re a guac fan you’re going to love this recipe. It’s easy, it’s fresh, it’s delicious. I can’t take credit for this one. I searched and searched until I found one that was easy and delicious & one that didn’t contain that guacamole package (you know the one) from the store.
This recipe is actually from Natasha over at natashaskitchen.com. I’m so obsessed with watching her weekly video recipes. That’s actually how I stumbled over this one.
I did make some changes to her recipe just to suit what I love in a guac. Of course, the variations of switching this recipe up are endless. You can add fire roasted corn, jalapeños & even bacon if you want to.
My mouth is watering, so let’s jump into this…
3 Tbs lime juice
1 roma tomato (optional, I recently stopped adding this & have been enjoying it even more)
Half of a red onion
1 bunch cilantro (optional, if you’re not a cilantro person)
½ teaspoon sea salt or table salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
- Cut avocados in half and remove pits. Scoop the flesh of the avocados into a bowl and mash them into a chunky consistency. (I use a pastry cutter for this. But you could use a potato masher or even a fork.)
- Pour the lime just over the avocados and let sit while you prep the other ingredients.
- Dice up half a red onion, the roma tomato and the cilantro & mix them into the avocado mixture. (I used half of the bunch of cilantro, but Natasha’s recipe calls for 1/3 cup. Use as much or as little as your heart desires.)
- Add salt & pepper.
- Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes for flavors to develop.
I promise this no fail guac will impress whoever you’re feeding this Memorial Day!
