Easy Guacamole Recipe
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 4 ripe avocados
  • ½ lemon or lime, juiced
  • ½ ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed
  • 1 TBSP lime juice, taste test then add up to one more TBSP (lemon works fine, too)
  • ¼ cup finely diced onion (see above for onion color, we preferred red but sweet is the safest bet)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • pinch pepper
  1. Cut avocado in half and remove seed. Score avocado and scoop out flesh.
  2. Mash with a fork. Don't overdo it, the less you mash the chunkier the guac.
  3. Next, add remaining ingredients, except tomatoes. Use additional lime after you've taste tested.
  4. Fold in tomatoes just before serving to retain maximum freshness.
  5. To chill, cover tightly with plastic wrap, ensuring wrap is against the guacamole. Air causes oxidation and this turn the guacamole brown.
