Guacamole


I am definitely one of those people who could eat guacamole on almost anything - chips, tortillas, crackers -all delicious! I was craving some guacamole with my chicken fajitas and about 10 minutes later I was dumping spoonfuls of this recipe on top of my dinner. I didn't have any cilantro on hand so I didn't end up adding it to this recipe. Nonetheless, I was very pleased with the results and might not put cilantro in my guacamole moving forward as I think cilantro can sometimes overpower the other flavors.

You Will Need:
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 2 avocados (feel to make sure they are fairly soft/ripe)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 lemon, halved

Here We Go:
  • Dice onions and cherry tomatoes and put into medium sized bowl
  • Peel avocados and remove pit
  • Coarsely chop avocados and add to bowl
  • Add salt, garlic powder and pepper
  • Squeeze the juice from one lemon (be careful of seeds)
  • Mix all ingredients together delicately as to not completely mash up the avocado (it should be somewhat chunky)

Serves 2-4
Happy Feasting!

Love guacamole. I prefer mine less chunky. such a great snack and healthy too ( well if you don't eat it with chips that is!)

Gabby, totally agree about the healthy snack! Although, I usually can't resist the chips :-)

Kate, your blog is adorable! So excited to have a new site to add to my reader! Also, is there anything better than guacamole? I don't think so. I actually hate cilantro, so I omit it whenever I make guacamole or salsa, and I really don't miss it.
