This weekend, have some creamy Homemade Guacamole. And while you’re eating it, enter StrawmarySmith’s first giveaway ever!
Guacamole is just one of those recipes. You add a little of this, little of that… wooops – too much of that! Add more avocados to even it out, then a little more of that other thing, and a little more… And before you know it, you have a tub of guacamole and you wish you just bought the pre-made guac at the grocery store. So next time, you go ahead and buy the pre-made guacamole, but it’s eh. Just okay.
I’m here to help you end your guacamole struggle! I know we all like having different things in our guacamole, but this recipe is one that seems to appeal to almost every taste bud. Still, if you don’t like tomatoes or onions, or want extra of any ingredient, feel free to alter the recipe as needed. I know for a fact that my mother-in-law will be tripling the “pinch of cayenne” at the very least.
- 4 medium avocados
- ¼ cup diced red tomato
- 1 tbsp diced red onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp lime juice (from about 2 limes)
- 1 tsp chopped cilantro
- 1 tsp seasoning salt
- pinch of cayenne
- fine salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- In a medium bowl, mash the avocados with a fork until desired consistency. Combine all the other ingredients in the same bowl with the avocados. Add fine salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chips or veggies for dipping!
Use the rest of your ingredients with Mango Avocado Salad, and your tomatoes with Crispy Caprese Gnocchi!
