Once upon a very long time ago, I started a blog while I was in law school. This was a horrible idea. I thought that it was going to be this amazing thing where I could express my creativity. But in reality the poor blog was completely neglected because law school is very, very time consuming. And Daisy was a puppy so she needed constant attention and love. One of my first posts was my homemade guacamole recipe.
This is still the homemade guacamole that I make and the post itself makes me giggle because it was from so long ago! So without further ado, here it is, in all of it’s original glory.
Everyone needs a go-to chips and dip recipe. Everyone. Invited to a party and need to bring something? Impress everyone with your “table side guac” skills! Friends coming over for a girls night? Whip this up in 5 minutes! Need an afternoon snack? This is perfect! Everyone needs guac in their life and I’m here to help you get it.
You’ll need: 2 ripe avocados (meaning they’re squishy to the touch), a red onion, cilantro, a lime, garlic powder and salt.
Cut the first avocado in half.
Remove the pit and scoop out the goodness!
Repeat with the second avocado.
Now chop your lime in half.
And add the juice of half of the lime to the avocados.
Then, quarter the red onion.
And dice it up. **Madison’s tip: don’t feel like chopping and crying? Some grocery stores have pre-diced red onion in their produce section!
Adding it to the bowl!
Next, it’s time for the cilantro!
Chop it up real nice and fine.
And add it to the bowl along with some garlic powder,
and some salt.
Now, mash up the entire bowl, mixing it all together.
I like to use the backside of a larger spoon to mash the avocados together.
You should have a delicious bowl of yum and goodness at this point. I highly advise you taste test it, just to make sure it tastes good you know. And if you want to add more garlic or salt, go for it! I like to keep chips very close by for this step. Very, very close by.
If at all possible, pry your self away from the bowl long enough to grab a plate and plop some guac on it.
And then chow down! Impress all of your friends and family members with your culinary snack skills. Or just make it for yourself after a long, long day of class or work. Add it to taco night, girls night, or your next party. Share with friends or hog to yourself. There is no wrong way to eat your guacamole. Unless you don’t eat it. Then that is very, very wrong! The recipe is below.
- 2 ripe avacados
- Juice from 1/2 a lime
- 1/4 red onion, finely diced
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 - 1 tsp salt (depending on your taste)
- Mash the avocados with the lime juice.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
- Serve and enjoy!
- This recipe can be easily doubled if you are serving a larger crowd.
