Is it just me or once you start eating guacamole can you not stop? I mean it’s hard to have self control with any chip and dip but I think guacamole and salsa are my achilles heel.
This Simple Homemade Guacamole is no exception to my love and lack of self control. I like to serve mine with some chips as well as fresh veggies to try and even things out a bit.
Funny story I used to think I was somewhat “allergic” to avocados. Every time I ate them I would get a terrible stomachache. I avoided them for awhile but once I went vegan it was not possible.
I later realized my body has a hard time metabolizing fatty foods. Even those with healthy fats can make me feel not so great. Now I just try not to eat an entire avocado in one sitting and I will be fine.
Well the truth is sometimes I am willing to have a bit of an upset stomach for guac. Hey what can I say, I told you it was my achilles heel!
- Avocados – You will want your avocados very ripe to make guacamole but not so ripe that they are brown. It’s a fine line in the world of avocados.
- Onion – I think red onion works best for this recipe although you can use whatever you prefer and have on hand.
- Tomatoes – Cherry tomatoes have a bright flavor that I like but you can use any kind of tomato.
- Cilantro – A must have ingredient for any guacamole!
- Lime – When using fresh citrus roll it on your counter back and forth a few times, this makes the juice come out easier.
- Garlic – Fresh tastes best, use a garlic press or mince it very fine.
- Salt – I use a fine Sea Salt.
Recipes To Use Your Guacamole With:
Simple Homemade Guacamole
- 3 large ripe avocados
- ¼ cup red onion diced
- ½ cup cherry tomatoes quartered
- ½ cup cilantro chopped
- ½ lime juiced
- 1 clove garlic minced (or ½ tsp. garlic powder)
- salt to taste
- Chop up your onion, tomatoes and cilantro.
- Slice avocados in half, take out seed and scoop avocado pulp out of shell, place in bowl.
- Add lime juice, garlic, salt and mash until desired consistency. I like my guac smooth but still a little chunky.
- Add onion, tomato and cilantro.
- Stir gently to incorporate ingredients together.
- Taste and season with additional garlic powder, salt and lime if needed.
- Serve with fresh veggies and chips.
- This guac is not spicy at all. If you would like to add spice I would recommend adding about 2 tbsp. fresh diced jalapeño.
