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! 

Ingredient Notes:

  • 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.
