simple guacamole

May 28, 2010

Guacamole is one of those wondrous things isn’t it? Creamy avocado at your desired level of smooth or chunky, salted and scooped up with a tortilla chip or spread inside a taco shell.

One of the main things I love about guacamole is that it need not be fancy or stuffed full of a million things to be great. Don’t get me wrong, throwing some cilantro in there and adding certain spices is fun, delicious and a great idea. But if you’re low on ingredients, you can whip up an awesome, simple guacamole in no more than 5 ingredients. Four at a push!

Simple Guacamole


  • 2 medium avocados, peeled, pitted and smooshed up to your desired level of chunky/smoothness
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • salt, to taste
  • lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 tomato, diced (optional!)


You don’t need directions! You literally just smoosh it all up in a bowl and immediately get those tortilla chips out, get the drinks flowing (I’ll have a Tecate, please. Thanks very much.) and get eating!

Guacamole travels well, too — in fact, it’s traveling with me today, as I hit the road for Madison!

What does your favourite guacamole have in it?
