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?

This is so simple, it definitely makes me want to mush some up this weekend!

My favorite guacamole would have to have onions

I think if you have GOOD avocados, a simple recipe like this is all you need! I do tend to use a packet mix though (tisk tisk). Cilantro + cumin + garlic salt when I don't.
