Homemade Guacamole – Fresh, Easy, and Super Yummy!

From the first time I had guacamole; it was love at first sight. Cliche right? But Oh so true. Avocados were not part of my food group till guacamole entered my life. Now I make sure there is always avocados stocked in my fridge.  Guacamole is so versatile; can be used as a side; dip; or garnish. The recipe I am sharing with you all is one I’ve used for the past 5 years. A recipe my father loves for me to make whenever we have some extra avocados lying around. I hope you all love this simple yet refreshing dish!

Total Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: 4-6 people

Ingredients

3 avocados
1/2 a red onion
1/4 of a jalapeno
Salt
Pepper
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Handful of cilantro
Optional: 2 small-medium tomatoes

Instructions

  • Cut 3 avocados in half length wise and take out the pit using the same sharp knife. Once that is done, scoop the avocado out and place in a bowl. Mash up the avocados using a spoon till chunky or smooth; whatever consistency you prefer.
  • Finely chop up half a red onion and place in the bowl. Do not mix yet!
  • Finely cut 1/4 of a jalapeno and place in the bowl. If you like a little extra heat; include the seeds and cut up some extra jalapeno in there.
  • Roughly chop up some cilantro.
  • Optional: Dice the tomatoes and place into the bowl.
  • Juice half of a lemon over the mixture as well.
  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and add salt and pepper to taste. If not acidic enough; squeeze some more fresh lemon juice!

Take out those tortilla chips & go for a dip or use this as a refreshing side to a heavy meal.

Bon Appétit! 🙂
