This easy guacamole recipe requires only a few ingredients, no dicing of onions and you don’t need a food processor. The only challenge is resisting the urge to eat this with a spoon.
I don’t have a gift for choosing ripe or even close-to-ripe avocados. That is definitely not my super power. I’ve tried squeezing them, but if everyone before me has squeezed the same avocados, they can give me a false result on my ripe test. I’ve also tried looking at the top and judging by the color of the stem whole but that doesn’t work for me either. They all smell the same so that test doesn’t work for me and I really don’t like the weird looks I get when I move in to start sniffing those little green treasures.
Once in awhile I get lucky and find some avocados that are juuuuuuust right. Actually I ask my other half to pick them for me. He has that super power. I owe him a thank you for making this guacamole possible for
my our snacks this week. 😉
This recipe is inspired by my brother, who really knows his way around the kitchen. Some guac recipes are simple while others are a little more time consuming and require kitchen appliances. This is the most simple recipe I could ever come up with. I would call it the lazy way to make guacamole but that sounds a little too negative. I prefer to call this an efficient way to make guac for people with busy schedules. 🙂 How does that sound?
This is basically Daniel’s recipe but I just changed a couple ingredients and wrote the words but it’s all him.
Go and get yourself some ripe avocados (are they in season for you?) and smash up some of this guacamole! Serve with these homemade potato chips.
