Super Simple Guacamole

Super Simple Guacamole
This guacamole is SO easy to make - and delicious! If you've ever bought one of those overpriced "Guacamole Mixes," you'll kick yourself when you see how easy this is!

I don't usually measure to make this, but I measured last time I made it so I could record proportions here. Don't hesitate to just make it to taste. You may prefer yours very spicy, or very tart, or more garlicky - make it the way you like it, using this as a guideline:

Guacamole
Seed, remove peel and mash with fork
1 ripe Avocado (it should barely give when you squeeze it - rather like a ripe banana, but not be soft and mushy)

Add the following to taste:
Lime Juice till creamy texture is reached (I used 2 teaspoons)
Taco Seasoning to taste (I used 1/2 teaspoon - you can use homemade at link or store bought)

Garlic Salt to taste (I used a pinch - about 1/8 teaspoon)
That's it!

Additionally, you can add if you like:
Diced Tomato
Finely Diced Red (or other) Onion
(these ingredients not only add a lovely texture & flavour, they also reduce the fat content, cost, and calories per serving)

Besides having a wonderful flavour and being super easy, this recipe allows you to control allergens and unhealthy additives (Did you know that some commercial Guacamole has added Mayonnaise to optimize the manufacturer's profits? Yuck!)

This is the method I use for pitting & peeling Avocadoes - but I do have friends who have cut themselves by removing the pit this way. If you'd rather not use the knife method, scooping the pit out with a spoon also works quite well, but with much less risk.

  1. Sorry if this is a duplicate... not sure if my first post went through... I am an email subscriber, but I haven't been receiving your posts in my inbox for awhile now. I even checked my junk folder and they aren't going in there. Is anyone else having these issues? I love getting your posts right in my inbox and I'm missing it!

  2. Hi Anna,
    I love guacamole so I was delighted to see your easy recipe for this delicious dish. I like the idea of adding onions, tomatoes and taco seasoning. I enjoy eating mine with zesty, sundried tomato flax seed crackers!

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

Unfortunately, I am having to put on Word Verification because of a sharp increase in spam attempts. Sorry for the inconvenience - I hate it too!

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
