Simple Guacamole


I’ve had guacamole in some form for the last 4 days.

We had friends over for Game 1 of the World Series and I made a 6 avocado batch of guacamole. Yes, that is a lot of guac. Guess what? It disappeared, so the next day I made another mini batch of guacamole just for PhillyBoy and I, and yes, we ate the whole thing. I also bought some gorgeous roses for the house, just because.

Good guacamole, in my opinion, MUST be homemade. It is so easy to make and tastes so fresh and delicious. I can’t believe there was a time when I hated avocado! I remember going to Hawaii with my friend’s family as a kid and ordering a turkey club with NO AVOCADO (yes, in caps) every day for lunch by the pool. One day it came with the avocado and I refused to eat it. If only I knew how tasty avocados really are. I finally learned when my friend Lauren asked me to help set up a party she was having at her house. I was in charge of making the avocado according to her recipe. It was a bowl of creamy heaven, and I was hooked. After that memorable night (in more ways than one) I went on a quest to perfect the recipe. I think I finally did, and now I am sharing it with you!

RhodeyGirl’s Simple Guacamole:

Ingredients:
3 avocados
1 medium tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
juice of 2 limes
2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
dash kosher salt

Directions:
Using a potato masher or fork, mash the avocado, tomato, and red onion in a medium bowl. Don’t overmash as a few chunks of avocado add great texture to the guacamole. Stir in the juice of 2 limes, cilantro, and a dash of kosher salt. Enjoy!

I like to pair this with a few blue corn tortilla chips, or for an even tastier combo, use it in place of salad dressing on a fresh salad. Tomorrow will be another night with another World Series game, and yes, I plan on having more of this guacamole! You should too! GO PHILLIES!

While watching the game I also plan on packing for the Foodbuzz Festival, which I am attending in San Francisco this weekend!

    I 100% agree that guac needs to be homeade. The packaged kind you get from the store is just nasty.

    The real stuff is full of the buttery taste which I love. I could eat a full batch myself, easily.

  9. Those flowers look amazing šŸ™‚ Love the gac recipe. Hope you are having a great day!
