Ever have a difficult time finding that perfect recipe for something you love? Today’s post is about a Guacamole recipe I’ve been trying to perfect for the last few years. I would buy store packaged Guacamole seasoning, with directions and they never came out to my liking.
In October/November of 2016, I took a trip to Mexico and it was on our way home, in the Cancun airport to be exact, that I came across my perfect guacamole recipe. We were eating lunch in a restaurant in the airport and they had a “traveling guacamole stand”. So I said, ok I’m going to try this because I had yet to have some fabulous guac my whole trip there. This was by far one of the best recipes I had ever tasted. I made sure to watch how he made it very intently. It was by far the EASIEST recipe EVER! I should have followed the KISS rule with this recipe all along, keep it simple stupid!
Ready to have your mind blown by this super delicious and super easy Guacamole recipe? Well, here you go!
Makes 2 servings
- 1 – Super soft/ripe avocado
- 1/2 – Fresh Lime
- 1/2 – Medium to large tomato
- 1/4 – Red onion
- Himalayan salt in a grinder (to taste) *Get this from Thrive Market at a great value!
- Fresh Ground Pepper (to taste)
- Cilantro (optional – I don’t use it in my recipe because cilantro tastes like soap to me)
Slice up the avocado into easily mashable pieces and place in a bowl.
Mash avocado to your preferred consistency. Sometimes I like it really smooth and I’ll use my hand blender and sometimes I prefer it chunkier. That’s the beauty of this make it how you like.
Next, dice the tomato and mix with the mashed avocado. Save the rest of the tomato for another batch later.
Third, slice the lime in half and juice into the avocado-tomato mixture. You can either do this by hand or use a juicer.
Next, dice 1/4 or less of red onion (I’m not the biggest onion fan so I use little onion. Feel free to use more if you prefer) and add to mixture.
Last, add Himalayan salt (approximately 12-18 grinds) and ground pepper (about 5-8 grinds), mix well.
Now go grab your favorite tortilla chips or some celery and carrots and enjoy!
