This guacamole recipe is the recipe I’ve used for more years than I can count! It is a fool-proof way to make the absolute best guacamole.
You want to make sure to pick the perfect avocados. They should be firm, but give just a little when you press your thumb into them. If you buy them at the store like this, but don’t want to make guacamole or use the avocados that day, you can place them in the fridge to halt the ripening process. If you buy them and they are rock hard, placing them near bananas and in a paper bag will help them ripen quicker.
Adding the lime juice at the beginning of the guacamole process helps to make it easier to smash the avocado.
I love having pieces of tomato in my guacamole, but if that’s not your style you can leave that part out.
- 2 avocados
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- Dash of onion powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 small tomato, chopped
- ¼ cup white onion, chopped
Cut avocados in half lengthwise and scoop the “meat” out with a spoon and discard the shell and pit.
Put the avocado in a bowl and mix in minced garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper and lime juice to taste (if using a fresh lime use both halves). Mash together with a potato masher.
Gently mix in tomato and onion.
Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Enjoy!!
