I love fresh guacamole, it goes so well on something like avocado toast, served along side a Buddha bowl/salad, or to use as a dip for your tortilla chips. This keeps well in the fridge for a few days if you squeeze some lemon or lime over it before covering and refrigerating it in an air-tight container.
I know some people like smooth guacamole, if that’s your preference you can do a finer dice on the onions and tomatoes.
Easy and delicious fresh guac.
- 2-3 ripe avocados
- 1/2 lemon or lime (juiced)
- 1/2 onion (finely chopped)
- 1 small tomato (chopped)
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 handful fresh cilantro (chipped finely)
- salt (to taste)
- 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
In a bowl big enough to hold all the ingredients, mix together the chopped onions and tomatoes, add in the garlic along with the cilantro.
Scoop out the flesh from the avocado, discarding the peel and pit. Add the avocado to the same bowl and crush it with a fork. You can keep it as chunky, or make it as smooth as you like.
Add the lemon juice, peppers, and salt. Taste and adjust the amounts of each of these until they are to your liking.
