I adore guacamole, and it’s shockingly simple to make. A lot of the ingredients are up to personal preference… I usually include: avocados, tomatoes, purple onion, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, jalapeño, and salt.

Don’t be shy with the salt; avocados can be pretty bland without it.

Accidentally missing from these photos: the jalapeño and the lime. Let’s pretend they’re there.

guac ingredients 3 (1 of 1)

I used: 5 avocadoes, 1/4 of a purple onion (chopped in a food processor), half of a jalapeño (chopped), a handful of cilantro, 1 clove of garlic, two small tomatoes (chopped), and a 1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan sea salt.  I scooped the avocados into a large bowl, added the salt, and mashed it together using a potato masher. Then, I stirred in the remaining ingredients and added a squeeze of lime juice.

So easy, and so delicious.

    Not only does your recipe sound yummy, I like your potato masher. Do you remember where you bought it?
