Guacamole. Seriously, this is one of those foods that I just can’t stop eating, no matter how much I tell myself to stop.  I made a double batch of this the other night to have with my pork tacos.  I ate so much chips and guac before dinner that I only ate 1 hard shell pork taco for dinner, I was already that full.

The photos show twice as much in terms of ingredients then I’m listing below.  Below is my recipe is for a single batch of guac.  (We had 6 adults here on Friday night and my “double batch” it wasn’t completely gone at the end of the night).  If you want to make a double batch, simply use 2x the amount of ingredients listed.

Notes: a single batch is good for 2-4 people, a double batch is good for 4-8 people.

2 ripe avocados
1 tomato
1/2 yellow onion
juice from 1/2 lime
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Peel your avocados, remove pit.  (Save one or both pits and keep in the guac.  Helpful tip: this slows down the browning of your guac).


2. Dice your tomato and onion.


3. Add your tomato and onion to your avocados.


4. Smash your avocados with a fork, leaving some small chunks.


5. Squeeze lime into guacamole.  (Start with 1/4 a lime if you don’t like too much lime flavor and continue adding to taste.  I like 1/2 a lime squeezed into mine).

6.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  (For a single batch, I would do 30 “grinds” of each of my salt and pepper grinders.  I have no real measurement for this.  Again, start with less and taste-test to your desired flavor).  Notes: you don’t have to use salt and pepper grinders, normal is fine too.

7.  Stir until well combined.

ENJOY with your favorite tortilla chip or taco!
