Fast & Easy Guacamole

10 August 2011

We love avocados around our house and there is nothing better, quick, and easier than a bowl of guacamole for a quick summer get together.  Last night we made a black bean version of Enchilada Casserole, so we whipped up a bowl.

If it’s just the three of us, this is the version I make.   If we’re having guests for dinner or people over for munchies, I will double or even triple the recipe.

You will need:

  • 1 ripe avocado {look for dark skin that gives a bit when you press lightly with your thumb}
  • 1/4 red onion, minced
  • 1/2 lime
  • sea salt

Mince the red onion, scoop out the avocado, juice the lime, & sprinkle with sea salt.  Then smoosh with a fork or a potato masher, whichever you have handy.  We like it with some chunks of avocado.  If you prefer yours completely smooth, toss everything into a food processor.

A minute later you’ll have a bowl of yummy guacamole to enjoy.

Wow, I have never made guac without tomatoes, but now that I see this, I think, What's the point in tomatoes?! I need to try this, although I might have to add a jalapeno ;-)

Wow! Talk about easy. That looks delicious :)

I'm glad that I'm not the only mom out there that fell victim to that darn TV. Kids are capable of entertaining themselves w/o staring into a colorful world of cartoons!

My almost 2-year old LOVES guac. I just came back to this recipe because she saw it at Anderson's yesterday and I told her I'd make some. She saw the pictures of the avocado, lime and onion and started screaming "acamole, acamole!" Needless to say, I think we're going to be making this for lunch. :o)
