I don’t remember the first time I ever had guacamole, but it’s not something that I grew up with. It’s one of those things that I discovered as an adult and really love to eat any chance I get. Today I have an easy guacamole recipe for you to make. It uses fresh avocados, onions, tomatoes, and a few other ingredients. This is fast and easy to make and so much better than anything you would find ready-made in the store.
By now I have eaten a lot of guacamole in my life and have found that homemade ones are by far the best. Let me know if any of you have ever found a store-bought one that you like.
I have made the recipe below many times over the years for my friends and family. They always love this dip and have asked for the recipe. I’ve been using this recipe for a quick appetizer whenever we open up a bag of tortilla chips.
- 2 large ripe avocados
- 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black ground pepper
- 1 tbsp. canola oil
- 1/4 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup seeded tomato, small diced
- 2 tbsp. green onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
Halve the avocados, remove the pit, and peel off the skin. Small dice one of the halves and set aside. Mash the other 3 halves in a bowl and add lime juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oil. Mix well, then fold in the diced avocado, following with tomatoes, cilantro, yellow and green onions. Taste for seasoning.
Transfer to a serving bowl and place an avocado pit in the dip to keep the guacamole from turning brown. Keep the pit until serving time. Cover and refrigerate an hour before serving. It’s best to eat guacamole while it’s fresh!
