Guacamole Time!

And we are BACK! After a week or so of little to no activity on our blog- I finally have some time to sit down and share some new finds with all (3) of you readers!

This past weekend was Memorial Day and that usually means BBQ, friends, sunshine and more BBQ!

I decided to make some guacamole for everyone, and I have to say I think it was one of my best attempts. So in honor of summer officially being upon us, here is my recipe!

Ingredients:

2-3 Avocados (Depending on size. I use the ratio of 2 avocados to 1 tomato and that seems to work)

1 tomato

Half of 1 lime

1 tsp. crushed garlic

Diced red onion

Cilantro

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Slice avocados in half and scoop out the pit

Cut little slices while still in the skin and scoop avocado out with a spoon into a large bowl

Using a fork, stir and slightly mash the avocados until slightly creamy. Don’t completely annihilate them- you don’t want liquidy/mushy guac.

Dice your tomato into little cubes (above)

Mix in the tomatoes- I try to avoid smashing them at all

OH HELLO HERB SCISSORS! YOU’RE BACK!

What’s that you say? You’re only $4.95?!! IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY- GO BUY THEM HERE!

Cut (go scissors, go) or chop (boring) the cilantro. Use however much you want here, but be careful not to add a huge bunch. This stuff doesn’t mess around with flavor.

Dice the red onion into small cubes

Squeeze the lime and stir in your garlic, salt and pepper!

If you’re like me and you like an extra kick – add some sliced jalapeños or a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce.

There you have it! Happy summertime to us all!
