Would you believe that I didn’t like Guacamole until last year? It turns out that there is good guacamole… and BAD guacamole! Once I tasted GOOD guacamole there was no turning back, I had to figure out how to make it myself!
After several failed attempts, and even more mediocre ones, I finally found a combination my whole family loves every single time.
Today I want to share my favorite, super simple guacamole recipe with you!
- 2 Avocados
- 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
- 1 Lime
- 1 Jalapeno
- 1 Roma Tomato
- 1/8 c. cilantro
- 1/8 c. chopped onion

- Add 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
- Chop the following: Roma tomato, jalepeno, onion, and cilantro.

This recipe for guacamole is exactly what I need. My little sister has been nagging me about making some, but I do not know how to make it correctly.
I love guacamole and can’t wait to try this recipe. This looks so delicious and doable.
Guac and chips is my favorite food. I think I could eat it every day. Pinning this recipe for later, it looks delicious!
And now you’ve got me craving GUAC!!
Yum! This recipe sounds so good! DELISH! Thanks for sharing and those torlilla bowls are darling!
recipe sounds like it would be fairly easy to make and be so yummy, could not get the giveaway to work? not sure my fault or what
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. It should work now.
I definitely agree that there is good and bad for most any food. Guacamole is something I love, but have yet to make at home even though it is so simple.
That looks so fresh and healthy Amanda. I’m going to save this for my daughter because she loves guacamole and wants to try making her own.
You are not alone in this avocado discovery. I don’t like straight avocado like some people eat it. It has to have other stuff and mashed up real good. So Im with you on this avocado stuff.
I love guacamole but have never made it, this recipe looks really good.
