Snackin’ on Guac

March 16, 2009 § Leave a comment

Eating guacamole by myself at school is sometimes a waste; at our supermarket, it only comes in medium-sized tubs, so by the time I’ve had my fill, my guac has already turned an unappetizing brown color. Home, on the other hand, is a different story. When Laura and Jackie get back from school, I can put together a fresh guacamole in less then 10 minutes and it’s gone in 5.

In my opinion, guacamole is better when it’s simpler. This recipe is really basic, and I love it with some blue or lime salted tortilla chips.


3 avocados, pitted and peeled [just use a spoon to scoop out the flesh]
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion, finely diced
salt and black pepper
juice from 1 lime
*optional: some chopped cilantro and 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
Put everything in a bowl and mix well. You can use the back of a fork to mash the avocado to start. Add the cilantro and jalapeno, if you want, right before serving. Season to taste.
