If you're coming back based on yesterday's post on how to deconstruct an avocado: welcome!

This is my basic guacamole recipe. Is it fancy? No. Do I really measure perfectly when I make it? No.
That's because it's not from a recipe. You do know people did cook/bake on their own before Pinterest, right? It's true! Sometimes people just threw things together until they tasted good... and that's how this guac recipe came about:
What you'll need (makes a ridic amount of guac):
4 small avocados
2 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno pepper
1 small onion
1/2 small tomato
2 small or 1 large limes
a ton of cilantro (at least 1/2 cup)
salt, pepper, and cayenne 

How to make it happen:
Step 1: Take apart your avocados (using this awesome how-to), and save the pits!
Step 2: Throw your onion, jalapeno, and garlic into a food processor and process until finely minced/shredded. 
Step 3: Cut off the thick, outer 3/4 inch of your tomato and add it to the food processor (throw away the gross squishy inside of the tomato).
Step 4: Add your guacamole and mash it in with your mixture from the food processor. Add the juice of 1 lime, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne. Mix it all up and TASTE.
Step 6: Rip your cilantro and mix in as well. 
Step 5: Add more lime, salt, pepper, and cayenne as necessary to your taste! Keep your avocado pits in the mixture...I swear it helps the avocado from oxidizing as fast.

That's it folks. Eat with some tortilla chips and enjoy! 

If you like things a little bit more spicy, sprinkle your chips with some cayenne!

For best results, make the guacamole close to when you're going to serve it, or else after a few hours it can oxidize (turn brown). Don't worry- it still tastes JUST as good, it just might now look as pretty :)

Lots of cilantro & lime makes this recipe great-
What do you put in your guacamole to make it amazing?

  1. I make my guac very similar–and don't really use a recipe either! Jeez, now I'm totally craving some!

  2. I can never down guacamole. Yours looks delicious!

  3. I go cilantro crazy when I make mine. I just can't help myself. I love it so much! xx

  4. I can't stand cilantro... I've tried it so many times. I wish I liked it. I can detect in anything (and not in a good way.) When I make my guac, I add white pepper, garlic powder, lime juice, tomatoes and red onion. SO good! Had some tonight :)

  5. Wow thаt was odd. I just wrote an eхtremely long comment
