Guacamole Recipe

Day two of avocado went better than day one (these photos are still from day 1 though)

No shuddering.

No grimacing.

Lass seemed to enjoy the green stuff, and she's getting the hang of this eating thing.

When I bought an avocado for Lass at the grocery store yesterday, I picked up a few extra to make guacamole. I never used to like guacamole until I started making it myself with fresh ingredients. Here's the recipe I've adjusted over the past few years.

3 avocados, mashed with a fork
2-3 scallions, minced
2 garlic cloves, pressed through garlic press
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro
1 tsp Kosher salt

Mix all ingredients. Enjoy. All the ingredient amounts are adjustable to your taste. I like lots of lime and cilantro in my guacamole, but you could use a bit less, for example. If you have any left over that you're storing in the fridge, put it in a container with an airtight lid, but put on some plastic wrap pressed down right onto the guac before sealing the lid to help minimize the avocado turning brown.

We don't eat chips much in our house, but this is great added to tacos or burritos or as a dip for fresh veggies. Tonight we had it with enchiladas suizas (sauce made with tomatillos, poblano peppers, and a bit of sour cream rather than lots of cheese and cream). Yum.


  1. yummy!! and Lass looks like a pro eating! I can't believe she is already old enough for solids! Our kiddos are growing up too fast!
