Today, the title pretty much speaks for itself.
It’s that time of year when sitting outside with a margarita in hand and eating chips and guacamole for dinner sounds completely acceptable. At least, in my book it does.
Guacamole is something that I normally just left up to the pros. Why mess up a good thing? However, it’s a bit unrealistic for me to go buy guacamole from the local Mexican restaurant every day this summer. I mean, I could, but there goes any cute summer dresses I want to buy…
Thankfully, my friend in all her infinite wisdom showed me how to make the easiest, no-frills guacamole that is perfect for any upcoming Cinco de Mayo festivities, back yard parties or work lunch.
I took this to our small group last night and there was not a trace to be left in the bowl. Also, just FYI this recipe officially feeds about 10-12 people.
- 4-5 ripe avacados
- 2 small limes
- 1 small onion (or half a large onion)
- 2 roma tomatoes
- 1 tbsp. of cilantro
You just slice your avocados, dice your tomatoes and onions and mix them all into a bowl with your cilantro.
Next, take your limes and squeeze all the juice over the mixture and then stir. Now, the lime juice really is the key for this recipe. I think it’s what gives the guac such a unique flavor without using any salt. So, you want to make sure you have really juicy limes or you might want to thrown in an extra lime for good measure.
Once everything is mixed up, grab some chips (or just your spoon) and enjoy!
