Guacamole


This is not an in-depth recipe. It doesn't take a lot of time or a lot of ingredients. But it's WAY better (and much cheaper) than store bought guacamole, takes only a few minutes, and is a great holiday barbeque side dish. Oh, and P.S., on Monday I'll post my 7 layer dip recipe. Also not hard, but delicious.




Guacamole

2 medium avocados (ripe)*
2 tsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. salt
2 dashes hot sauce















Slice avocados in half. Use a spoon to remove the insides of the avocados.















Remove and discard the pits. Place the insides of the avocados in a medium bowl.















Add lime juice, salt, and hot sauce. Mash and stir until well mixed and mostly smooth.















Keep tightly covered in the refrigerator.

*Ripe avocados are a dark green color and are slightly soft when gently pressed. If they are mooshy or starting to smell funny, they are too ripe. Buy a different one.

  2. I love it, too. Sometimes I add a small amount of pureed fresh onions, but I've recently taken to skipping that step because the extra 30 seconds sounds like so much work! Besides, I've found that I like it just as well without!
