Super Simple Guacamole

Ok, please don’t get mad, but I am not going to give you exact measurements on this recipe. If you are someone who always likes to measure and follow a recipe exactly, I’m going to push you outside of your comfort zone with this one.

Trust me. You don’t have to measure. You do have to taste though. You might like more cilantro than me. You might (likely do) like less salt than me. Figure out what you like.

Plus, if you’re at all like me, you buy a bunch of herbs, cilantro in this case, and use only a small amount and then stash it back in the fridge. A week or so later, you remember that it’s in there and plan a meal so you can use it up. Only to pull out your herbs to find just a tiny bit is not wilted and brown. Oh well, you’ve planned this meal and you need your guacamole so you just use what you have. See where I’m going with this?

Your recipe will turn out just fine even without measuring the ingredients. And it will be delicious!

Just to make it even easier, I’m giving you a video of your’s truly making this recipe. Enjoy! Or laugh your heads off. 🙂 My daughter enjoyed it. She said I should have a show on the Food Network. It’s nice to have a fan.

Instructions
  1. Chop cilantro finely, add to bowl, squeeze juice from lime into bowl. Sprinkle in a little salt and pepper.
  2. Split avocado in two and remove pit (see video above), use spoon to scoop flesh from skin and place in mixing bowl. Mash! My favorite mashing tool is my old school potato masher. A fork works well too.
  3. Once mashed to your liking, stir it up well and taste. If you're going to be eating it on plantain chips, taste it with a plantain chip. This helps to get your seasoning correct.
  4. If not serving right away, place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Press the plastic down right on top of the guacamole. You want to block out all of the air. This will keep your guac from turning brown. Store in the refrigerator.
