Equipment

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Fork for mashing

Ingredients

  • 2 large ripe avocados *see note below
  • 1 roma tomato *diced *see note below
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • salt to taste

Other optional mix-ins:

  • Diced red onion, chopped cilantro, diced jalapeno peppers or spices like chili powder, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, etc!

Recipe notes:

Ripe avocados: if your avocados aren't ripe enough they will be really hard to mash. Ripe avocados will have a little give when pressed with your fingers. Let them sit for a day or two if they aren't quite ready yet. 
Roma tomato: other varieties of tomatoes will work fine! You can also use a 2-3 tablespoons of salsa in place of tomatoes. 

Instructions

  • Cut avocados in half and remove seeds. (*Tip: if making ahead of time, save one seed to store with your guacamole to help prevent browning). Scoop avocado from shell into a small mixing bowl.
    2 large ripe avocados
  • Use a fork to mash avocado until desired texture is reached, make it chunky or smooth!
  • Add salt, diced tomato, and lime juice. (I typically use juice from ½ of a lime. If you like the citrus flavor, you can use a whole lime)!

  • Fold ingredients together until well incorporated.
  • Serve with chips & salsa if desired. Enjoy!

Storage instructions:

  • Refrigerate: mix avacado seed into guacamole and pat down to create a flat surface on top. Cover with a very thin layer of water and seal with plastic wrap or an airtight lid. Your guacamole should last in the refrigerator for 1-3 days. When you're ready to enjoy your treat, pour water out and give it a good mix.
  • Freeze: I wouldn't recommend freezing guacamole that contains tomatoes, onions or other high water content ingredients mixed is as this can cause issues with texture. You can make a batch without mix-ins for freezing and add them later! Place mix-in free guacamole in a Ziploc bag and press all of the air out until flattened. Freeze for up to 3 months!
