Simple Guacamole Recipe

Sometimes a simple guacamole recipe is not that simple.  Rest assured, this simple guacamole recipe on the other hand is very simple

The key to a good simple guacamole recipe is really the same for any recipe, starting with the best ingredients possible.  There are only a few ingredients in a simple guacamole recipe, so getting the best shouldn’t be too hard (especially if you live somewhere like California or Florida).

Simple Guacamole RecipeAvocados – The main and defining ingredient in a simple guacamole recipe.

Tomatoes – Not everyone uses these in a simple guacamole recipe, but I do because of the texture, color and sweet-acidic taste they bring to the party.

Onions – Whatever variety you prefer, scallions (green onions), red, yellow, white they all can be used in a simple guacamole recipe.

Limes – Notice how I didn’t say lime juice?  It’s because fresh, straight-from-the-citrus membrane is the only way to go for this simple guacamole recipe.  That bulk, shelf stable stuff you see on the store shelves isn’t even in the same category.

Cilantro – What a glorious and international flavor defining herb this is.  One of my favorites, and a must have in this simple guacamole recipe, or any other in my opinion.

Garlic – Fresh is best when it comes to garlic, but if you have to do the dry stuff, stick with the granulated, the powder is a step down and the “Garlic Salt” is a no no.

Salt & Pepper – Of course.  What would we do without these crucial flavor-enhancing main stays?
