Avocados were on sale at the grocery store this week for a buck a piece, so of course I picked a few up since I love-love-love guacamole. I'm sure there are so many similar recipes out there, so I'm not bothering to cite anyone since I just made this from memory.

2 ripe avocados
1 beefsteak tomato
1/2 sweet onion
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp salt
Chopped cilantro, optional

Pit and chop the avocados, but be sure to save at least one of the pits.

Chop the beefsteak tomato, removing the seeds first. Chop the onion. Finely chop or crush two cloves of garlic in a garlic press.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. If desired, add in chopped cilantro. Add in the lime juice and salt and begin to mash with a large fork.

When the mixture is nicely mashed, add in the avocado pit. This helps the guacamole to retain its green color for a longer period of time.


  1. I'm with you and love guac.... and I'm lucky I don't have to share since my husband hates it! This recipe looks delicious!

  2. This looks so delicious - the picture is making me seriously crave some guac - good thing I've got an avacado at home!

  3. Guac is probably one of my all time favorite foods! Try adding a bit of coriander or fresh orange juice your guac somtime, it gives it a fun little kick. :-)
