Easy Guacamole Recipe

Guacamole Easy Guacamole Recipe [donotprint]
Yesterday I showed you how to make an easy pico de gallo. Today I’m introducing you to her cousin, easy guacamole. What I love about this recipe is the fact you basically make pico de gallo and add some to mashed ripened avocados. I told you it was easy! It’s like getting 2-for-1. And the guacamole is good…. really good.

True story – I’ve been making guacamole like this for years. I typically would make a batch of pico de gallo and use some of it to make guacamole. I thought I was being clever and resourceful. After all, I hadn’t seen or heard of anyone making guacamole like this. But then, I had noticed in The Pioneer Woman Cooks Cookbook, that Ree Drummond (aka The Pioneer Woman) also makes guacamole like this. Drats!  I guess I’m not as ingenious as I thought!

So if you’re looking for a great recipe for guacamole, look no further. Enjoy! [/donotprint]

    Nice post, avocados are a super source of veggie protein. I don’t put sour cream or mayo either, but I put a little salsa in there or fresh tomato and onion. Fresh lemon juice and a little olive oil.

    Best Regards,

    Gorgeous pics… great recipe! This is the recipe (well, not as pretty) that my MIL told me about when I was first married. Shes been doing it that way for years and years, and I know that cause she is old. Ha! Im sorry. It is so, so wrong of my to leave a snarky comment about my MIL on your blog because I know she will never find it. So wrong. :)

    Be blessed-

    I can’t get enough of guacamole. It’s one of those things I hated as a kid, but love as an adult. I should admit that the type I knew as a kid was that green blob they throw on taco at fast food restaurants though. Ha, ha! Of course, it is much better when homemade.

    Hi Alice,
    I make guacamole like that too! Here’s another thing I discovered that I just love…you know how slippery it can be to mash an avocado–well, don’t cut, peel and mash it. Just grab it whole and mangle it with your two hands! It’s fun and can be a shocking little stunt to pull off in front of someone who hasn’t seen it done. After a bit of squeezing you can squirt the mashed-in-skin avocado into a bowl through the broken skin. Faster than mashing!

    You have such a great site and you make such beautiful food, and are beautiful yourself–I wouldn’t be surprised to see you hosting your own cooking show soon!

    Thanks for the great site!
    P.S. Your autumn cake would have been #1 if I had been a judge!

    Thanks for the idea of putting it in a bowl, Great idea! I used to just leave it spread all over the kitchen counter and it was hard to dip chips in. Plus I had no place to sit my Martini

    Oh, thanks for this recipe! I love guacamole but I’ve never found in the shop the one that tastes real. Now I will be able to make it myself and I sure hope it’ll be much better than the one I bought.

    i love avocado, its really good for your skin, can help lengthen your skin, you don’t need any facial wrinkle cream. However, if it takes time to put avocado on your face, you can eat it. The more you eat, the better your blood, and your skin will get better inside out.
