Best Basic Guacamole

What you need: 

1 lime, divided
2-3 medium sized ripe avocados
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. In a medium sized bowl, squeeze enough lime juice to cover bowl (just so avocado will be in contact with the lime juice). Scoop out the avocado and place in the bowl.
2. Add the garlic, and the rest of the lime. Squish the avocado mixture with a fork until it is to your desired texture (I like mine pretty smooth).
3. Add the tomato, salt, and pepper, and mix. Taste and add more salt or pepper if needed.
We love it on bean and rice tacos, or just with baked tortilla chips!

Preparation Time: 
5-10 minutes
Cooking Time: 
Servings:

SO HOW'D IT GO?

There are assertive accoutrements that celebrities, no amount who they are, just adulation to backpack Hermes Birkin. We already showed you an amazing annular up of  Replica Watches  celebrities and their Celine Luggage Totes, and today we are breaking down the celebs that love, covet, and backpack Hermes Birkins. The Birkin is not alone the ultimate around-the-clock classic, but it`s aswell the bag that celebrities accept to delay to get just like the blow of us. The Birkin is the equalizer; celebrities and approved folk akin ache for this bag, but a lot of  Replica Handbags  them (and us) can`t get it the minute they wish it. Yep, that`s right: Hermes doesn`t "gift" accoutrements to celebrities. It doesn`t accept to.

this is pretty much how i make my guac, but i havent ever lined my bowl with the juice, is there a reason for it? i'd like to know. thanks for posting it!  I <3 Guacamole! ;)b

Well, I just started doing it so that when I put any avocado in there..it would keep more of its green color. Since it's in there..while I'm chopping up other things. I don't know that it makes THAT MUCH  of a (or any?) difference, but hey..why not?! I've noticed that my guac always has a brilliant green color, and stays that way for a long while (until it's all gone). So, maybe try it and see if you can tell a difference. I really love fresh jalapeño and basil in there too. It's my new default way.

When I make guacamole I always prepare the avocado last. This, in addition to the lime juice (also for great flavor), helps keep everything as green and fresh looking as possible. And when you store it you can put some plastic wrap directly on the surface as you would a pudding to keep it from forming a "skin." I still have plastic wrap from years ago that I wash and reuse :D

My boyfriend often buys store made guacamole.  He pays a fortune for it too.  I used this recipe to show him how easy it is to make homemade guacamole.  From now on, this will be our go-to guacamole recipe.

This was great. I added half of an onion finely chopped and lots of fresh cilantro. If you are taking this somewhere and do not want it to brown, you can save the pits from the avocado and place them in the bowl and remove when serving.

Thanks for the recipe!

Wait, huh??  Really??

The pit idea is great! I made this last night, also (what a coincidence). Guac is one of our favorite things.  :)
