One of my absolute favorite fruits are avocados. They’re so versatile and you can do so much with them. I love to put them in wraps and on sandwiches, but my absolute favorite way to use them is to make guacamole! Guacamole with chips or veggies to dip in is such a delicious and healthy snack, in moderation.
I’ve tried several guacamole recipes over the years but this recipe is by far my favorite. What I really love about it is its texture. It’s generally smooth compared to most guacamole you might see, which makes it perfect for dipping without making too much of a mess.
Now this recipe I also made for a big party – so the portion is quite insane. Also, as you may know by now, I am a huge fan of tasting and trying recipes as I go. This is why my recipes aren’t always super specific with measurements, but if you have any questions – please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer!
8 Small Avocados
1/2 of a White Onion
1 large jalapeno (or two small ones)
- Use a knife to cut open each avocado. Scoop out the flesh and place it into a large bowl.
- Mash up the avocados with potato masher until it gets into a relatively smooth consistency.
- Give one good splash of lime juice into the bowl (1 tablespoon ) and continue to mix.
- Dice up the tomato and 1/2 of a white onion and add to the bowl. Mix this up with a spoon – do not mash.
- Slice open the jalapeno and remove the seeds. (You can keep some of the seeds if you like it very spicy, but I just like a little kick). Cut the jalapeno into very small pieces and add the bowl. Mix again with a spoon.
- Add the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Start with 1 teaspoon of salt & garlic powder and a 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Taste and add more if necessary.
- Finish off with a squeeze (or splash) of lemon juice.
Note: I do think that the lime and lemon juice are both needed as they both give a different citrus and tangy finish.
