Avocados. Love them. Sliced, chopped, cubed, or pureed. I eat them on toast, with eggs, black beans, pizza, quesadillas, soup, sandwiches…but when I’m in the mood for guacamole, I smash ’em up. I had a few ripe avocados and thought, why not? So while Finn napped, that’s what I did. Guacamole can be simple or complex – I went for simple.
Cut avocados in half, remove pit/seed, scoop out deliciousness – I used an ice cream scooper (I usually just use a spoon) and realized, this is, the perfect tool for this job….
Smash avocado (with a masher) with the fresh lime juice, and then add a bit of salt (to taste), cumin, chopped cilantro and and that’s it.
We enjoyed dipping organic blue corn chips into it, then into chipotle salsa…enjoy it as you wish…
3-4 ripe avocados
1 teaspoon cumin (or more, if you like)
a good pinch (or two) of coarse salt
freshly squeezed lime juice from 2-3 limes
1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro
Variations to add…
a bit of chipotle powder
dice fresh tomato
a dollop of sour cream
finely minced red onion
The great thing about guacamole is it can be as simple or complex as you like. Its only drawback is that it needs to be eaten fairly quickly – it doesn’t keep too long – but, is that really a drawback? (:
And below you’ll find a printable version – yeah, I figured it out (well, mostly…)!
How do you like your guacamole?
Nice green color

Thanks for putting the recipe on a PDF. Love the photos, but don’t like to print them.
Your welcome! Thanks for the suggestion – never would have thought to do that! Now I just have to play around withe the lay-out/style of the PDF’s…all things in time. (:
Looks great to me. Plan to print the fish cake recipe.
Thanks Mim! Hope you like them.
I LOVE avocados! (and I love this post) 😀
And I thought I was the only person putting avocado on toast.
Isn’t it the best? I love squeezing a bit of lime juice and salt on it too!
