Avocados are a staple in my kitchen year-round because I love them! I could eat avocados every day and never get sick of them. Think of the versatility. You can eat them in salads, on sandwiches, in quesadillas, as guacamole, or just put them on a tortilla with a little salt and ta-da!
I am going to share with you THE EASIEST GUACAMOLE RECIPE IN THE WORLD! It is so easy, that really it’s not even a recipe. You may question my abilities in the kitchen when you see how simple it is, but trust me when I tell you that every single time I serve this guacamole at a gathering someone will as me for the recipe. Of course once I give it to them, they look at me incredulously like it couldn’t possibly be so simple. But it is, it is that simple! You just let the avocados do all the work as far as flavor goes. Enough intro, here’s the recipe…
- 4 ripe avocados
- salt to taste
- 1/2 a lemon or lime
Halve and pit 4 avocados.
And that’s it!
You may be thinking, but Mami that’s so plain. I’ll tell you what…give it a taste and you’ll see it’s simply delicious! If you want to add more to it to fancy it up, go ahead, but I’ve just provided you with the base for any variation of guacamole. Most of the time I serve salsa with guacamole, so I don’t feel the need to add the same ingredients to the guacamole that are in the salsa.
In closing, I’d like to thank the avocado for being so delicious. Did you know that the world’s very first avocado was grown in Mexico, where avocados continue to thrive because of the rich volcanic soil? Mexico is the only place in the world where avocado trees bloom naturally four times a year making them available year-round, which is perfect for someone like me who likes to eat them all the time.
