Guacamole is one of my favorite dips, right behind Galliker's french onion chip dip. It's super easy to make and just has such a great, fresh flavor...and people tend to love it so it usually goes over well. This recipe is very traditional and honestly, I don't believe guacamole should ever be over complicated....don't mess with it! This entry is a two-parter. I made a big batch of guacamole to make homemade burrito bowls one night. So my next recipe will be the burrito bowls. I figured this guacamole recipe deserved it's own post...it's that dang good!
When beginning to write this entry, my mind started thinking, where did guacamole come from? Thank god for Google, I got a pretty quick answer that I thought was intriguing.
Prep time: 15m | Cook time: 0min | Total time: 15min | Yield: 3 cups
- 2 rip Hass avocados
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 jalapeno, including seeds, finely chopped
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- Cut the avocado in half and then remove the pit. Scoop the avocado flesh out and place in a medium bowl. Toss and coat with lime juice.
- Add the salt and using a fork or potato masher, mash until a smooth consistency is achieved
- Fold in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Taste the guacamole and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Settler Beans, Calico Beans, Cowboy Beans, Hobo Beans, Bean Beans the magical fruit the more you eat the more you....You get the idea...As much as I want to take credit for this recipe, I can't, it is one that my Mother gave to me that I imagine she acquired over the years. Who's Wilma? no idea...but boy can she make a mean batch of beans!
Now if you are looking for a healthy side dish, please just hit the back arrow in the top left corner (if you are using Chrome) because you have definitely made a wrong turn. This is one of the comfort foods that you make a huge batch of for a family get together, then everybody raves about them afterwards and ask for the recipe. My idea of the perfect venue for these beans is 4th of July, Memorial Day, or Tailgates.
Of course I wasn't doing any of those things, we had a baptism! Which is pretty much on the complete opposite side of the party spectrum for those events. But, hey, it was a family get together, the weather was beautiful, and we had a great little barbecue with family to celebrate the occasion. It's also worth noting that this recipe is EXTREMELY simple, makes a ton, and is just perfect for a party!
