The other day I shared an image of my homemade guacamole on Instagram. Everyone oohed and ahh’d. I guess you all love it’s green creaminess just as much as I do! Seriously though – I never realized before how easy guacamole is to make fresh. Usually I just buy it ready made; but not this time. This time I bought the avocados, red onion, tomato, cilantro, lime juice and salt – then set aside some time to be alone in my kitchen.
I don’t do it enough – spend time in my kitchen alone. I miss it.
So here I was. I began by washing and slices my avocados. They were perfect inside! Isn’t it SO difficult to get a good avocado sometimes? We definitely hit the jackpot this time though. Green, smooth and perfect! I popped two peeled avocados into a bowl.
Next, I chopped up my red onion and tomato. They got mixed into the bowl, along with my cilantro, and lime juice. Then I started mashing. My favorite part. 🙂
Then, just like that, it was done and I was munching away on a tasty little treat that I felt super proud of making myself. It was pretty darn tasty too! Not quite as tasty as the best guacamole I’ve ever had at the Coronado Springs Resort in Disney – but I enjoyed it all the same. But seriously, if you ever go to Disney – check out the pomegranate guacamole at the restaurant in the Coronado Springs. MMM!
My Homemade Guacamole Recipe
Sorry – no pomegranate’s, but you could add them!
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 small red tomato
- 1 small red onion
- 1 tsp cilantro – I used a paste.
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- sprinkle salt
Slice the avocados in half, remove the hard center, and scoop the soft avocado insides into a bowl. Using a potato masher – mash the avocado until it is the consistency you’d like. I usually leave a few avocado chunks in mine. Next, slice a tomato and onion into small chunks – add to bowl. Add cilantro, lime juice and salt – mix to combine. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers (although they won’t last long before turning brown or getting eaten).
