This picture really does not give this guacamole any justice. I promise it is way...more green than the picture shows. This guacamole recipe comes from my sister Amy. She came to Maine from California for a visit in January. Amy made guacamole at one of our family parties. It was a BIG hit.
Before I learned Amy's recipe, I was one of those people who ate store bought guacamole. I know, I know...yuck!! I will never go back. This is so simple, and so...delicious. Plus, as I have said before, I can control my own ingredients when I make foods at home.
All you need is:
Two ripe avocado
1 medium tomato (squeezed)
2 clove garlic (mashed)
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tbs diced white onion
1/4 tsp fresh cilantro
a couple turns of freshly ground black pepper
no salt needed
