Guacamole

I LOVE guacamole. Oddly enough, I’ve never made it myself.

UNTIL YESTERDAY.

I looked on Pinterest for guacamole recipes, and ended up just putting in the ingredients that I wanted in amounts that sounded good. And it came out amazing!

  • 2 1/2 avocados (I had bought them days before and they were perfectly ripe)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • Corn (the canned kernels. I literally just grabbed a handful)
  • Cilantro, finely chopped (minced? I used half of a “bunch” from the produce section)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Juice from 1 1/2 small limes

I added everything except the tomato and corn to a bowl, mixing and mashing until it started to get smooth but still chunky (how I personally like it).

Then I added the tomato and corn and folded them in.

And done! I used 2.5 avocados only because I used half of one for another recipe (a baked nacho recipe I’ll post). I could have included onion as well but used a whole onion in yet another recipe (a crockpot chicken taco recipe I’ll also share!).

Mmmmm. I put the avocado pits in since that supposedly helps it from turning brown, but really I did the plastic wrap trick to lock out the air and today it’s still perfectly green. I’ve also heard of using lemon juice, and putting water on top/draining it before you eat again, but meh. I expect to have the rest devoured by tomorrow anyway.
