This easy guacamole recipe comes together quickly, and is much more tasty, frugal and fresh than store-bought guac.
My dad loves to have guacamole. My sister and I grew up having it all of the time. And even to this day, if we are having a family dinner at my house, no matter what the theme of the dinner is (pizza, pasta, chicken, soup, birthday, etc…), he’ll usually bring some avocados and tomatoes to make guacamole. We love it, and we don’t complain of the variety of cuisine.
If you have never made guacamole, it’s time to give it a shot! It hardly takes any time at all, and it taste so much more fresh than what you can buy at the store.
Make sure you taste it before you serve. Does it need more salt? Don’t be afraid to add a little more. How about more lemon or lime juice? The citrus is undeniably present in my best guans, so make sure you can taste it.
The Verdict: This has been a family staple over the years, we make it all the time, and we all love it! Even my avocado-avoiding kids love this tasty and easy guacamole recipe.
