Do you know how many April Fools Day jokes I fell for yesterday?
Much to my dismay, I’ve always been a gullible person who wants nothing more than to trust what people tell me. I was probably one of those kids that actually looked up “gullible” in the dictionary just to make sure it was there. I’m so pathetic.
Thankfully, we’re not a practical joke kind of family over here in our home of two (+ one fur baby). I was thinking about playing a practical joke, but the only thing I can ever think about to do is to tell people I’m pregnant. And, well — now, that’s just not so funny anymore — ha!
So instead of playing any kind of joke on my husband, instead I made us Mexican food. A lot of Mexican food. I want to eat nothing but Mexican food for the rest of my life, including this guacamole.
I actually couldn’t remember if I had a guacamole recipe posted anywhere. So instead of looking, I just made one. Because you know what they always say — two guacamole recipes are better than no guacamole recipes, right? Right.
For real though, guacamole is by far one of the easiest and most delicious foods to make on this planet. All you need is a couple of avocados, a tomato, an onion, some spices, and some lime juice. Write that down. Go to the store. Make this guac.
Unfortunately, it’s almost gone now. Incredibly tragic. Another incredibly tragic point? Spring break is over. Yes, I’m allowed to complain even though most hard working adults don’t get spring breaks anymore.
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 tbsp. chopped onion
- 1/2 tomato
- 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp. granulated garlic
- sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes
- Begin by cutting your avocados in half. Remove the pits (I do the “stab with a knife, twist, and remove” method), and scoop flesh out with a spoon into a medium sized bowl.
- Using a fork, mash the avocados until they are chunky. Don’t mash too much because you’ll be adding and mashing more as you continue to make the guac.
- Chop and add your onion, cilantro, lime juice, and tomato to the bowl and stir well to combine.
- Finish by adding your spices, and add more to taste if needed.
Oh, and just so you know — this isn’t the only Mexican recipe you’ll be getting this week. Just so you know…
