Guacamole fans unite! This is the best yet most simple guacamole recipe for anyone who’s a fan of this delicious avocado dip. Living in California and avocados go hand in hand, but with good reason! Avocados are an excellent source of healthy fats and have such a creamy texture. This easy guacamole recipe will make you never want to buy the store-bought stuff again.
Guacamole is one of those things that just taste a million times better homemade. Pair with tortilla chips, add to a Mexican dinner, have a spoonful on a salad, or hop on the avocado toast train and spread it on your toast for an easy breakfast! It’s naturally vegan, gluten-free, and my paleo/keto/Whole30 lovers out there go BONKERS for the avocado. Clearly what I’m getting at is guacamole is not only easy to make, healthy, and so delicious, it’s very versatile and it’s essential to have a go-to recipe in your arsenal – that’s if you love avocados as much as me 🙂
Sometimes the simplest recipes are the ones that taste the most delicious. Guacamole only requires a handful of ingredients to make a fresh, great tasting dip. I learned how to make guacamole from a Mexican restaurant near my college (University of New Haven in Connecticut) and this recipe forever stuck with me. I asked the restaurant to come to my global marketing class for an assignment I was given about food in cultures… I know what a hard class 😉 The girl who showed us was from Mexico and this recipe is legit.
This guacamole recipe includes fresh tomatoes, diced red onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeños, and a hint of salt. The salt level is KEY to taking this guacamole dip to the next level. I found the salt really brings out the flavor in the avocado and makes the guacamole taste so delectable.
Tip: Salt, taste, then salt again (as needed!) The perfect salt level makes the best guacamole recipe!
