Easy Homemade Guacamole

Super easy to make and quick to disappear.

Guacamole in Bowl

Nothing beats fresh homemade guacamole.  It’s a real crowd-pleaser.

Guacamole makes a wonderful appetizer served with tortilla chips, and a scrumptious topper for burgers, omelets, scrambled eggs, salad, toast and  sandwiches.

And it of course tastes amazing served with Mexican food such as tacos, tostadas, taquitos, and nachos.

This recipe for guacamole serves 3 but after the chef does the “taste testing”, it may be more like a serving for 2 because this guac is so scrumptious that it’s hard to stop eating it.

Speaking of taste testing, it’s important to add enough salt to give guacamole the best flavor possible.

So make sure to add more salt if needed.

This guacamole is best when made right before serving so the color is nice and bright.

  1. If you plop the seed back in with the guac after it’s made, it will help keep it from turning brown, then just remove it before serving.

  2. Looks wonderful, and I do love guacamole with my eggs 🙂 Never tried it as a replacment for salad dressing though, will have to give it a try…

  3. This looks so easy to do. I’m totally bookmarking this! Thanks for sharing!
