Picture of Guacamole Recipe
IMG_2689.JPG
This is the way we make guacamole in my house. It's a super simple recipe.

Nearly every time Tyler and I go shopping, we get the supplies for guacamole and make it together. I woke up feeling homesick this morning, and decided I'd show everyone how to make guacamole the Ratfink way. It's the best way, in case you were wondering. :) I can't say it always stays exactly the same, but this is a good base recipe for guacamole - if I let Tyler run wild he puts lots of crazy things in it, even crushed flamin' hot Cheetos and mustard. He will try anything.

This guacamole is also fantastic on nachos. Need a recipe? Try my oven nachos.

Step 1: What you'll need:

Picture of What you'll need:
  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 small tomato (a roma or smaller)
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1/4 of a large red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • lemon or lime juice (we've made it with lemon juice, and it tastes just as good as lime juice!)
  • salt and pepper
  • chili powder
You'll also need a knife, cutting board, a fork and a container to mix it in.

After adding lime juice, add several tbs. plain Greek yogurt to keep it from browning

We have almost always just used hot sauce, avocados, and garlic salt. Yours looks better than ours but ours can take at the least of ten minutes if you get ripe avocados.

This is, to me anyway, the ONLY way to make Guacamole! And the seeds will make pretty plants, even if they don't produce tomatoes and peppers.

Oh yeah, also this Guacamole is so much better on a sandwich (if you can save some that long) than mayonnaise any day (don't like mayo - eck) and so much better for you besides just being yummmm, it is healthy.

I love it on sandwiches. Cheese and guacamole is so good. :)

You forgot the cilantro.

Nope, left out on purpose: while I like cilantro, Tyler does not. Ahhhh compromise. :)
