Fresh Guacamole


I’m sure by now you know about my obsession with guacamole.

There is nothing better than a fresh batch of homemade guacamole!

My kids gobble this stuff up!

There is nothing they love more than a ripe avocado {and who can blame them??} 

This amazing recipe includes nothing but fresh produce!

Start of with 4 avocados. You’ll want them soft to the touch, but not mushy.

Cut them in half and use 4 halves to chop up and squeeze the juice of one lime into the pile of chopped avocado.

Use a fork to mash the avocado and lime till it’s almost smooth.

Cut a jalapeno in half and remove the seeds.

Note: You’ll want to wear gloves, or use a spoon to scoop out the seeds! Beware of using your fingers!! You’ll feel as though your hands are on fire! {speaking from experience}

Dice up the jalapeno into tiny pieces.

Cut up 6 cherry tomatoes.

I like it chunky by the way!

Now to dice an onion in just a few simple slices follow these steps:

Cut the top and bottom off the onion, and slice in half vertically.

Place the half face down and make several slices with a sharp knife, making sure to leave about 1/2 an inch uncut on the back {to hold it together}.

Now slice the opposite direction of the first slices and make your way towards the back of the onion. Like so…

Simple way to dice up an onion!

Ok, back to the guacamole…

To the mashed avocado add the jalapeno, minced garlic, tomatoes, onion, and a few sprigs of chopped cilantro, and the rest of the avocado chopped up.

Like I said, I prefer it chunky!

{if you prefer a smoother guacamole you can put everything into a food processor and blend it until you achieve your desired consistency}

Give it all a good mix…

Oh yes…that is what mama likes…

    Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s

    Second will be the rate at which the center pumps the bloodstream (heart rate).
    Most people are benefiting from the results of the kettlebell workout because the added benefits are incontrovertible.
    But in reality the ideal exercise routine to reduce weight is “the exercise you do.

  5. Thanks to the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were
    just planning to do some research on this. We wound up a grab a manuscript from area library however think I learned more produced by post.
    I’m very glad to determine such great information being shared freely available.

  6. This sounds like the perfect recipe and it looks so good! I still have yet to make it homemade from a recipe I find and have it turn out awesome. I will be trying this one soon!! Guac and chips can easily be dinner for me. LOVE!

    I will be adding this RSS to my e-mail and could
    glance out for much more in your exciting content.
    Make sure that you update this yet again soon.

  8. I tend not to comment, however I read a few of the responses on Fresh Guacamole – I Wash You Dry.
    I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of the responses look as if they are coming from brain dead
    visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at other places, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of all of your social networking sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
