Guacamole is quick and easy to make with avocado, lemon or lime, cilantro, garlic and salt.

Guacamole

I have always loved avocados but in the last few months, they have become a staple on our menu.  I eat them pretty much every chance I get.  I also really love guacamole, but the recipe I was using was complicated and called for a list of ingredients, including sour cream.  I knew there had to be a simpler way.

Guacamole

So I asked my resident Mexican food expert, Jacqui, how she makes guacamole.  She told me avocado, lime, and cilantro plus salt and garlic if I wanted.  Well, that sounded easy enough.  Except I only had lemons on hand and no cilantro.

Cilantro

Then I discovered freeze dried cilantro at the grocery store and it has changed my life.  Now I can make all those Mexican recipes I love but never make because I never have fresh cilantro.  I love this stuff!

Guacamole

The first dozen times I made this guacamole, I just used a fork and mashed it all together.  But then I realized that my Tupperware Quick Chef Pro would probably do a good job of getting a smooth guacamole with a few chunks – just the way I like it! I love my Quick Chef Pro! It’s basically a manual food processor that takes up way less space than my electric one and works just as well.

I was right! Just a few turns of the handle and I had the perfect consistency for dipping.

The recipe is all about personalization.  I use about 3 avocados to feed my husband and I and I use 1 avocado if it’s just me.  Adjust the lemon juice, cilantro, salt, and garlic to your liking!
