Easy Guacamole



Gluten Free Easily requested some yummy recipes with very few ingredients, this was the recipe I shared with her.  I have checked out the other recipes and they look awesome!  Go check them out.  You can find my contribution to her blog here.  I have also shared this recipe with my friend,  Chef in Disguise and her blog a few months back.

It was one year ago this week that my family and I did something CRAZY!  We sold all of our belongings, rented out our home and bought a travel trailer.  Destination unknown.....We set off towards Texas because my Hubster (that's what I call him) had some work options.  We landed in Texas for 6 months.  Texas is quite large and so we explored every detail..Gulf of Mexico, Austin, Dallas, East Texas and we drove through the west side.  Along our travels we were introduced to lots of TEX-MEX and it was HOT, HOT, HOT!

We learned to eat a lot of foods that were not cooked.  Even with air conditioning it was unbearable to heat up the trailer.  Our go-to food soon became fruits, salads and guacamole.  We love avocado's.  this is a recipe that I just recently made for our family.  It does not matter how much I make, it never last more than a few hours in our home.  ENJOY!


Guacamole

4-6 ripe Avocados
1/2 bunch of Cilantro
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tsp. fresh Lime Juice
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. pepper
Salt to taste

Cut the avocado in half, remove seed.  Using a spoon, remove avocado and add to large mixing bowl. Dice red onion.  Add onion, lime juice, garlic powder, pepper and salt.  I use 2 butter knives and cut the mixture in a criss-cross pattern.  We like chunky guacamole.  Continue until the consistency is to your preference.   I tend to have to add more salt to mine.   Serve with chips, on hamburgers or with salads.

  1. Sherron, this is such gorgeous guacamole! I feel like I could reach through the screen and scoop some on a tortilla chip right now. I'm so glad you shared it for this month's Go Ahead Honey event. :-) There are so many of us "guac" lovers and knowing that you don't really have to follow a recipe is wonderful news! ;-)
