Classic Guacamole

In case you haven’t noticed, this past week has been all about keeping it simple on the blog.  One bowl cookies, four ingredient hot dips, and dessert that you can mix up in minutes and leave to bake while you enjoy dinner … all so unbelievably easy it’s not even funny.

I was out on the Vineyard last weekend (more on that tomorrow!) and, when on vacation, keeping things simple, easy and fast is a must. Don’t get me wrong, there are many times and places for complicated, fancy desserts and dinners, but the Vineyard is not one of them. That’s a fact.

Which is why, despite it being one of the most simple and commonly made appetizers ever, guacamole is the perfect thing to make while on vacation. It can be made in minutes, served with a bag of tortilla chips and everyone will be soso happy.

So you guys, when it comes to entertaining on vacation, don’t complicate things! Keep it simple. Kick back, relax and make guacamole.

Prep time: 5 minutes

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Tortilla chips, for serving

Remove the pulp from the avocados and scoop in to a medium sized bowl. Mash until avocado is desired consistency (I like a few chunks for texture!)  Add the red onion, tomato, cilantro and lime and mix until combined. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Serve up with your favorite chips and enjoy!
