this weather we are having here is just ridiculous. ridiculously good.. so pulling out warm weather snacks like guacamole just seems necessary. in addition to making this just because it is good, i'm making an effort to finally eat more "clean" and less processed junk. i'm not going to go as far as make my own chips, yet. but making the guac from fresh ingredients (instead of my go to premade option) made me feel like overall this was a better choice.
not only is this a pretty good little snack, it's perfect to whip up when you have guests coming, inevitable in spring. i make this almost every time we have a backyard shin dig or barbecue. here's how.
this recipe makes a nice sized serving for about 4-6 people.
you'll need 3 ripe avocados, 2 tomatoes, 1 onion, 1 lime and seasoning to taste (i use garlic salt)
chop everything except the lime and add to a bowl. squeeze the juice of one lime in the chopped mixture, add your seasoning and mash. i use a wisk... i know, random kitchen tool to mash guac. but that's what my mom taught me and it just stuck:)
and that's it! serve with your favorite chips and watch your guests (or yourself) devour. i'll let you know if i ever get ambitious and make tortilla chips.
