With the weather changing I feel the need to make guacamole more than the normal 2-3 times a month. Guacamole has to be one of the best recipe inventions ever created. Avocado toast is pretty good, but guacamole is out of this world. Who cares if its extra at Chipotle? It is very well worth it. But what is better than paying the extra at Chipotle? Making it for yourself at home and enjoying it every. single. day. Make it for yourself and put it on everything!
This recipe makes a decent size batch. This can be made as an appetizer to bring to a summer party or to have on taco Tuesday. It is a crowd favorite at barbecues in the summer. We like to make guacamole as a snack on the weekends or for our Burrito Bowls. The next day we use the leftovers with breakfast. Guacamole is the perfect addition to eggs or put on toast. Think, avocado toast on steroids.
Normally, I just mix everything well with a spoon, but I so badly want a Mortar and Pestle. So if any of my family or friends are reading *cough* *cough*, it’s now on my Amazon wishlist. But whatever you have to mix these ingredients up will do. I personally like to make guacamole with the avocado still a little chunky but that is just my preference. If you prefer to have the avocado smooth, my suggest is do that first before adding the other ingredients into the bowl. Make sure to squirt some lime juice on top before storing in an airtight container to limit browning.
So, with this recipe I hope you save your extra charge at Chipotle and make it for yourself at home! It is really quite simple and guaranteed so much better. Plus who doesn’t love avocado toast or should I say guacamole toast the next day?
From our kitchen to yours, cheers!
