Guacamole is one of those things that I instantly fell in love with. I didn’t grow up eating it and only ever had it out in restaurants which was nothing fantastic I promise you. But to me it was creamy green heaven.
It took me a while to figure out how to make a guacamole that I liked and I tried everything. With chunks, without chunks. With tomatoes, with cilantro, and so on and so on. I discovered that what Scott and I really like is just a basic and simple guac that isn’t fancy but highlights the avocado well.
This version seriously takes maybe five minutes and then you can get busy stuffing your face with goodness.
Andrea’s Quick and Dirty Guacamole
- 2 Avocados
- 1/2 a Lime
- Hot Sauce (I like Cholula, but whatever floats your boat)
- Garlic Powder
- Chili Powder
In a medium sized bowl, cut the avocados and remove the seeds. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon and place in bowl. With a sturdy fork, mash the avocado until it’s smooth or as smooth as you like it. Add in the juice of the 1/2 a lime, hot sauce, and all the seasonings. Stir and taste to see if it’s seasoned enough to your liking. If not add more and stir again until it’s right.
Serve immediately with chips or vessel of choice!
No measurements on the seasonings because it’s totally to taste. I like a lot of salt, a good bit of hot sauce, and just a dash of garlic powder and chili powder. If you really dig on lime, you can add in the juice of a whole lime.
Quick because it takes no time to make and you’re eating right away. Dirty because the hot sauce and chili powder give it a darker hue.
This is great for tacos, nachos, or just spread on bread as a sandwich glue. It’s great just eating straight with chips and an icy cold brew.
Or ‘rita if you’re down with that.
Do you like guacamole? Do you make your own version at home?
