Guacamole doesn’t need to be a chore to make. Here is a simple method I use to whip up a small batch for breakfast. You’ll need a few ingredients to make this. Choose a ripe avocado, soft, but not mushy. I purchase my avocado in varying degrees of ripeness so I have them all week. Along with the avocado, you’ll need a fresh lime half, squeezed into a small bowl. to squeeze the lime juice into. It’s easy to store extra juice. I also use for the same purpose. Just use whichever is handy! A useful tool in the kitchen is a . It is easy to use and well worth the $5 or so for it.
So you have your avocado and lime juice. Now you’ll want to slice the avocado lengthwise using a sharp paring knife. Start by putting the point of the knife in the center to find the core pit. Follow around the pit with the knife, cutting the avocado in half. Remove the pit. I keep a garbage bowl on the counter while I am working. So I discard the pit in that bowl. With your avocado halves on the cutting board, use the paring knife to cut the inside into squares. With a spoon, scoop the avocado into a bowl. Dip out two teaspoons of juice and pour over avocado. The juice helps keep the avocado from turning dark for a little while. If you don’t enjoy the taste of lime, you can leave it out. Just beware the quac will start turning brown rather quickly. Make it last in your meal prep.
You’ll need a Roma tomato diced to add to the avocado and lime mixture. Lightly toss together. Now the mixture is perfectly fine to serve as is, but you can make it guac by adding two teaspoons of . Lightly stir into the avocado mixture. Bam, you got fresh guac!
The instructions on the bottle call for a lot more of each ingredient so it only makes four batches if used according to the bottle. I just use the smaller amount of ingredients along with just two teaspoons of seasoning to make a smaller batch of two servings with no left overs. I serve the guac in a small white shown in the photo, which is just the right amount. Guac does not keep well. I don’t like to eat it once it turns dark, so eat up and don’t try to save it.
