Easy, basic guacamole– a perfect staple recipe to have in your kitchen!
Use these measurements as guidelines and then make to taste
2–3 medium avocados (when I diced them, I got about 1 ¼ cup)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (or a good squeeze from ½ a lime)
1/2 – 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic (depending on how you like it, I always add 1 tablespoon or more)
2 tablespoons finely minced onion
2 heaping spoons of sour cream (I measured 1/4 cup)
Salt (and pepper if you like) to taste
Optional: 3-4 tablespoons finely diced tomatoes (If I happen to have them I add them, if I don’t, I don’t!)
Scoop out avocado from skins and mash in a bowl with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and combine well. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. I like to make it at least 30 minutes ahead of time to let the flavors combine and intensify.
