Easy, basic guacamole– a perfect staple recipe to have in your kitchen!


Use these measurements as guidelines and then make to taste

23 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)
1/21 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.


Try it with chicken or beef taquitos or served on fajitas or taco chicken.
