Simple Guacamole Recipe

A simple recipe that only takes 10 minutes to make. The avocado ripeness plays an important part in the taste of the Guacamole, if you press the outside of the avocado and it gives in a little, then it is perfect.  Always taste test to make sure it is not past ripe and not good.

Serve with biscuits or cut up some pita bread and crisp the strips in a pan with some light vegetable oil. 

  • 2 ripe Avocados
  • 1/2 a lemon or 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon grounded black pepper

First cut the avocado in half and remove the seeds, scoop out the avocado from the peel and put in a small bowl.
Using a fork or sometimes the back of a spoon, mash the avocado against the side of the bowl until smooth. Squeeze the lime or lemon and add the salt and pepper to the mix. Cover and cool until served. Sometimes to spice things up and add to the taste, I like to add some tabasco sauce to the mix, just a little for taste. Green tabasco sauce is good and mild enough so as not to overwhelm the avocado.
