"This is certainly one of the easiest guacamole recipes I have ever encountered. As a guacamole connoisseur, I was highly skeptical. After learning that one of the more famous Mexican restaurants in northern New Mexico uses a similar recipe, I decided to give it a try. The taste was amazing!"

Two ingredients are all that's necessary when one of them is a good, buttery avocado. Well, maybe three...I added a few drops of lime juice. Another tip for keeping the guacamole brightly colored if making ahead of time - press Saran Wrap directly against the avocado mixture to keep air from reaching the surface.


A true guacamole connoisseur knows the less you add to guacamole, the better it is. If I have it, I'll add a good sweet onion and some finely chopped tomatoes. Avocado, salt and garlic, that's all you need.


Definitely easy and very tasty! My husband isn't a huge fan of cilantro so I thought I'd give this a try. I didn't have garlic salt, so I used sea salt and added some minced garlic. I also added a bit of fresh lime juice. To me guacamole needs a bit of cumin so I added a little over a 1/4 tsp. as a personal preference. This was very simple and very tasty - great served with warm tortilla chips!
