3 Ingredient Guacamole

We had some gorgeous weather here in the Pacific Northwest last weekend. Did you feel it? We spent most of the weekend exploring, per usual, but coming home tired and sun-kissed left me with a deep craving for summer. Since I can’t control the weather, I decided to do the next best thing… make guacamole.

For the longest time I thought I didn’t like guacamole. I actually refused to eat anything with avocados at all. It wasn’t until my mom made some homemade guacamole that I fell in love and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I am still pretty picky about my guacamole (I only like my moms recipe and Chipotle’s), but I love it so much that I could eat it by the spoonful.

Now I am in no way a chef or recipe creator; I don’t use measurements and have a hard time creating the same dish twice. I do like to cook though and I really like this guac. So, in the spirit of spring and trying new things, I give you my 3 ingredient guacamole.

What you need:

3-4 Ripe Avocados
1 Bunch of Cilantro
1 Lime

What to do:
  1. Cut open all avocados and and remove the pit. You can find some tips on picking and handling avocados here.
  2. Using a fork or potato masher, mash up the avocados in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Finely chop cilantro and add to bowl. I personally love a lot of cilantro, so you can adjust this to taste.
  4. Add the juice of 1 lime to the bowl and combine.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste and your done!

Some bonus advice from the original creator (a.k.a. my mom): “If you want to spice it up a bit, add in some crushed red pepper flakes. No need to get all crazy and cut up a jalapeno.”
