The Perfect Guacamole


Avocado’s are staples in my home and they go in almost everything, even our shakes.  Avocado’s are incredibly nutritious and are heart healthy. Since they have a somewhat bland flavor and are extremely creamy they are great to add to sauces, salad dressings, shakes and just alone.  My husband eats so many avocados that I fear he may turn green (LOL). I can promise you there will be many recipes within my blog that have avocado’s.

*Haas avocados – 5 soft to the touch but not too mushy
*Large cherry tomatoes – 6, small dice
*Green onions – 5, small chop
*Garlic cloves – 3, minced
*Jalapeno – 1, small dice
*Cilantro – 1/3 cup chopped
*Lime – 1/2 lime juiced
*Salt – 1/2 tablespoon
*Pepper – 1/4 tablespoon

  • Remove the flesh of the avocados and place in a medium size bowl. Mash the avocado to the texture that you want. I like my avocado somewhat chunky, but mainly creamy.
  • Dice the rest of the ingredients and place in the bowl along with the salt, pepper and lime juice and stir everything together.
  • Taste it and see if it needs anything additional.

I served it with the blur tortillas that I got from Whole Foods by the company 365. They are absolutely delicious. My husband also likes to add this to any of his proteins. Today he had it with the baked chicken I made him for lunch.
