- 2 hass avocados
- 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1/4 small, red onion, diced
- 2 1/2 tsp lime juice
- 2 1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp cumin
- Cut the avocados in half.
- Remove the pits and cut the avocado into square sections, then scoop from peel into the bowl. (You really don’t need any fancy avocado cutters for this. You can get the pit out by prying it out with a butter knife, and cut it with a butter knife too. That way you don’t go through the peel and cut yourself. Scoop out the meat of the avocado with a spoon or the butter knife. To tell if an avocado is ripe, it should be slightly squishy, but not so squishy that your fingers leave dents. There shouldn’t be much resistance at all when cutting the avocado in half. If the avocado is ripe, the pit should come out easily.)
- Add remaining ingredients to the avocado and mix.
- Mash the avocado with a fork, spoon, or potato masher. (Mash to your preference. I like my guac a little chunky!)
- Add salt, pepper, and any other spices to your preference! Every tastebud is different.
(Healthy Tip: the appropriate serving of an avocado for one person at one meal is 1/3 of an avocado. Keep this in mind when consuming the guac, I have to think about this to stop from eating the whole thing!…and licking the spoon…)
