Easy Classic Guacamole Recipe

Best guacamole on the planet

Warm up your spoons, it’s guac time! Guacamole, like The Dude’s rug in The Big Lebowski, is the ingredient that ties together so many meals. It’s a dipper, topper, stuffer. It’s what makes scrambled eggs edible. It’s salad dressing if you ask me.

And if we were to go one step further, we could also say guacamole is the backbone to your sob fest after a rough day. The shoulder you blow your nose on. Or when the boyfriend’s out of town, guacamole is dinner. No use in pretending it’s not.

How to Make This Guacamole Recipe:

The best part about this guacamole recipe is all you need to do is mash all the ingredients together in a bowl. Taste the guacamole for flavor and add more lime juice, garlic, and/or sea salt to taste! Use it as a dip or as a topping for tacos, burrito bowls, enchiladas, or burritos.

If you’re ready for Cinco de Mayo or simply need a buddy to call a meal, guacamole is here for ya. If you or anyone you know could use a hand in vegetable prep, this cookbook makes an excellent sidekick!

    I love that someone wrote a cookbook just for teens, they more sophisticated than chicken tenders and PB&J but many of the adult recipes are still too sophisticated for their palate. If they’re excited about the recipes, they’re gonna be more excited about cooking.

    It is not possible to have too many guac recipes. I love the stuff. Love this recipe, and all the ways you suggest we can (and do) use guac at the table. And love, love, love that blue bowl the guac is in !!

      Yippy!! I just got the bowl from World Market! They had a couple of other colors and now I’m kicking myself for not picking up the other ones too! 🙂

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely
    overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!
