A Favorite in Our House

Pin It Now!

Between the Mr. and I we can easily scarf down a bowl of homemade guac with 3/4 of a tortilla chip bag. This is what we ate last night while dinner was in the oven. So fresh and yummy.

My sister, Bree shared this recipe with us years ago and it's the only one I will make now.

Homemade Guacamole
3 ripened avocados
1 ripened tomato
lime juice
garlic salt grinder

Slice avocados in half lengthwise and remove pits. Scoop out the avocado into a bowl, very lightly mash. It's best with a little bit of chunk to it.

Dice a tomato and set aside.

Season the mashed avocado with garlic salt. We use a McCormick garlic salt grinder because it has more of a course salt. Splash in a little lime juice. Give it a quick stir.

This is the really important part. Taste test! Add more garlic salt or lime juice if necessary. Remember, the chips have salt on them so don't go overboard with the salt. Toss in the diced tomato and give it a gentle stir.

Serve with tortilla chips, homemade would be extra yummy.



  1. LOVE me some guacamole. That is like my staple at Chipotle. So good!

  2. I love guacamole! Have you tried the seasoning packet you can mix in with your avocado?

  3. it's a fave in our house too - we constantly have avocados in our house
