Hello Readers!

I’m Lauren from Lauren’s Latest and I’ve got an easy, breezy, no-cook recipe to share with you all today: Guacamole. And not just any guacamole, my super delicious Garlic Guacamole.

I love Guacamole. I could eat it all day everyday, but only when it is made correctly. And by correctly, I mean how I like it. My husband doesn’t like it how I like it, so whenever he’s gone, I eat wonderfully fresh and garlicky guacamole…by the bowl full. With no shame. I may share it with my 2 1/2 year old daughter {cause she got my garlic-loving genes} but for the most part, I do not share. Again, with no shame.

Ok, so here are the basic ingredients of ‘average joe guacamole’ that you will absolutely need:
-ripe avocados (slightly soft and dark brown–not hard and green)
-fresh lime juice (or lemon juice)
-salt
-pepper

These are the variational ingredients that you can use or not use to make it how you like it:
-cilantro
-jalapenos
-garlic
-hot sauce
-red onion
-tomatoes

I’ve tried a lot of different ways, but today, I’m sharing with you my favorite. If you don’t like garlic, switch it out for something you would like. Its super simple and requires absolutely NO cooking. 5 minutes of chopping and mashing and voila! Mexican heaven in your mouth. Hope you give this one a try! It’s simply delightful! Happy Monday!

Guacamole

yield: 4 servings, but probably just 1 for me

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe Haas avocados
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced (I use a pretty big one)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 small roma tomato, diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped (I use it when I have it and when I’m feeling peppy)

Directions:
Open ripe avocados, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Squeeze lime juice over avocados and mash slightly. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve! I find it is best when you let the guacamole sit in the fridge 20-30 minutes to let the garlic work its magic…I usually can’t wait that long.
