Have you ever wondered: How do I make guacamole? Well, let me share my easy recipe for guacamole with you! I call this easy guacamole recipe Mom’s Guacamole because my mom actually taught me how to make it as a child. Cooking or baking with your children is on of the most educational activities you can do at home!
We have a very large avocado tree in the front yard so my family and I are always picking fresh avocados. Guacamole is my favorite appetizer. It tastes amazing on tacos, sandwiches, and 7-layer dips!
Here are the simple ingredients and supplies you will need for my easy guacamole recipe. Note: it’s important to gather all of these items before you start. Making guacamole can be somewhat messy:) Let’s start with utensils. You will need a fork, knife, and a spoon. Pick at least two avocados that are soft and ripe. You will need salt, pepper, garlic salt, olive oil, and salsa.
How much of each ingredient will you need? My mom’s answer to that used to frustrate me, but as it turns out, she was right. Use as much of each ingredient as you like. If you love the taste of garlic, add two dashes. If you aren’t a fan of spicy food, then just add a tiny bit of salsa. I tend to add a dash of each dry ingredient and a spoonful of the olive oil and salsa. Tip: the olive oil helps prevent the leftover guacamole from turning brown. Smart! If you are still wondering How do I make guacamole with those ingredients? Well, I’ve got you covered! I’m going to break it down for you to make it as easy as can be so you feel like a pro!
Put a small amount of pressure on the avocado half that has the seed in it. That pressure will help the seed pop out. I’ve heard that saving the seed and placing it inside your leftover guacamole also prevents it from turning brown. Again, SMART!
I got my festive bowl at the dollar store:) It is so much fun and looks just like the ones they use in the restaurants.
Serve it with chips and simply refrigerate the leftovers. That’s if you actually have leftovers! I never do, and, if you use this guacamole recipe, neither will you!
Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Now you know how to make homemade guacamole like a pro!
