Well, its march in Salt Lake City and I feel like summer is officially here!! Well, maybe not officially, but it sure has been warm! Nothing says summertime like guacamole!
I had never made guacamole from scratch before, I have always just bought the overpriced pre-made stuff from the store. So imagine how delighted I was when I learned how easy and inexpensive it is to make! And did I mention, DELICIOUS?!

3 avocados
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup diced cilantro (stems and all)
2 roma tomatoes, diced (optional)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
A pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice & salt. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and stir to incorporate everything. Refrigerate for an hour before serving for the best flavor, or inhale immediately.


Now, when you store your guacamole in the fridge you do not want it to turn brown. I suggest covering it with plastic wrap and then smashing it down tight around the guacamole so no air can get in.

  1. You can also put the a pit or two from the avacados in the guac and it will keep it from getting brown. I got a Mexican Veggie Pack from Bountiful Baskets that has avacados, tomatoes, cilantro, limes so I am planning on making guac as soon as my avacados are ripe.
