Hey Y’all!

{Recipe} Quick and Easy Guacamole

As someone who cooks every day, there are some foods I adore and want to eat all day, every day.  Avocados are on that list.  If I could be healthy with avocados, tomatoes, and cheese, that is all I would eat.  Since woman cannot live on avocados, tomatoes, and cheese alone, I have to eat other food.  Sigh…

Guacamole is one of my favorite snacks.  It’s easy to make and man, it’s just soooo good! Today I decided to not be selfish and share my favorite snack with y’all.  I must really love you!

There are very few ingredients in guacamole so you have no excuse to not make it because it is just that easy!

Guacamole Recipe

I only use 2 tools for this recipe.  My mortar and pestle plus a spatula.  That’s it!

Easy guacamole recipe

Peel, remove the seeds and chop up your avocados.  I use my mortar and pestle all the time! It comes in so handy when you need something all mashed up like avocados for guacamole. I like my guacamole chunky so I mash some and leave some of the chopped avocados intact.

Next, it to chop up the tomato and add it to the avocados.  It’s now time for the chopped garlic,


And…the chopped onion.

I really want to eat this now, but I know I have to mix with my spatula first.  I’m going to try to be patient.  It’s hard!

Easy guacamole recipe

It’s time to eat now.  Wahoo!!!!  Such excitement, joy, and happiness.  

Easy guacamole recipe

I’m going t0 grab a small bowl, tortilla chips, and head to the back porch, and eat to my heart’s content because I’m impatient and can’t wait for it to chill!  Let the guacamole chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours.  Garnish with cheddar cheese when served.

    You are the second person within a week to tell me how much they love their mortar and pestle (and before that, no one in my life had ever mentioned one, LOL) It does look like a useful tool for making guacamole.
    Thanks for sharing your awesome guacamole recipe at the #HomeMattersParty this week.

    Yum! This looks so delicious, and also super simple! I have never seen it made with a mortar before, so thanks for the new tip!

  • sarah 08/23/2017, 2:13 AM

    This is exactly how I make guac! My husband loves it with tortilla chips and a cold glass of beer. I’ve been kind of depressed because we’re not finding any avocados in the supermarkets these past few months.


    • Lynn 08/23/2017, 11:32 PM

      Oh no, Sarah! I hope you’ll be able to find some soon.

  • Luca 08/23/2017, 2:17 PM

    Looks so yummy!

    This looks quick to make when I have cravings for guac.

  • Sosi's mom 08/23/2017, 7:47 PM

    This recipe sounds perfect! Have you ever froze avocados?

    • Lynn 08/23/2017, 11:19 PM

      No, I haven’t. They never last long enough to get to that point. I eat them almost as soon as I get them! Hahahaha…do they last well in the freezer?

  • Amanda Middleton 08/23/2017, 8:34 PM

    Can I just say guac is my fave and you are seriously making me hungry!
