Simple Guacamole Recipe — It’s been a few weeks since super bowl weekend, but I couldn’t resist sharing this yummy guac I made for game day. It’s ah-maze-ing, you guys! That weekend, I was looking for a new recipe to try since I had made so many versions in the past, but none had stuck – that is until this deliciousness entered my world! Psst…I’ve already made it a few more times since that weekend, and I just love it more each time I have it! But hey – it’s good for ya! Avocados are loaded with heart-healthy fatty acids and antioxidants (along with many other health benefits!), making them the perfect little nutritious fruit to eat again and again.
Delicious + Good For You = 💚
On my search for a new recipe, I stumbled upon this great one by Downshiftology. You can grab her recipe here! Below, you’ll find my version of the recipe. I made a couple of ingredient swaps. I used fresh parsley instead of cilantro (I’m not the biggest cilantro fan) and sweet vidalia onion instead of yellow onion (I was looking for less sharpness in flavour). Happy eating, my friends! xx, Amanda
what’s in it
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1/4 of a large vidalia onion, diced
- 2 roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
how to make it
Scoop avocado into a medium-size bowl and mash to the smoothness of your choice. Add in onion, tomato, jalapeno, garlic, parsley, lime juice, salt, and stir together. This guac is delicious on toast, on a sandwich, or with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
a tip for storing it
To keep your guacamole fresh and green, store it for a few days by placing it in an airtight container, flattening the surface, adding a layer of plastic wrap directly to the surface, and refrigerating.
