Fresh Guacamole

If you’ve ever looked at the label of store-bought guacamole, you’ll see all kinds of ingredients that you just really don’t need.

And if you see any ingredients you can’t actually pronounce or know what they mean, run the other way.

Making your own fresh guacamole recipe is simple and only requires 2 ingredients

1 fresh avocado and a tablespoon or two of salsa.

Nothing says Summer like a fresh guacamole recipe!


  • Of course to make things more natural, you can even make your own salsa. All it takes is a few simple ingredients like peppers, tomato, onions and cilantro.


    Use a small sharp knife to cut into the skin of the fresh guacamole. Make a few cuts across the skin so that it makes it easier to peel the skin off. Peel the skin off completely.

    When that’s done, carefully cut around the pit. The pit is actually quite soft on the outside, so it’s easy to slice through and end up with pieces of pit in your guacamole.

    Just make sure to remove any bits of pit before proceeding.

    Now all you need to do is mash the avocado. If your avocado isn’t quite soft enough, you can use a hand blender, but a fully ripe avocado is best. Add a couple tablespoons of salsa, just for a tiny bit of flavor and to make the end result creamier.

I agree, it is so simple to make guac without all the extra stuff they put in it at the store. Quite a bit cheaper, at least I think so. I don't usually add salsa, I just go with some onions, green bell peppers, pinch of salt, fresh cracked black pepper, garlic powder and some fresh or dry cilantro. So easy, so delicious!
