All you need to make this amazingly delicious quick guacamole recipe is 5 ingredients!
Avocados are so delicious in guacamole, aren’t they? And while I’m sure there are one million and one different ways to make guac, sometimes all I want to do is have a quick version that can be used for dinner or as a side for dipping chips and vegetables in, a guac that doesn’t take forever to make so that I can get to it faster.
Am I right? You want to enjoy your guac as soon as you can…so there’s two little tools I’m going to tell you about that make making smooth delicious guac a breeze every time. The first is this avocado slicer by oxo – it is such a cool little tool, it slices the avocados perfectly and then has this cool little contraption that pits the avocados, definitely worth the $10 of the tool alone (I don’t know about you, but getting out the pit of an avocado is the pits – lol). The second tool is an avocado masher. When I first heard of an avocado masher I just rolled my eyes. “Great, another useless kitchen tool I don’t need” I thought to myself, but then I was gifted one when I attended a conference I went to in Oregon (that’s also where I heard about the OXO avocado slicer and their produce keepers that I use all the time) and it seriously is such a cool tool that actually works when mashing guacamole.
Because really, when I make this recipe I usually have to double it because I’m making it for friends and family, or as a side to go with these steak fajita tacos or these 5 ingredient salsa chicken tacos, and don’t forget those margaritas!
But really, guacamole and chips are one of my all time faves. Creamy avocados mixed with some fresh ingredients like tomatoes, onions, cilantro and a zip from lime juice, all mixed together, YUM!
This recipe is just that – quick and easy and delicious, and with only five ingredients it fits the bill for this weeks’ Five Ingredient Friday.
