Level Of Difficulty: You absolutely can't screw this up, it's so easy
Pots/Pans Used: NADA
lemon juice, to taste
salt, to taste
Next time you have a ripe avocado lying around and you don't know what to do with it, smash it up and make some guacamole!!! If you're going to a party and need to bring something and you're not the greatest cook in the world, this recipe is for you. You basically can't go wrong with guacamole. It's so simple I almost didn't post it, but then I thought, "There has to be someone who's never tried making guacamole". Don't be intimidated by the avocado! Don't go buy a tub of guac! Forget the tomato or fancy peppers and seasonings! All you need are these three ingredients to make your guacamole out of this world...
Start by cutting the avocado up into slices and then smashing it down until the texture meets your liking. Mix in salt and lemon juice to taste and serve with sliced veggies or chips. (One avocado will serve about two people)
P.S. Check out this awesome avocado slicer I picked up at Target. Also on a side note, avocados are really great in desserts. I've had chocolate mousse made from avocado and down the line I'll be posting my yummy avocado fudge recipe. I promise it tastes better than it sounds ;)
