Equipment

  • Bowl
  • spoon
  • Fork
  • Knife

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 medium ripe avocados
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 3 to 4 Tbsp of minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp. of salt 5g
  • 1/8 tsp. of pepper pinch
  • 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder and or 2 to 3 cloves minced garlic 2g
  • 1 to 2 limes start with half of a lime, you can always add more later

Instructions

  • Cut up and mince the onion and fresh garlic and cilantro.
  • Wash the avocados. Cut them in half and then scoop out the pit. Save the pits! You can also put your knife in the pit and twist it out.
  • Cut slits in the avocado halves lengthwise and then widthwise. Scoop out the avocado chunks with a spoon and place them in a medium bowl.
  • Add the onion, garlic, and cilantro in with the avocado. Add the salt and pepper and garlic powder (for extra garlic flavor, if desired), and combine everything with a fork. If you like tomatoes in your guac, slice a tomato into cubes/chunks, and add it in.
  • Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the guacamole. Make sure the seeds don't get in there. You may want to squeeze it over a bowl first. The lime juice adds flavor along with helping to prevent it from turning brown. Mix with a fork.
  • Tip: Add the pits into the dip. The pits will also help keep it from turning brown.
  • Cover with plastic wrap so the wrap touches the top of the dip. Place in the fridge until ready to serve. Although it is best served right away. Enjoy!
