Ideas for Avocado: Guacamole

Holy Guacamole!  It is about time I put up a guacamole recipe.  This one comes from my mom, who is just as obsessed with avocados as I am.

This recipe definitely beats any store bought guacamole. It surprises me to see some dips at the store labeled as “avocado dip” or “guacamole” when they don’t even have any avocado it it! There are some recipes out there that add sour cream or yogurt, but I prefer not to add any of these and let the avocado showcase itself!  This guacamole was made with ingredients from the garden and the farmers market.

    Love avocados too. I ate one with salsa poured on it for my side with dinner tonight.

    I use the same guacamole recipe but usually blanch and skin the tomatoes. I usually use Roma tomatoes too.

      Hey Mike! Glad you are crazy about avocados too!
      Just curious, why do you skin the tomatoes? Does that make the texture better? I skin them when I’m cooking them in a sauce but never thought to do it for guacamole.

    Definitely sea salt. You can also use cherry or grape tomatoes as an alternate. This is a favorite recipe for the family and disappears quickly. Glad to see it on your blog.
