Guacamole is a yummy addition to any Mexican meal. Until I came to Mexico I was convinced that I didn’t like avocados, now I love them! So yummy and full a good fats.
2 semi-soft large avocados (Fuertes are my favorite for their creaminess)
1/2 medium onion
1 medium tomato
About 8 sprigs of cilantro
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup of water
Cut the avocados and remove the pits. Scrap the avocado into a bowl and mash until soft. Mix in the water. Chop the onion, tomatoes and cilantro to the size desired. Add to bowl. Sprinkle the salt and garlic powder over the avocado mixture. Squeeze the juice of half a lime or lemon into the bowl. Gently stir everything together. Tip: To keep the guacamole from turning brown so quickly add the avocado pits to retain freshness and color. The lime juice helps with this as well.

HI Katie cates, I apologize for being late to comment on this lovely recipe, but I had major computer and then website issues, but all is back to normal! What can I say? Avocado is one of my favorite fruits. It is simply divine and there is nothing to really explain the lovely creaminess and fresh taste of it. Guack as we call it here is something we make lots of and like your lovely recipe, the simpler the better!

Yum! I love guacamole and could eat a whole bowl of it myself.

My daughter makes a great guacamole but she refuses to put tomato in. I love it with the tomato. It adds both color and flavor. Thanks for your recipe.
