Easy Guacamole

When avocado is on sales, I like to buy some to make guacamole, milk shake, or add in salad.  Guacamole is very easy to make and I would prefer to make it myself rather than buy it at the store.  I think it is very versatile as you can also add red or color bell pepper, jelepeno (for a spicy kick), roasted garlic and white onion.  Basically just whatever to your fancy or just keep it plain.  It makes a great appetizer or party snack!

I served my guacamole with Sprout's multi-grain tortilla chips, loved that chips!  It is a great way to add shallot, cilantro and tomato for my girls as usually they are kind of picky with those.


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 1 lime
  • 1 Roma tomato, washed
  • 2 shallots
  • Some cilantro, washed
  • Sea/rock salt to taste
  • Pepper medley to taste


1.  Cut each avocado in half, take out the seed and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.  Put the flesh in a big bowl.  Lightly smash it.

2.  Chopped the shallots and put it in the same bowl.

3.  Chopped the Roma tomato and add it into the same bowl.

4. Chopped the cilantro into small pieces.  Add it into the same bowl.

5.  Cut the lime into half, juice the lime juice onto the mixture.

6.  Season to taste with sea/rock salt and pepper medley.  Stir with a spoon until blended.  Refrigerate before serving.  Serve with your favorite choice of tortilla chips.  Best eaten within 2 days.
