5 Minute Guacamole

Prep Time 5 mins

  • 3 ripe avocados [dark & soft to touch}
  • 1/2 ripe tomato chopped and drained
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 small clove garlic finely minced
  • S&P
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion [optional]
  • dash hot sauce [optional]
  • fresh cilantro chopped [optional]


  • Slice avocados in 1/2. Remove pit by imbedding knife blade in it, give it a twist and it should pop right out. Save one pit to use to keep guac from turning brown. Scoop out avocado meat with a spoon, it should come neatly away from the shell if the avocado is perfectly ripe. Put avocado in a bowl and gently mash with fork. I like mine a little chunky so I use a light touch here, and incorporate the rest of ingredients.
