This is the second guacamole recipe I’m posting on my site. I know what you’re probably thinking. How many guacamole recipes does one blog need, really? Turns out, you might need more than one recipe for guacamole.
The first recipe I shared, way back when this blog was still a baby, is still my go-to guacamole recipe if I’m ever making it for a crowd. It’s a solid recipe. But more often than not, I’m making guacamole for just me and my little partner in guacamole-eating crime, Luke.
It’s a lunch-time staple for Luke and me and this is the recipe I use when I’m wanting to keep it simple and whip it up quickly. You know, while a hungry two-year-old is barreling into the pantry saying, “I hungry, Mama!” Those days, I offer to let him help and he’s happy.
Some people might call this “guacamole verde” because there are no tomatoes. I call it simple guacamole. It’s heavy on the lime and cilantro, just the way I like it. Not too chunky, but not too smooth. No spiciness for the little ones to complain about. Just right.Print
This is a simple guacamole you will commit to memory after making it just once or twice. I promise it will quickly become your go-to guacamole recipe. It can easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate a crowd.
