There’s something happening with guacamole these days.
People are junking it up with this and that (beans, tomatoes, tequila?) and causing it to lose it roots. In my opinion, guacamole should be simple! Five ingredients or less with an emphasis on creamy, ripe avocados and limes. There’s no need for all that fancy funky stuff. Get back in the game, people. This doesn’t need to be difficult.
This recipe is for the guacamole I’ve been making for years and years. It’s the guacamole mom made for my eighteenth birthday party when we all sat around my family’s kitchen table, eating red velvet cake and guessing what we would be doing in five years, the guacamole I made for my college roommate and I during numerous Lifetime movies and the guacamole I continue to make for each and every function I attend.
It’s simple, really. And so, so, so good.
And I’m blogging about this today because I figure every girl needs a good guac recipe. It comes in handy for those hot summer nights when the cute boy from the beach asks you over for dinner and the only thing you can think of is if your favorite sundress is clean.
I’m telling you—you can go FAR in this world with a good guacamole recipe.
It’s okay. You’ll thank me later. I promise.
