Creamy Guacamole Recipe

Creamy Guacamole

The soft texture and bland flavor of guacamole make this all-purpose accompaniment a hit even with young children.

What you'll need

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup salsa

Helpful Tip:

Once you've done the peeling and chopping, turn the preparation over to your kids--they'll take pleasure in mashing up the ripe avocados.


Yields approximately 2 cups

How to make it

  1. Peel and chop the avocados and place the pieces in a small mixing bowl. (Reserve one of the avocado pits.) Using a fork, mash the avocados until you have a creamy mixture. Stir in the fresh lime juice. Add the onion, garlic, pepper and salt, and mix well.
  2. If you'd like your guacamole to be mild, omit the salsa. Otherwise, add homemade or store-bought salsa to the avocado mixture to give the guacamole a bite. This is best served within an hour or so of making it, since it browns quickly. Put the avocado pit in the guacamole to slow this process.
