For all the recipe experimentation I do, there are a few foods where I am a bit of a purist, and guacamole is one of them. It’s not that I don’t love to try different variations, but I always come back to my tried and true, my basic guacamole recipe. There’s no bacon, grilled anything, no extra steps, it would seem like a boring guacamole recipe to any “foodie” magazine, but this is my favorite way to enjoy guacamole.

Given the number of times my sister has called me asking what I put in my guacamole, I think there might be more of us out there, just looking for a good, basic guacamole recipe. The kind that sits, all happy and green with the good fats, next to the salsa waiting for chips, veggies, or just a spoon to put some on a plate. When I have guacamole made up, I like to enjoy some with my eggs, or on salads or sandwiches as well as all the “traditional” ways.

Before we get to the recipe, I’m going to share my secret for keeping your guacamole nice and green and preventing oxidization. Leave 1-2 avocado pits in the bowl! They’re easy to avoid, and they keep your guacamole bowl from turning brown. After the party, if you have leftovers, or if there is no party and you’re just making a batch for yourself, press plastic wrap against the top of the guacamole so there’s no air circulating around the guacamole. I’ve had a batch stay green 3 days that way… we’ve never had a batch last any longer. In fact, the Godfather and I basically split the bowl you see in the pictures for lunch. Enjoy!

      Oh! That is a good addition… may I add it in the recipe notes as an optional addition? I like a bit of garlic in guacamole too.
