There are lots of guacamole recipes out there, but here’s a basic one that never fails me. It’s so simple to make. You need just garlic, lemon juice, and avocados.
Avocados are a great way to get a boost of healthy fat and nutrients in one beautiful green package. You’ll get a dose of things like potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid, along with the healthy fat that will help your body to absorb the fat-soluble nutrients in this fruit. And it tastes great with these nacho cheese chips.
Here are some things you can add to this recipe when the mood (or ingredient) strikes you:
- chopped tomato
- mayonnaise (makes it creamier)
- minced chili peppers or jalapeño
- lime juice instead of lemon juice
