Super Easy Guacamolé

My favorite color is green and every time I make guacamole (or pesto for that matter), I get so happy! I came across this recipe when I worked at a local natural foods store, but it's been tailored to fit my taste buds! The original had way too much cilantro and onion for me. I like the avocados to stand out in my guacamole.

This recipe is definitely one of my favorites. Not only is it easy, it's super delicious! It doesn't make very much, maybe about 3 cups. If you're planning on preparing this for a party, I would double or even triple the recipe to meet your needs.

  • 3 large avocados
  • The juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 medium sized bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, juice and seeds removed, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 - 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place all the ingredients in your food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.

If you like a chunkier guacamole, you can mash the avocados and chop the rest of the ingredients finely and just mix well with a fork. Whichever you prefer, but I like mine smooth!

Enjoy and Happy Eating!


  1. I love the color green too. This guacamole has all of my favorite things in it. Yum!

  2. Looks beautiful!! LOVE guac (as hubs calls it!) Sooo many things you can put it on, veggie burgers, wraps, falafel, or eat it with a fork like my dd, lol!!

  3. Thanks Lara! My favorite is definitely with chips or in a burrito wrap!

  4. I seriously could eat guac every day. When I'm too lazy to mix it up, I just put avocado slices on everything. Even non-vegans should eat avocados; so healthy. Thanx for sharing your recipe!

  5. Amazingly easy! I just stumbled upon your blog through a google search and am glad I did! :)
