Guacamole Recipe

Simple and simply delicious, our guacamole recipe is a pleasure

It’s amazing how many things go with guacamole - chips and breads, vegetables and fruits, cheeses and cold meats - and more.

We make so much of this, we had to come up with something simple. Careful to keep it covered tightly so that the delicate avocado keep their color.

3 avocados, ripe
8 ounces of salsa - we use mild 4 ounces of sour cream
4 ounces of mayonnaise
2 scallions, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 package of ranch salad dressing dry mix
1 teaspoon lime juice (from fruit only)

1 avocado, ripe - optional


Chop the onion into small pieces - use half for the recipe and half for a garnish.

Peel and pit the avocado. Mash them into oblivion and add in the rest of the ingredients.

Cover very tightly with film, pushing the film right down onto the surface of the avocado (no room for air.) Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Transfer to your serving dish, keep covered when not in use.

Use the rest of the chopped onion for a garnish.

Optional: For a garnish, we like to carefully peel and pit another avocado, slice it into nice looking pieces and decorate the serving dish. We also use chopped tomato.

If you have some avocado left over that you aren't going to use, be sure to leave that half unpeeled, and, keep the pit inside the fruit. Wrap it with film and refrigerate. The 'pit trick' will add a day or two to keep it nice!
