Ingredients for Homemade Guacamole
You will, of course need about 5 avocados. You’ll want to be sure they are nice and ripe when you buy them. The way I check for this is press my thumb lightly on the skin. If it’s hard, it’s not ripe enough. If it’s mushy, it’s no good. If it gives just a little bit then it’s perfect.
Other than the avocados, you’ll need a fresh lemon, some garlic cloves, and salt. That’s all it takes to make some amazing, fresh homemade guacamole! My kids prefer simple guacamole like this one. This is why I always make my homemade guacamole with no tomatoes or onions.
How Can I Serve Homemade Guacamole
The obvious answer to this question is with chips. But there are so many other ways you can use this simple homemade guacamole recipe. We love to use it as a spread on sandwiches, especially breakfast sandwiches, like avocado toast.
We also love using it on chicken wraps, tacos, burritos, and topping our salsa chicken tacos with it. The possibilities are endless. I especially love the fact that it’s a great healthy option for my kids!
