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.
