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 to 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

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!
