Simple And Quick Guacamole Recipe

by Alejandro Mole

This recipe will make enough guacamole for 2 individuals, but you could simply double or triple it.

So, what ingredients do you need:

1 avocado, 1 really small red onion, 1 lemon juice (you may squeeze a lemon or just purchase lemon juice in the shop), salt, black pepper,

along with a blender.

That's it.


1. This is what you need. Use a tiny onion or guacamole is going to be too strong. You may nevertheless add some later, just do not start with too much. Certainly you can work with a larger onion and chop it in two :). You can also use the usual white onion but I've found that red ones work better.

2. First peel the onion and cut it in a couple of big pieces so it fits in to the blender. Now place 2/3 of the onion you're going to utilize into the blender and keep the remaining 1/3 for later.

3. Now for the avocado. Initially cut the avocado in two. Don't cut the seed, just make an incision about the avocado. Then grab each half with a single hand and twist. One half should nicely separate from the seed.

4. Now take a spoon and take away the avocado meat from its skin.

5. Put the avocado in to the blender together with the onion.

6. Mix until you get a nice and even texture.

7. Now take the rest of the red onion (the 1/3 from the start) and cut it into little pieces making use of a knife. What is the point of this? I like the flavor of the onion to consistently merge into the guacamole - this can be accomplished by combining onion and avocado together in a blender. But I also like the little onion pieces in the guacamole. these pieces give better texture to the guacamole, make it a bit chunky and it appear a lot more home-made :). In actual fact - you may do the same with avocado. Combine 2/3 of it and just smash the remaining 1/3 into the guacamole with a fork. This way you are going to have a good tasting base together with some chunks.

8. Now take a nice guacamole bowl and place in the mixed avocado/onion from the blender. Add in chopped red onion, salt, pepper and lemon juice. How much lemon juice? This is dependent upon your taste. I often start off by adding little after which keep adding some more till you're happy. Taste your guacamole in between.

9. Now take a fork and mix your guacamole until the chopped red onions are evenly spread through the guacamole and lemon juice has disappeared in to the mixture making guacamole a little bit smoother and less dense.
