"This is certainly one of the easiest guacamole recipes I have ever encountered. As a guacamole connoisseur, I was highly skeptical. After learning that one of the more famous Mexican restaurants in northern New Mexico uses a similar recipe, I decided to give it a try. The taste was amazing!" — dthomsen

2 (6 ounce)
avocados, pitted peeled and mashed
coarse garlic salt
Two ingredients are all that's necessary when one of them is a good, buttery avocado. Well, maybe three...I added a few drops of lime juice. Another tip for keeping the guacamole brightly colored if making ahead of time - press Saran Wrap directly against the avocado mixture to keep air from reaching the surface.
Might be authentic, but my family missed the other ingredients we usually add.
A true guacamole connoisseur knows the less you add to guacamole, the better it is. If I have it, I'll add a good sweet onion and some finely chopped tomatoes. Avocado, salt and garlic, that's all you need.
Definitely easy and very tasty! My husband isn't a huge fan of cilantro so I thought I'd give this a try. I didn't have garlic salt, so I used sea salt and added some minced garlic. I also added a bit of fresh lime juice. To me guacamole needs a bit of cumin so I added a little over a 1/4 tsp. as a personal preference. This was very simple and very tasty - great served with warm tortilla chips!
This was so good and was gone in about 5 minutes. The only addition I made was a squirt of lime juice and some diced tomatoes. Served with chips and made it along with the pico de gallo from "pico de gallo chicken quesadillas" by Tony Cortez from this site.
I was a little skeptical b/c it was so simple, but it was so, so good! I used a bit of minced garlic and coarse kosher salt. Yummy!
This is how I always make my guacamole and I didn't even know there was a recipe out there for it! I know this may sound gross to some people but every now and then I'll add a little bit of cream cheese to make it even creamier. But that's just me, I'm weird anyway. :)
I'm a little sheepish that this is all it takes. A little lime adds flavor; minced tomato, color; minced onion, crunch. Guacamole solved!
