Guacamole: a Basic Recipe

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by QueenBeesKitchen

I was asked to make guacamole for a party a few years ago, and at that time I had never made it before. So needless to say, like most people, I scoured the internet looking for recipes. I never really found “one” recipe that looked quite right so instead I decided to make up my own. Now this is a very basic, easy guacamole recipe, and with good reason: when you have fresh and flavorful ingredients, sometimes less is more, and you should just let what Mother Nature gives you shine…

I cut the recipe in half but otherwise I followed the instructions. Delicious and so easy. I served this with some chips and used on recipe#53840#53840. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game 2013.
