    Chef #232404's Note:

    I was fussing with all kinds of fancy guacamole recipes when I learned how to make this recipe for the world's easiest guacamole from my California girlfriend who grew up on the stuff. She saw me dealing with cookbooks and cracked up. Most of the Californian's I met used this recipe--the perfectionists just made their own salsa. Sorry you're on your own for salsa.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 ripe avocados
    • 4 tablespoons good quality pre-made salsa
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel and mash avocados.
    2. 2
      Stir in salsa. The guacamole should be green with hints of the red from the salsa about a tablespoon per avocado--the salsa shouldn't overpower the guacamole. (In California, fresh homestyle salsa was easy to find--now that we live out of state, I use mild Pace Picante).
    3. 3
      Add a few shakes of garlic salt (the garlic should be evident without being overpowering--I taste as I go).
    4. 4
      Mix together and serve. Should be prepared as close to serving as possible. Guacamole will turn brown and separate if made too far ahead of time.
    5. 5
      COOL TIP: To keep Guacamole fresh and avoid browning, place avocado pit in the bowl until ready to serve! Use as a dip with tortilla chips. Spoon generously on burritos (a great way to use leftover roast beef, pork or chicken). We love it on cheese omelettes as well. My kids pile it on top of quesadillas. I read once that Avocados are the most nutrition dense food on the planet. They are rich in mono-saturated fat (the good kind that breaks down cholesterol) as well as vitamin E--ENJOY!

      I'm a California girl, and this is how we make guacamole! It's tasty and easy! You can add a little lemon juice to this - a quick squeeze adds a bit of brightness to the flavor and further prevents it from turning brown.

      I've been making this kind of guacamole for years and always get compliments on it. I always add a little bottled lime juice (about a tbsp) to help prevent the avacado from turning brown. Like Bizzy-Bee says with the lemon juice, it also brightens the flavour. Yummy!

      This was yummy and easy!!! I didnt have garlic salt so I used garlic powder and some regular salt. Also, I didnt have 2 avocados, so I just halved the recipe. It worked out great!
