Easy Guacamole

BY John Romaniello TIMESeptember 18, 2014 PRINT

Is there anything better than guacamole? Don’t bother thinking about the question, because the answer is no, there is not.  As far as dips go, guac is the bees knees: it’s delish, full of healthy fat, and looks awesome in a stone bowl.

Ugly, but awesome.

Plus, it’s Mexican; so serving it instantly makes you a chef skilled at international cuisine.

Guac can be hard to make, but this version is not. It’s 5 ingredients and the prep time is 3 minutes.

What you need

  • Two avocados
  • ¼-1/2 cup Fresh packed store bought salsa (just tomatoes, onions, herbs and sometimes jalapenos)
  • Juice of 1 small lime
  • Chopped cilantro (I keep a container of chopped cilantro in the fridge at all times as a time saver. I put that s*** on everything and don’t enjoy the hassle of chopping it at every single meal.)
  • Sea salt to taste

What you gotta do:

  • Mash, mix and eat. Seriously.
  • Make sure you put the pit in the bowl if you don’t intend to eat it right away; it helps keep the avocado from browning, as does a healthy squirt of lemon or lime juice.
