{Easy Squeezy} Guacamole

I just started liking guacamole in the last few months. I think the reason why is that I've almost always had store bought guacamole, which can be absolutely disgusting.  I was reading the ingredient label on a package of guacamole made by one of our local grocers produce department. There was about 30 ingredients, a lot of which were junk.  I could taste all the junk, and that's why I even looked at the ingredients. 

Anyhow, enough of my blabbing, I am a guacamole snob!

So after years of not being too fond of avocados and thus, guacamole, I've come out of this funk after making my own homemade version that is fresh and tasty (oh, and easy squeezy)!

What I love about this recipe is it is simple, 6 ingredients, and it's really fast!  The best part is the taste (it better be, right?), I absolutely love the lime juice, it give it the perfect kick that keeps me coming back for more.    

We love this on tacos, taco salad, fajitas, burritos, or simply with tortilla chips.  Stay tuned this week for my favorite fajita seasoning recipe and chicken fajita recipe in honor of Cinco de Mayo!   

{Easy Squeezy} Guacamole


2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted
½ fresh lime, juiced (more to taste, if desired)
⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon onion powder
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more to taste) or ⅛ teaspoon taco seasoning
⅛ teaspoon garlic salt


In a small bowl add avocados and mash with a fork to the desired consistency. I like my guacamole pretty smooth.

Add juice from half a lime, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic salt. Mix to incorporate.

Serve with tortilla chips, or have on tacos, taco salad, fajitas, or in 7-layer bean dip, etc.
