Guacamole

This 3-ingredient simple guacamole recipe is easy, delicious, and never fails to wow everyone who’s ever tasted it. Made with ripe avocados, salt, and lime juice, you’ll never use another guacamole recipe again.

Ingredients:

Avocados – Choose two avocados that are as perfectly ripe as you can find (see my section on selecting an avocado for ripeness, below).
Lime juice – I use only freshly squeezed lime juice, it’s key to getting the best flavor in the guacamole.
Sea salt – Just like fresh lime juice, using sea salt is also another key ingredient to this guacamole. It works and tastes the best when you use sea salt.

First, cut your avocados in half, lengthwise, and remove the pits. Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh and put it in a bowl.
Next, sprinkle cracked sea salt over the top of the avocado and then drizzle the lime juice over that.
Using a fork, mash the avocado together with the salt and lime juice to your desired consistency. If you like it a little lumpy, that’s fine if you like it smooth, also fine!
Taste the guacamole then add more lime juice or salt. Remember you can always add more ingredients, but you can’t take them away if you’ve over salted or juiced the guac.
Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping on anything and everything.

1 pound ground chicken or beef mince
