Oh guacamole how much I love you. We always have avocados in the house and this guac is a regular go to. We love Guacamole. It’s a staple in our home. We love dipping rice crackers, carrots, red peppers or cucumbers in it. Or eating with corn chips or in wraps as a sauce.
Avocados have been classified as the “most healthiest food in the world.” You will find all B vitamins (except B 12), vitamin C, healthy fats, fibre, folate, and much more. They have a small window when they are ripe. Keep an eye on my Instagram @WholeAndHealthyKitchen and @CookingwithFreshbox where I have made a video for you on knowing when your avocado is ripe and ready to eat (or throw in fridge :))
2 large Avocados
2 Roma Tomatoes, diced evenly and small
1/4 red onion, diced really small
1/2 – 1 Lime, Juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 small jalapeño, stemmed and seeded and finely diced (optional)
3 tbsp cilantro, minced (no stem ~ optional! but I love love love it and add even more than this!!)
- Slice avocado around the center, twist slightly and pull open. Take out the pit and mash avocados with a fork. Add to a small bowl.

- Use Juice of lime all over avocado/vegetables (taste and use more if needed)

I buy the avocados not in a bag as they are bigger and often have more avocado in them for a cheaper price. They are generally 3 for $5 and highly worth it. I also get some most weeks in my @FreshBox!
Quick Tips & Tools:
Fork, knife, cutting board, bowl
Make sure the avocado is ripe by taking the small part of the pit off the top and making sure it is green or light brown. The skin of the avocado should also be brown, not green. Also press your fingers around the avocado, if it is soft (but not squishy) its ready.
Also, once avocados are ripe, put them in fridge immediately to prolong their use.
Avocados go brown when exposed to oxygen for to long. So try to make this and eat this right away. It dos stay longer with the lime on it as the lime helps to prevent the oxidation.
