The primary reason I started this blog was to keep track of my own personal menus and recipes.  While there are many variations of guacamole, this is my standard recipe I almost always fall back on.  When avocados are on sale I stock up.  I love them on sandwiches and in salads {even on their own}, but as they start to over-ripen, I always use the leftovers for guacamole. 

So this isn't so much a recipe as a guideline, at least for myself.  If avocados are pricey, you can stretch the spread by adding some mayo or cottage cheese.  If you are a cilantro afficionado, mince some up to add to the dip.

Quantities are to your taste.  I have just five ingredients I generally use.  Adjust them to suit your tastes.


prepared salsa
finely minced sweet onion
freshly-squeezed lime juice

Mash the avocados to your liking (very smooth or chunky).  Add other ingredients, stir to combine. 

For storing, squeeze additional lime juice to avoid dip turning brown.
