As much as I love avocados and guacamole, I had never attempted making it myself until last night.   I was just really in the mood for some homemade guac.   I loosely based my recipe on the one in Joy of Cooking.

I started with the avocado.  I had one large and one small Hass avocado, so that was what I used.

Pat had to help me with mashing it up – my hands were getting tired.

I then added:

  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 1.5 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp parsley

It was very fresh and very good!  Pat and I actually ended up eating the entire bowl for dinner, with some Tostitos scoops.
