Simple Guacamole

By Marcella Kriebel | January 27, 2016
This guacamole is simple, easy and open to interpretation. My culinary approach relies on taste, rather than strict measurements and I encourage my readers to think of each recipe as a framework of flavors. If you want to add anything according to your taste or cooking style this recipe allows you to build upon a solid foundation of flavors.


  • 3 Ripe Avocados
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup white onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Small handful cilantro, chopped
  • Salt to taste


Slice avocados and spoon into bowl, add lime juice, mash to desired consistency.  Combine all ingredients with avocado, stir.  

Guac is best if served fresh!
