Every month I get together with some old girlfriends, everybody brings food and we just catch up.  I always ask what they want me to bring…”I have a culinary degree remember, I can make anything.”  Nope, every time its the same, “Bring your famous guacamole!”  Easy for me, and I don’t know how famous it is, its rather basic.  But it is delicious, and fresh, and easy, and even healthy (not counting the chips).


Recipe: Guacamole


  • 3 ripe avocados (chopped)
  • 1/2 lime juice
  • 8 cherry tomatoes chopped (or any tomato)
  • 1/4 red onion small dice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 T cilantro minced
  • 1/2 jalapeno minced
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 8 cranks fresh black pepper


  1. Cut your avocados in half lengthwise around the pit, hit the pit with your knife to pull it out and pop it off your knife into the garbage. Make a grid of cuts in the avocado and scoop the flesh out with a spoon. Add the lime juice next so the avocado won’t brown.
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix to combine. The avocado will mash a bit as you combine the ingredients but leave it as chunky as you like it.
