1, 2, 3 Guacamole

Guacamole with lemonThis is the best guacamole ev”ah”. At least, we think so. It meets two very important criteria for us–it’s simple and delicious.

And you’ll notice we swapped a lemon for a lime. It was something Brance and I did for lack of ingredients one night, but we actually think it tastes WAY better this way.

Our friends and family tend to agree.

Let us know what you think of this guacamole with lemon!

Update: I originally mistyped the salt amount. I’ve since corrected it to 1/4 teaspoon.


  • 2 very ripe avocados
  • 1 ripe lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Cut the lemon in half and juice it into a small bowl, making sure to discard seeds. If you don’t have a citrus juicer, use a spoon to help press out the juice. (We don’t have a juicer and this works well!)
  2. Mash the avocados to a smooth consistency in a medium dish, preferably with a flat bottom (it makes them easier to mash).
  3. Stir in lemon juice and salt.
