Homemade Guacamole. Simple. Simple. Simple. Seven ingredients and so amazing. Cinco de Mayo will be here sooner than you think.
Homemade Guacamole is packed with flavor and goodness.
This Homemade Guacamole is yummy anytime. Eat it with chips, on sandwiches or toast, or alone. It takes me less than 20 minutes to make this dip. If you don’t eat it all, you can keep it a day or two in the refrigerator. If you put the seed in the middle of the bowl, it slows the oxidation process and it won’t get brown so easily. To store, cover with plastic wrap. putting the wrap directly on top of the dip. But, really. You’re going to eat it all, aren’t you?
You don’t have to cook anything. Cut, mix, eat. Simple. I love it. And I always get compliments on this guacamole dip when I serve it to friends. Did you know September 16 is National Guacamole Day?
