Directions for: The Bare Minimum Guacamole


2 ripe avocados, roughly cubed

1 Tbsp white onion, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

juice of 1/2 lime*

salt, to taste


1. In a bowl, combine avocados, onion, garlic, and lime juice. Using a large serving spoon, mash everything together until you achieve a desired consistency. Add salt to taste. Serve immediately.

2. *Some would call this blasphemous but you can substitute in lemon juice if you don’t have a lime. Since lemon is more acidic, add a bit of the juice at a time and taste it so that your guac doesn’t turn to lemonade.
