How to Make Guacamole with One Avocado
To make this recipe you need a ripe Haas avocado, diced tomato, diced onion, salt and lemon juice.
If you like a little heat, add a smidgeon of red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper or chopped jalapeno. If you happen to have cilantro on hand, then, by all means, add that too!
The critical measurements are lemon juice and salt. Use about 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and ⅛ of a teaspoon of salt in total.
Although there are measurements below, add tomatoes and onion to taste. That is, a little extra tomato never hurt anybody!
Mash the avocado, mix everything together and enjoy! Or, scoop it back into the avocado skin for a fun presentation.
Alternatively, cut the avocado in half, scrape the insides up and mix everything right in the avocado! You'll have to cut this recipe in half, but there will be no bowl to clean!
There's nothing better than homemade guacamole. 🙂 See the full batch recipe and video here ==> Simple Guacamole Dip Recipe.
