Lazy Chef Recipes: Guacamole


2 ripe avocados*

2 Roma tomatoes

1 small onion, peeled and quartered

1 small jalapeño, seeded and quartered**

Juice from half a lime***

1 garlic clove, peeled

1 tsp salt

  • Ripe avocados are soft. If the avocados at your grocery store are hard, you can ripen them at home by putting them in a paper bag on your kitchen counter for a day or two
  • I like mild guacamole, so I actually don’t add the jalapeño.
  • You can use 1-2 tablespoons of bottled lime juice instead of a fresh lime
  1. Put the ingredients into your food processor in this order: garlic, onion, jalapeño, tomato, salt, and lime juice. After adding each ingredient, pulse the food processor a few times.
  2. Cut the avocado: insert a knife into the skin near the top and draw a line down to the bottom and then up the other side. Be careful not to insert the knife too deeply or you’ll hit the pit in the middle.
  3. Now pull the avocado apart into two halves. Remove the pit with a spoon and throw it away.
  4. Using the spoon, scoop out the flesh of the avocado and add it to the food processor. Pulse the food processor a few times, until the guacamole is as smooth as you want it.

Servings: 1-12, depending on how much guacamole you eat at one time…
