Guacamole is a staple "condiment" in my house when avocados are in season. We use this dip for breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- literally. Guacamole tops our scrambled eggs, spreads on our hamburgers, dips our chips, and dresses our salads. Thankfully, this is simple to make!

Begin by scooping the contents of two avocados into a bowl and mash with a fork. 


Dice 1/2 medium tomato and a handful of fresh cilantro.


Add the tomato, cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and juice from 1/2 of a lime to the mashed avocados.


Continue to mix the ingredients with the fork until it reaches the desired consistency.


This fresh, quick recipe is a great summer staple for our family. I hope you enjoy it just as much!
