3-Ingredient Guacamole

Ever need an easy dip to go with some nice, salty tortilla chips? I love how easy it is to throw together a quick guacamole - and I love how quickly it disappears! And - it's three quicks steps to snacking:

2 Hass avocados
1-2 tsp. salt
juice of 2 lemons (or limes) - not lemons on hand, use 2-3 tsp. lemon juice concentrate (undiluted)

Slice avocados in half, remove pit and scoop out the shell. Cut the meat of the avocado into quarters, drizzle with lemon juice. This keeps the avocado from turning brown and adds flavor. Mash the avocado well, adding salt to taste. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers for up to 48 hours.

Yields = 4-6 servings


  1. Yum, yum, yum! I never thought of making it without chopped tomato and onion. Your way sounds very refreshing.
