Hi all & Happy Friday! I have never posted a recipe before, which just seems crazy because cooking is one of my favorite things to do! Now that I’m back home & finally back into my dream kitchen I can go back to cooking more normal things instead of just chicken & rice for every meal.
Now that it’s getting warm one of my favorite snacks to eat in the summer is guacamole, not only because the produce is finally getting into season, but it’s super easy to make! I originally found the idea for this recipe on Pinterest [I would love to give credit where it’s due but I can’t find the recipe anymore] I have changed the recipe a bit however, but the idea to add greek yogurt in the recipe was definitely the Pinterest users idea & I’m sorry I can’t give you credit!
Here is a list of the ingredients that I use for this guacamole recipe:
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1/2 cup diced tomato
- 2 tsp. chili powder’
- 1tsp. lemon or lime juice (I didn’t have any lime juice & helps with reducing browning)
- salt & pepper to taste
This recipe is super fast, it takes about 15 minutes total (unless your a super fast chopper!)
First, Cut the avocado, remove the pit, & mash the avocado in the bowl until semi-creamy I like a little bit of avocado chunks in my guac.
Then, add in the greek yogurt & mix well, add in your diced tomato & onions as well as the cilantro.
Now I didn’t state an amount for cilantro because I think its all based on personal taste. I add a lot of cilantro, about 2-3 bunches because I love the peppery taste that it adds. However, if you don’t enjoy the taste as much obviously add in less!
After everything is added in, now it’s time to add the spices! Add in the chili pepper & lemon juice (I didn’t have lime juice at home so obviously if you have lime juice use that instead) & then salt & pepper to taste!
Finally your guacamole is ready & your ready to share it with your fam & friends (or keep it to yourself, there’s no shame in that)!
Thanks for stopping by! If you try out the recipe I would love to hear how it goes!
