It’s May 1st, and after so much rain, we’re finally enjoying summer-like weather here in CA.  The weather was so beautiful this past weekend that I spent 3 hours working in my garden.  I harvested my last load of fava beans, trimmed my overgrown herb plants, and planted my tomatoes, strawberries, bell peppers, and jalapenos.

It feels really good to get my summer garden planted, and I actually got a bit of a tan in the process. 🙂

My garden is prepped and ready for summer, and I’m prepped and ready for Cinco de Mayo!  I have two Mexican recipes for you this week, including this 5-Minute Homemade Guacamole.

Guacamole is something that I make at least once or twice a week.  Most of the time I make this basic full-proof recipe at my husband’s request, or like to change things up my street corn black bean or mango tomatillo versions.

You may be wondering why I’m just now getting around to posting a classic guacamole recipe if I make it so often?  I did post one years ago when I first started this blog, but the photos were awful and the whole post needed revamping.

I decided a fresh, new post was warranted for my all-time favorite dip.

There are a lot of different interpretations of classic guacamole, including using a mortar and pestle to mash the avocado until perfectly smooth.  While I’ve eaten it that way too, my favorite way to enjoy it is when it’s rustic and chunky like this.

This 5-Minute Homemade Guacamole is so easy to make and will become your new go-to recipe whether you’re eating it with chips, serving it with tacos or fajitas, or just eating with a spoon.

Recipe Notes:

  1.  If you like your avocado smooth, simply mash it with a fork until it reaches the desired consistency.
  2. Guacamole is best served immediately to prevent oxidation, but if you’d like to make it a few hours ahead, reserve the avocado pits and nestle them into the guacamole and cover tightly with plastic wrap.
