Homemade guacamole. Is there anything quite as satisfying? I’m not sure. Something about the creamy avocado, the burst of flavor from the tomatoes, and the simple spices to give a little kick… it’s just so satisfying.
This easy homemade guacamole recipe is great for dips, tacos, fajitas, or even on a sandwich. Be sure to use the freshest ingredients possible. Locally grown is always best for nutrition and the environment. But let’s be honest, sometimes you want some homemade guacamole in the middle of winter. That’s when I’m thankful for my local health food store where I can buy organic ingredients that are free from pesticides and GMOs.
