Simplified Guacamole

If there happens to be avocados sitting on the counter and Lauren spots them then I hear a repetitive chant of Mole-ees, Mole-ees, Mole-ees! The girl loves her guacamole! I started making this for her when she was about a year old. I simplified the recipe for 2 reasons- 1) to make it easy and quick to make 2) so that it would be pleasing to her young palate! I had to omit any jalapino peppers, because she suffered with pretty intense reflux.

Now when I make guacamole, I have to either hide part of it for myself, eat as quickly as is humanly possible or resign myself to not getting a whole lot!

Lauren's Guacamole

1 large avacado

1 roma tomato chopped or 1 med. tomato peeled, seeded and chopped

1/8 cup finely chopped onion (if I'm in a hurry I omit this)

1 Tablespoon lime juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 clove garlic minced

Remove the pulp of the avacado and place in bowl. With a fork mash it up. Add lime juice and continue mashing the avacado till it is somewhat smooth. Stir in tomatoes, onion, salt and garlic. Sometimes I add water if the consistency is too thick.

See, I told you it was good! And look she has stolen the serving bowl! It was all I could do to get my fair share! :)


  1. Yep love me some guac!

    And my little one loves it too!
    She's a cutey!

  2. Yum, that sounds good (and simple!). I will definitely try your recipe. :-)

  3. I guess I should try that for Madi. She too had acid reflux- I had to sleep with her and prop her up on a bobby so she wouldn't choke:( Glad that's over with.

  4. YUMMY! That's one of my favorite foods! I like to add a little cilantro to mine. Of course, I like to add a little cilantro to most anything:)

    My girl smiles like that when she eats it too! Of course, she's 16, and it's not nearly as cute.....

  5. Oh, yeah! The girl has good taste, for sure. Guac is one of our faves around here, too.

  6. Madi can say the word flower but, it's hard to get her to say it. She says it everytime I click on your blog and she sees the header!
