Tiny #Kitchen, #Culinary Mission: #Guacamole


One of the first recipes many people learn is how to make guacamole. There’s a good reason for that – it’s very simple, pretty healthy, and tastes great. Not many recipes can claim that trifecta.

Using the tips preparing avocados we’ve recently mentioned you will have the base for a great version. We reduced the quantities here so that it is an amount comfortable for 2 people, though you could make a larger batch and serve more people at a time (and avoid storing parts of fruits or vegetables that get left over). One other great feature of this recipe is it doesn’t require any special equipment beyond a fork, a knife, and a bowl.
