Holy Guacamole!

June 4, 2008 at 10:08 am 19 comments

It was 917am and I got an itch. No not that kind of itch. GROSS!

The craving itch.

After confirming with my food-knows-no-etiquette friend, Nikki, about the ramifications (if any) of eating guacamole for breakfast, I pitted a couple avocados, furiously chopped up some veggies and… don’t bother me. Eating.

(Recipe from Tyler Florence via foodnetwork.com | photos from me!)


6 ripe avocados
3 limes, juiced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, smashed then minced
2 serrano chiles, cut into rounds
1 big handful fresh cilantro with stems, about 1/2 cup, finely chopped
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Halve and pit the avocados. With a tablespoon, scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados using either a fork or potato masher, leaving them still a bit chunky. Add the remaining ingredients, and fold everything together. Drizzle with a little olive oil, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and give it 1 final mix with a fork.

The players club

Lay a piece of plastic wrap tight on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn’t brown and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. (So didn’t wait an hour…)

Yummy! My other guacamole recipe has tomatoes and doesn’t use olive oil but my husband is the tomato freak, not me, so this recipe suited me just fine. Will definitely make again!

    HOLLY, I know we’ve only kinda just met via blogosphere and TWD but I think we’d get along swimmingly IRL. Wanna come over for breakfast? Guac’s on me! ;)

    Now what exactly is wrong with eating guacamole for breakfast? Avacado is a fruit, so you were eating healthy! :-)

  • 8. CB  |  June 4, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    JENNY, I like the way you think! haha!

  • 9. amanda  |  June 4, 2008 at 6:23 pm

    You are an mean, mean person. I’ve been craving guacamole for weeks but I won’t make it because the husband hates it. Now I want it even more!

  • 10. CB  |  June 4, 2008 at 6:36 pm

    AMANDA, haha. I say you should make it and eat the whole thing yourself. Its vegetables and fruits. Its healthy! ;)

  • 11. Rachel  |  June 4, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    Did you know that if you put avocados in the fridge at the peak of ripeness, they’ll stay that way for a week or even longer? That’s my favorite tip of all time.

    PS Next time share, K?

  • 12. CB  |  June 4, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    RACHEL, Good tip! Thats what I do with my ripe ones. The ones that are underripe I put in a brown paper bag so that they ripened faster. I think you’re suppose to put an apple in the bag too b/c the apple gives off ethylene gas and helps it ripened. Just some nerd science for ya. HAHA.

    mmmm i luv guacamole… mine is just avocados, chopped onion, chopped tomatoes and lime juice and you wouldn’t believe how people absolutely rave about it… they are always like ‘whats in it?!?!’…and it’s the most BASIC of guac recipes. it’s in my blood. YUM!

  • 14. CB  |  June 5, 2008 at 7:02 am

    MARA, I think thats why I like guac. Simple ingredients, a little prep but GREAT snack (or breakfast in my sitch!) HAHA.

  • 15. Madam Chow  |  June 5, 2008 at 12:56 pm

    I just made some guacamole, too! I love the stuff. And your cakester recipe . . . looks awesome, but dangerous. That makes a whole LOT of cookies!

  • 16. CB  |  June 5, 2008 at 12:59 pm

    MADAMCHOW, I am totally a guac addict! yeah those cakesters make alot but you can cut the recipe in 1/2 easily so its not “as” much. Probably another reason why I don’t make them that often… too dangerous!

  • 17. Alohi  |  June 21, 2008 at 3:00 am

    Yes *hoppydance* another 4 paws up creation!

    I just knew this was going to be a winnerwith me, *giggles* my Mr. Picky “I don’t eat nothing no slicker than me!” turned his nose up at it. YES! Mine all mine I thought! (BEEP!) WRONG!

    I thought I was going to have it all to myself for lunch. When I went to snag a scoop of this yummy guacamole it was gone, I mean the container had less than a tablespoon left. *sniff*

    Mr. Picky said he decided to try a little bit of it *shaking my head* Guess he kept trying it and trying it huh? Ha ha!

    Off to make some more and this time I’m doubling the recipe. *snickers*

  • 18. CB  |  June 21, 2008 at 7:27 am

    ALOHI, I lurve guac! So glad we changed Mr. Picky’s mind :)

  • 19. Alohi  |  July 3, 2008 at 10:07 am

    Yeah me too! Mr. Picky can be such a P.I.T.A at times when it comes to food.

    Hard to believe how much he likes this recipe. *hoppydance*
