Reliving vacations: Guacamole

Pin It

I've always liked guacamole, but after a trip to Mexico in December, it's a full on love.

We were staying in the Mayan Riviera and it was my first all inclusive vacation.  I was afraid I would be bored the entire time, little did I know how awesome lying on the beach with unlimited drinks and food could be.  My drink of choice became the Coco Loco and my food of choice, hands down was the guacamole. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Literally.

Just some of the visual delights to go along with my guacamole in Mexico!
I've been making this recipe for a few years now, because it's simple and full of flavour.  

I dare you to make this, and not eat the entire bowl in one sitting - it's a real test of will power, of which I have none!

originally found here

  • 3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup diced onion (I prefer red onion for this)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional, but delicious if you like cilantro)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. 
  2. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. 
  3. Stir in cayenne pepper. 
  4. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour for the best flavor, but you can serve it immediately if required/you can't resist!
