Not just any guacamole, though. It would be this guacamole. You might think that’s a crazy thing to say – I mean, how could one person live off of guacamole for the rest of their lives. The only thing I can say to you is, you really don’t understand the depth of my love of guacamole.
Nowadays I see about five million different guacamole recipes with all these crazy ingredients like charred pineapple, goat cheese and strawberries. While all of these different variations of guacamole are just fine, nothing beats a classic recipe like this one. Isn’t the phrase “don’t mess with a classic?” or something along those lines? There’s a reason for it.
Honestly, all those dressed up crazy recipes are all lacking one thing – highlighting the star ingredient, the avocado. It’s the star of the recipe and it gets pushed down to a mere creamy afterthought with way too many recipes that I see out there. I say, instead of throwing in everything in the pantry to drown out the avocado, let’s prop up that avocado on the pedestal it belongs on.

Avocado isn’t only delicious; it’s also extremely healthy, packed with the fats that you should be putting into your body plus a hefty dose of protein to keep you strong. It really is a super food for a reason!
If you are an avocado-lover or obsessed with guacamole, I demand that you drop everything you are doing and make this recipe right now. It’s ridiculously simple to throw together, but in one bite you’ll notice that this guacamole isn’t like every other guacamole you’ve tasted.
This 5-ingredient guacamole packs a bold punch of flavor and spice that will have your taste buds dancing with job after every bite. The heat comes from the jalapeno and the bite of the red onion, while the lime juice and cilantro round everything out, finishing with a creamy hug from your dear friend, the avocado.
Why mess with a good thing when you can make something in less than 5 minutes that’ll satisfy every guacamole craving you’ve every had?
