The Best Homemade Guacamole: And it’s Simple!


Do you have any idea how embarrassing it is to eat at a Mexican restaurant with a man who doesn’t like guacamole?  Or how sad it is when all the popular people are posting Instagram pics with their avocado or guacamole and you live with a man who doesn’t like those things?

It is the struggle.

But no, seriously, my husband always told me he didn’t like guacamole.  And to be honest, a lot of guacamoles out there are pretty bad, so I don’t really blame him.  I have come up with a cure for his guacamole distaste, though: a guacamole so simple that I can whip it up on a whim yet delicious enough that I don’t have to worry about leftovers turning brown (leftovers: there will be none).

The Best Homemade Guacamole

(These portions are per avocado – multiply them by the amount of avocados you want to use.)


the flesh of one avocado, smashed
2-3 teaspoons Kraft shredded Parmesan cheese
several shakes of granulated garlic
salt, to taste

That’s it.  That’s IT.  Combine all of these ingredients and gobble it up – on chips, on bread, in tacos, in burritos, on enchiladas, on a spoon.

One night when I made this, I told my husband,
“I don’t mind that avocados are fatty, because they have a good kind of fat.”
His response was,
“You’re a good kind of fat.”

Well, he appreciates me, it seems. 🙂

All this talk of my husband makes me want to share a picture of us having fun in Florida.  This picture is from March:


We’re so cute, I know it.
