Guacamole can be incredibly simple or more elaborate, so here I’m going to show you a super quick, easy guacamole dip that tastes divine. If you prefer a more elaborate recipe, you can read how to make traditional guacamole here.
For this quick easy guacamole recipe, you’ll need some beautiful, ripe avocados. When choosing the avocados, they should ‘give’ under your finger pressure. If they’re hard, they’re not ripe yet and if they’re too soft they get mushy and don’t have a nice flavour.
Delicious Quick & Easy Guacamole
I must confess that this easy guacamole dip recipe is my all time favourite guacamole. It takes just 5 minutes to put together and it tastes like no other. The only negative is that you’ll need lots of avocados if you’re feeding lots of people and it won’t go as far as the traditional guacamole dip recipe, because it’s basically just avocados.
All you need is 2 avocados, (or about one avocado per person) one large ripe tomato and half a lemon. The avocados should be ready to eat but not overripe. They should be good ones because this recipe depends entirely on the flavour from the avocados.
Put the avocado flesh into a bowl and squeeze on the juice of half a lemon and a good slosh of olive oil. Next add the tomato – well mashed or pureed in the blender – and mash the mixture really well until it’s smooth and creamy. Add salt to taste.
Use this deliciously easy guacamole as a dip or spread thickly on toast for a light lunch or yummy breakfast.I absolutely love it with these gluten free, sweet chilli rice crackers from Amazon.

Storing the Guacamole
Oxygen will make the guacamole discolour, turning black in almost no time at all. The way to avoid that happening is to put it into a Tupperware box and pat it down flat. Squeeze lemon juice over the top and then lay silver foil over the top of the guacamole, lying flush with the dip and covering the edges completely of the dip and of the box.
On top of the silver foil, close the lid of your Tupperware box and keep it in the fridge until ready to serve. I’ve kept this guacamole overnight using this method, with no discolouration at all.
