Guacamole In A Hurry


Quick Guacamole

There seems to be a mystique about making guacamole.  People are always asking me how I make it.  There are contests called “Guac Offs” to choose the best recipe.  Honestly,  we don’t usually have time to think about it.  Living on an avocado ranch comes with some responsibilities, and one is to be able to serve a batch of guacamole at a moment’s notice.   Either we have visitors who have never mashed an avocado,  or the family has just come  in for a snack and are famished.  Sometimes I’m the one who needs a quick lunch.    There will be no washing and chopping of vegetables in these situations!   Just use salsa and seasoning with mashed avocado.

Be sure you start with a perfectly ripe avocado.   Avocados soften after they are picked from the tree…if your avocados are still hard,  they need more time to soften.

Essential Ingredients for Guacamole in a Hurry

If you want to make your guacamole taste really professional….like it came from a restaurant…add fresh cilantro!


Serve with chips or on salad! Put it on a burger!

There are lots of ways to enjoy guacamole.   We have added crab meat,  or used just grated onion instead of salsa.  Some love to add garlic and some don’t.   If you want some kick, you’ll need hot sauce.   There is no mystery to good guacamole….the simple secret is to use perfectly ripened avocados.  The easiest way to do this is to participate in the ripening process.  Buy them when they’re fresh and hard, then eat them  when they are just beginning to “give” as you gently hold and press with your thumb.  The freshest avocados come direct from our family  farm,  picked to order and delivered to your door.      With a monthly subscription you can have some ripening in the kitchen every day,   just as if you had your own avocado farm!

  1. Hi Mimi,
    Thank you so much for the wonderful post about Fallbrook. You bought the Franciscan plate from my store, “The Broken Chair”. So glad you made the trek to my little town and enjoyed your visit.
    Come back soon,
    P.S. Your blog is great!,

    • Thanks so much for reading, Kelly! I found out that the Franciscan pattern is called “Small Fruits”. I found some small bowls on Ebay to go with the plate! Some of the pieces for sale on Ebay are very expensive. I think your price for the plate was fair. I’ll be back to see you at The Broken Chair! (and I’ll add your store’s name to the blog…do you have a website yet?) Hope I get a chance to write about your shop again soon!
