A little salt. Some pepper. A few table spoons olive oil. The juice of half a lemon or less. A little garlic. Maybe some rice or soy milk, or soy creem - or maybe not.

Oh, and one avocado.

But be careful. It's addictive! :)

If your 'what I ate today' is anything to go by, I'm sure you could find a few fries to dip into it ;)

No, please no... don't put soymilk or silken tofu in your guacamole.. that's just not right.

Oil isn't needed either.

My guacamole only has avocado, the juice of one lime (no lemons - it makes it funnytasting), a bit of salt, a little pepper, about 1 clove or so worth garlic and some El Pato to give it spice (don't add too much or you'll thin it down). You can also use canned jalapeno juice for the heat, but I like the El Pato better. Mash with a fork until it's somewhat creamy, somewhat chunky. Eat with anything humans can consume.

Sometimes, if I'm feeling extra fancy, I'll put in a half teaspoon of cumin, a roma tomato chopped up, and a bit of fine diced onion.

ETA: if you don't have El Pato, then just use about 1/8 teaspoon of ceyanne pepper.

I make avocado spreads of all sorts but they aren't really "guacamole"..."guacamole" is in my top 2 favorite though!

I usually just mash up an avocado and add salsa to it. It turns kind of a funky color, but it's yummy. :)

Instead of traditional corn/tortilla chips, I like to eat mine with pita bread.

Try this recipe with guacamole.

Black Bean Taquitos
12 corn tortillas
1 cup refried black beans (can substitute pinto or other beans)
1 1/2 cups light flavored olive oil
salsa
guacamole
Tofutti Sour Cream

Directions:

Heat olive oil in a pan at low or med-low heat for 2 minutes or until hot. Microwave tortillas for 45 seconds.
Scoop 1 1 tablespoon of beans on each tortilla one at a time and roll into a thin taquito (about a inch diameter).
Fry, 3 at a time, with tongs for about 4 minutes, turning every minute.
Place on plate lined with paper towel to drain excess grease.
Use sour cream and guacamole as dipping sauces.
YUM!
