First of all, meet my brother:
I wouldn’t say he’s a health food advocate (ok, not really at all. Although his wife does keep him in line.) but when our family got together, he announced he’d be making his “world famous guacamole” for us. Obviously, I was excited because 1. I love guacamole and 2. I don’t think I’ve ever seen my brother make anything but popcorn and macaroni and cheese.
He picked out his ingredients, and started chopping things up in the kitchen.
It was only a few moments after he put the bowl on the table, when we all went crazy for it. It’s some seriously delicious stuff, and it’s also simple enough to be added to the “5-ingredients or less” recipe list!
Mark’s World Famous Guacamole
- 4 avocados
- 1/2 purple onion
- 1 lime
- 1 jalapeno
He scooped out the flesh of the guacamole, and mashed it all up. Then he diced the onion and the jalapeno. For our family, he only added half the jalapeno, but on his own, I’m sure he throws it all in. (My brother and I share a love of hot sauce.) Then he just squeezed in the juice from the lime, and added salt to taste. So easy, but so delicious.
This recipe is so simple, but so delicious. I have no idea why people think guacamole has to be complicated. I’ll definitely be recreating this at home soon.
And now, I’m heading out for a run with Brittany! I’m more excised than usual, since it’s finally cool enough for me to wear my new Lululemon running capris
It feels good to be starting the week off with a run! (Even though morning runs generally only happen if I have someone holding me accountable…)
