I just came back from a few days visiting my family in Miami.  And in Miami, just like in Puerto Rico, people sell produce at the street lights.  A few days back we bought 4 avocados for $5.  Amazing…  because they were all good avocados.  Sometimes when they sell them to you that cheap is because they’re not so good on the inside.  And with avocados, it’s a crap shoot.  Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you need to throw a whole avocado away.

I said they were all good, but some were too ripe and they were smashed underneath the skin next to the ones that were still under-ripe.  And that only left me one alternative to enjoy them – make an awesome Guacamole.




1 avocado, if the flesh is firm, cut into small pieces
½ large tomato, peeled and finely diced
¼ medium onion, finely diced
The juice of 1 criollo lemon or lime
A drizzle of olive oil – about 1 tbs
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 tbs of fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Mix everything in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Let it stand in the fridge for a few hours so the flavors meld together. 


This version ended up being more mashed than what I usually like it.  But remember we started out with mashed avocados.   When I make it again, I post another picture so you can see the difference in texture.  And That’s really the only difference because the taste is equally delicious.

    I’m totally excited to try some of these vegetarian recipes out! I’m not supposed to eat wheat, and I limit my dairy, but you have lots of fab stuff here.

    I found your site while seraching for a “safe” rice cooker.

    One question – no garlic in your guacamole?

      Thanks Stephanie for stopping by… I am glad you find our recipes interesting and useful for your lifestyle/diet requirements. I have been put in wheat-free and dairy-free diets so many times I have learned to work around the limitations and focus on the possibilities of everything else I can eat. I actually made guacamole yesterday… and I usually do not include garlic, but you can certainly add some roasted garlic or even use garlic salt instead of regular salt if you prefer. You have actually given me an idea for a future recipe/post… Thanks and keep on visiting. Did you know we are also on FACEBOOK and on Twitter??? Look for us and get the alerts everytime we post something new…
