Recipe | Go-To Guacamole

You most likely have seen a theme over the past weeks with the recipes I’m posting. Veggies. And lean proteins. We just brought home a new BBQ this past weekend that has been quite the obsession. It’s pretty. And blue. Heats up in a heart beat, and minimizes any kitchen clean-up. It’s been a dream. And you know what the best part is? Veggies and lean proteins cook perfectly on a BBQ. That said, we always need a little snack once in a while. So here is the easiest, tastiest Guacamole. Dunk in some crudité, or throw in some corn chips if you feel so inclined.

Go-To Guacamole

Yield: 2 cups


  • 2 ripe avocados – not brown ripe, but definitely tender to touch
  • 1/2 fresh lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 – 2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce, optional 
  • A good pinch of kosher salt
  • A good grinding of fresh cracked black pepper


I like to dice my avocados a little bit before mushing with a fork, in a small/medium bowl. It makes it a bit less messy without avocado flying all over my kitchen. I then add in the lemon, cilantro and Sriracha – and mix thoroughly with my fork. Taste, then add in the appropriate amount of salt and pepper. I typically err on the heavy side for dips – only because there really isn’t any salt in the crudité – start with a 1/2 tsp, and work your way up – tasting after each addition. Transfer to a nice serving bowl, surrounded with your favourite crudité, and/or corn chips. And top with a little extra Sriracha if you like the spice. 🙂 

Muey Caliente!

    As I loathe cilantro do you think I could substitute parsley? Two other phrases you definitely need know if you don’t already is ‘Dos cerevazas por favor’ and of course ‘una botella de vino-Tinto’

      Hi Viv!
      I’m always a bit weary of substituting anything for cilantro – as it really does have a unique flavour (that some absolutely cannot stand… like in your case :)).
      I would suggest just leaving it out altogether. And perhaps use lime instead of lemon to up the “South of the Border” flare.
      Enjoy! xox
