When I was in college and before the days of the internet, I would follow random people at ethnic grocery stores and ask them how to make certain dishes. Many were excited to share their recipes with me and I was stoked to try out some of my favorite dishes from my own kitchen!
Here is one recipe I learned from grocery store stalking. It’s a staple in my home and I probably make and eat it at least once a week.
I’ve been making guacamole for years because it’s super easy and delicious! It’s a healthy snack and goes with everything (or at least I want it to). I add it to my tacos and burritos for a creamy consistency that’s like butter!
I recently made some guacamole for our day trip to Whidbey Island. My friends tasted it and they were hooked. They asked me for my recipe so I decided to post it on the blog!
Please enjoy this recipe! If you have any twists or takes on your guacamole recipes I’d love to try them!

- You can leave the jalapeño out if you do not want your guacamole to be spicy.
