  • Servings



  • 3

    medium avocados

  • 2

    bell peppers (yellow, orange, or red for extra color), sliced

  • ½

    medium white onion, diced

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1

    handful cilantro

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit, and spoon out fruit into a medium bowl. Mash with a potato masher, or a large fork. Add the bell peppers, onion, garlic, lime juice. Stir until it's mixed together well. Add cilantro to taste, then salt and pepper. Mix together and cover with a piece of plastic wrap - press right against the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation and discoloration. Place into the refrigerator and let sit for at least 1 hour so the flavors have a chance to meld. Spoon into a serving bowl and serve with crackers.
