I love avocados and guacamole. I am especially a fan of guacamole being a healthy snack. You can dip anything from veggies to pita chips in this easy one avocado guacamole.
Homemade guacamole is not really a food that you can prep ahead of time and eat when you want. Sometimes a girl just wants her healthy fats from guacamole and no one to share with.
This guacamole recipe with one avocado is perfect for a single serving. Like when you have a bit of leftover Queso Fundido with Chorizo or would like a quick and healthy snack.
How To Make Guacamole With One Avocado
One avocado guacamole is super easy to make and can be customized to your taste.
In this healthy guacamole recipe, I used one green onion, but two tablespoons of any finely chopped onion will work well. Although, I would suggest a red onion for the flavor.
I also used grape tomatoes in this recipe. I often prep the ingredients without the avocado to take this to work and make guacamole for dipping. The grape tomatoes hold up better with the thick skin, but if you are chopping and eating immediately, feel free to use about one-quarter cup chopped tomatoes of your choice.
In a small bowl, add one chopped green onion, six diced grape tomatoes, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon cilantro, and 1 teaspoon lime juice.. Mix well, then add in one peeled, pitted, and chopped avocado.
Mash the avocado in this the remaining ingredients, stir well, and enjoy.
How To Prep Guacamole For Work Or School
I love guacamole as a healthy snack during night shifts. To make this guacamole you will not add in the avocado ahead of time. Those suckers turn brown too fast.
In an airtight container, add in the onion, tomato, garlic powder, pepper, cumin, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Pack the guacamole mix and whole avocado in your lunchbox.
When ready to eat, add in the peeled and pitted avocado, mash and mix well. Enjoy immediately.
What To Dip In Guacamole
Quick and easy one avocado guacamole was made for dipping. Tortilla chips are an obvious choice, but pita chips are my personal favorite chip for dipping.
For a healthier option, dip celery sticks, sliced bell peppers, carrots or basically any veggie that can hold a creamy guacamole dip.
