Cindo de Mayo Guacomole Recipe at thatswhatchesaid.net
I haven’t always been a fan of avocados and guacamole!  {I know, right?!?  blasphemy!}  Avocados have been an acquired taste for me and recently I can’t get enough of them and can’t stop making guacamole!  I had no idea why, but I crave it, like everyday!  So I have mixing up batch after batch, figuring out just the perfect proportions and ingredients and finally found one that I love.  Ryan is a huge fan too!  “Mom, I have some of your Wock-a-mowee?”  It’s even cuter when he actually says it!  :)

  • 2 each avocado
  • 1 each plum tomato, seeded
  • 1 each lime
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cucumber*, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of pre-made salsa**
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Begin by cutting your avocados in half, removing the pit, and scooping the flesh out of the skin with a large spoon.
  • Place avacado in bowl and smash with a fork until broken down.
  • Add onion, cucumber, cilantro, and salsa and mix until incorporated.
  • Give your lime a good roll on your cutting board and then slice in half and juice into bowl, mix well.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.


*Pickling cucumbers or English cucumbers work great here because they have very fine seeds. If using regular cucumbers, remove seeds first.
**Choose your favorite salsa flavor. A nice smokey salsa works great here!
