Easy Guacamole

So our meals at the beginning of the week had a definite Mexican flavour to them! We made some appetizers in lieu of lunch one day and decided to use the avocados ($1.25/4) and jalapenos ($2.99/6) I had purchased.


  • 2 avocados, pitted ($.63/2)
  • 1 capful olive oil
  • 1 capful lemon juice
  • ~1tsp of minced jalapeno ($.25)
  • ~1 tsp minced onion
  • a dash of salt


  • Mash the avocados with a fork.
  • Mix in the liquids
  • Stir in the jalapeno and onion
  • Drizzle the salt and provide a final stir

Financial Breakdown:

The ingredients at the store cost $3.25 but the guacamole itself was $0.88

This is a super basic recipe and if you’ve got cilantro, garlic and tomatoes I suspect that it would be even better. Considering what I had on hand I was thrilled to make a tasty guacamole that satisfied my craving.In fact we ate it before I could snap a photo.

Do you have a favourite guacamole recipe?
