Easy Guacamole

What do you do when you have 2 almost over-ripe avocados sitting in your kitchen? Make guacamole of course! We eat a lot of avocado in this house and guacamole is one of our favorite things to make. When we’re feeling lazy (can you sense that’s a trend of ours?), we sometimes buy the Trader Joe’s guacamole pack. It comes with 2 avocados, a tomato, jalapeno, lime, shallots, and garlic for quick guac assembly.

But since we already had avocados, we just added the rest of what we had on hand to make the perfect weekend snack. Instead of jalapenos, we used the rest of our fresno chilis from our csa box.

Warning, you will probably eat waaay too much of this if you’re anything like me!
