3 Ingredient Guacamole

Living in SoCal, it seems we have an endless supply of avocados year round. They are also incredibly affordable. California produces 90 percent of fresh avocados consumed in the United States. I'm not sure why we are not called the avocado state! Avocado is kind of like bacon - it makes everything better. However, I like it best in a simple guacamole.

This three ingredient guacamole is going to rock your world! It is so delicious and so easy, you'll be eating it everyday. All you will need to purchase is avocados, pico de gallo and a lime. A sprinkle of sea or kosher salt helps bring out all the flavors. The pico de gallo has tomatoes, onions, jalepeno, and cilantro. I prefer it's freshness to salsa. You can find pre-made pico de gallo in your produce section.

Today when I got home from the store with my ingredients, my ravenous 18 year old son yelled out food. So primal! Within 10 minutes I had him happily munching on this three ingredient wonder for lunch. It is perfect for lunch, a snack or as an appetizer at your weekend BBQ. I promise it will be gone in minutes.
