One food I absolutely love is avocados. I love them on sandwiches, in soups, and salads. My favorite thing to do with avocados is make guacamole. Guacamole is always a crowd pleaser as well as good for a late night snack with friends. I have made guacamole several different ways but this recipe is my favorite. It is extremely quick and easy. This recipe can either be made with cubanelle or poblano peppers. Cubanelle peppers are a little more sweet, where as poblano peppers can have a little kick.


  • 1/4 of a medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 medium pepper, cubanelle or poblano, quartered
  • a handful & a half fresh cilantro, leaves & stems
  • 2 ripe avocados, cut in half & pits removed
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • dash of pepper

  1. Put the onion, pepper, tomato, and cilantro in the food processor. Pulse a few seconds until finely chopped.
  2. Cut avocados in half. Remove pits, then scoop the flesh into the food processor. Add in the salt, pepper, and lime juice. Pulse for a few seconds until avocado is well incorporated.
  3. Scoop mixture into a bowl. Refrigerate for a half hour to forty minutes, then serve!

Tip: To keep guacamole from browning drizzle a little additional lime juice and cover with saran wrap.
