Florida Avocado Guacamole

Florida avocados are different only in size and shape from their more expensive cousins, the Hass avocados. I've also read that Florida avocados have a little less fat in them than the Hass avos do, but the taste difference is minimal. This is a quick dip/spread that is full of good fats, veggies, and flavor!

Total Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Cook Time: NONE!

What you will need:

1 Florida avocado, very ripe
1 tomato (vine ripe is good)
1 lime
1/4 of an onion
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
chili powder, to taste
salt, to taste

Remove your avocado from the skin. The easiest way to do this is to cut it in half, remove the pit, and then use a knife to loosen the avocado from the skin.

Dice your tomato and 1/4 of a sweet onion, and add to the bowl with the avocado.

Add all of your spices, and salt and add chili powder to your own tastes. Squeeze in the juice of the lime.

Mash and combine using two forks.

Serve, and enjoy!


  1. Cilantro would have been wonderful! Unfortunately, I didn't have any in my fridge at the time I was making this. I'd also add chopped jalapenos if I had those, but I had to substitute the chili powder in instead.
