Basic Guacamole

This is a basic guacamole recipe that I make all the time – and it is a base for lots of other options and flavors to be added, depending on your taste )and what you have on hand!). I put this on chicken, fish, lettuce wraps, with tortilla chips (I am loving Food Should Taste Good Catina chips right now) and sometimes I whip up quesadillas with Paneer (see recipe).

  • 3 medium avocados
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • juice from one lemon (or two limes)

Scoop the avocado into a bowl. Mash the avocado against the bowl with the back of a fork. Add the crushed red pepper, turmeric, cayenne, salt and lemon. Mix well.
