Chunky Guac with a Twist

Here’s a super easy guac recipe just in time for Super Bowl Sunday. It’s so fast, you can whip it up during the commercial break. But, if you don’t want to miss the great commercials, you can prepare it in advance…even the day before.

That’s right. The lemon in this recipe keeps the avocado from turning into a brown, unsavory mess overnight. Lemon is also a nice twist in place of the conventional lime in most guac recipes.
One batch makes about two servings, so if you’re feeding a crowd, you may want to at least double or triple the recipe or more. For added flair, grate a teaspoon of lemon zest and mix in to the recipe.


1 large ripe avocado
1 roma tomato
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 clove garlic

Cut avocado lengthwise and remove seed. Over a large bowl, squeeze the outside of each half of the avocado to get the inside to slide out. Mash the avocado with a fork. Add lemon juice, salt, and pressed garlic clove. Stir. Chop tomato and add to the bowl. Stir once more and serve with tortilla chips.  Healthy, fresh, and inexpensive…gotta love it!

    I like to add a bit of Arizona Dreaming spice from Penzeys, which is a blend of ground ancho, onion, garlic, paprika, citric acid, lemon peel, chipotle pepper, red pepper, jalapeno, cocoa, and natural smoke flavoring.
