The Best Guac. Ever.

Posted Jul 04 2011 1:54pm

Hi Guys! Happy 4th. Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

Joe and I spent Saturday and Sunday out in the 'burbs and "rented" his parent's house since they're away on vacation. It was like a mini-vacation away from the city. We both kicked off the weekend with long runs. Joe planned out a very hilly 10-miler for me out in his hometown, and wrote the directions on the back of my hand (whatever works!). I love running routes I've never run before because the new scenery keeps me occupied. I finished it in 1 hr, 25 minutes and felt strong.

No, I did not run the Good Neighbor Day 15K (today) because I wanted to fully enjoy the BBQ yesterday! It's all about balance, people. But I still feel accomplished with the 10-miler.

Joe and I are back and Philly and are heading out in a bit to check out the 4th festivities here in the city! But before I go, I want to share with you my self-declared kick-ass guacamole recipe. It's awesome. More recipes from the 4th to come later this week, but this one couldn't wait!

Katie's Kick-Ass Guac Recipe


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 onion
  • 2 limes (juice)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Core & scoop avocados into large bowl

  • Chop onion and tomato and add to bowl
  • Juice 2 limes into bowl
  • Chop garlic and add to bowl
  • Chop cilanto and add to bowl. They key here is fresh cilantro. Must be fresh. Cannot be that dried crap or stuff from a tube. Yuck.

  • Add S&P to taste.
  • Smash (is "smash" a culinary term?) all ingredients together with fork until chunky yet smooth. Don't over smash!

  • Test with tostitos.
  • If in doubt, add more salt. (I always seem to add more salt).
  • Drink with corona and/or margarita.

Happy 4th of July!!!
