Guacamole for Two

So these fancy friends of mine got me a beefy mortar and pestle for my birthday. I named it Brutus. It smashes things. Cracks, crushes, and mashes things. Yes, indeed. Brutus really throws his weight around in the kitchen. I don't mind, less muscle use for me.

Brutus makes great guac for two. Chop up one avocado, five cherry tomatoes, a thick slice of onion, and four basil leaves - or you could use cilantro.

Pour in 1 Tbsp of lime juice, 1/4 tsp of garlic salt, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Mash, mash, mash. Mush, mush, mush. Guacamole for two. If you don't have a beefy mortar and pestle, you can use a food processor, a fork, or even your hands if you're feeling frisky. Enjoy!


  1. That Brutus sure is a handsome devil!
