For you folks that cilantro tastes like soap, I am so sorry! That’s a real bummer! It’s not your fault, it’s just genetics. People like me don’t taste soap when we eat cilantro.

And not for a lack of knowing what soap tastes like. My childhood had a few too many potty mouth cleansings. :/



Cilantro, for peeps like me, has an incredible flavor that is difficult to describe. So I won’t even try.

The “Recipe”.

This Cilantro Lime Guacamole is so easy to make it’s difficult for me to call it a “recipe”. But I suppose technically it is just that.

5 simple ingredients!

Cilantro Lime Guacamole Recipe
  • 2 avocados
  • the juice of 1 lime
  • 1-2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Use a spoon to scoop out that delicious creamy pulp. Add the lime juice, cilantro and salt, and pepper. Mash it up with a fork. Enjoy! Sometimes for a bit of smokiness, I like to add some of my DIY Smokey Chipotle Powder Spice.

*By the way…this guac freezes very well! In fact, avocados in general, do great in the freezer. When they go on sale for $.89 each, stock up! Cut them in half and remove the pit. Put them in a large freezer bag and get out as much air from the bag as you can. Throw them right in the freezer. Vacuum bags are even better!
