We all know guacamole is finger-licking tasty, especially in the summer when avocados are ripe and in season, but who would’ve thought guacamole can be whipped up and enjoyed in less than twenty minutes with five simple ingredients? Lara Land transforms and elevates the traditional summertime snack by adding minced yellow peppers to the mix with lots and lots of cilantro. A few splashes of homemade lemon and lime juice add the perfect tang and acidity just begging to be scooped up with your favorite tortilla chips. We kid you not that all you need for this fabulous recipe are these five ingredients, some salt, pepper, a fork and a pretty little bowl  to mix everything together. Ten minutes in and you’ve got yourself a new twist on an old favorite.
