I love guacamole! When I discovered avocados as a teenager—the main ingredient in guacamole—I couldn’t believe what I had been missing!

One downside to guacamole is it tends to quickly turn brown. The solution? Lime juice!

So in honor of lime juice saving the lovely green color of guacamole, check out “Limehouse Blues” sung by the Mills Brothers.



  • 1 small roma tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup of onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 avocados


  1. In a medium sized bowl combine all the ingredients. Don't overmix or the guacamole will lose it's chunkiness.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap. Guacamole will keep in the fridge for up to 8 hours.
