recipe: guacamole

Photobucket
In honor of Cinco de
drinko Mayo I give you the bommmmbest guac recipe on the block. We can all thank my cousin who is basically the 30-something Ina Garten for this one.

Also, may I suggest these cucumber jalapeno margaritas? If you start infusing the tequila today it will be ready just in time for the festivities!

HOW TO: Guacamole

You will need:
3 ripe avocados, diced (I prefer Haas avocados)
1/3 cup white onion,
chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced (if you prefer it spicier add 1.5-2 jalapenos)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (or more if you like it limey which I do)
Salt to taste (be generous as salt really brings out the flavor of the avocados)

1. Halve and pit the avocados. Scoop out the flesh with a tablespoon into a mixing bowl. Dice and mash the avocados with a fork.

2. Add the remaining ingredients, fold everything together and mix gently.

3. Lay a piece of plastic wrap right on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn’t brown and refrigerate for about an hour before serving.

  1. The most common recipe also involved diced tomatoes. I’m not a huge fan of tomatoes but it tastes great on guacamole.
