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.
