Yummy Guacamole!

I love guacamole.  Paired with a pitcher of margarita or ice cold beer, and some good company, you can have yourself a little Mexican fiesta.  Follow the recipe below for a simple guacamole recipe that’s sure to have your guests talking long after the party is over. ¡Buen apetito!


Serves: 4
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • ½ white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno (seeded for less heat, if desired), finely chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mash the avocados with the back of a fork until it is smooth, or if you like, chunky.
  2. Then combine the onion, jalapeno, cilantro, ¾ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper and lime juice.  Using the fork, fold all ingredients into the avocado until it is evenly combined.  Refrigerate for an hour for best taste.

Other tips:

  • I like to add extra cilantro, diced Roma tomatoes and minced garlic.
  • Try using baked pita chips for a healthier alternative to tortilla chips.
  • To avoid the guacamole from turning brown, leave the pit of the avocado inside the guacamole.
