Guacamole is a family-favorite in my house. It’s quite typical during the summer nights to find us gathering around the table to gobble down some guac ‘n chips. Yum! My only qualm is that every time I make guacamole, somebody has feedback for me. It seems that guacamole is more a work of great art than an appetizer. “I typically use more tomato!” “Did you put the cilantro in it?” or “I’ll show you how I make it next time.” Ugh! And my beloved boyfriend is the largest culprit. Talk about a back seat chef! (Love you, though.)
My secret for survival? A nice wheat treat. But shhh.
So this year I am more than dedicated to finding the most amazingly-perfect, can’t-argue-with-me guacamole. I’m starting early, but I think I’ve chosen my winner. I’m welcoming feedback until the end of May. Speak now or forever hold your guac-peace.
3 avocados, ripe
1 lime, juiced
1 small red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 cup salsa, fresh
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Peel and chop the avocados and place the pieces in a small mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocados until you have a creamy mixture. Stir in the fresh lime juice. Add the onion, garlic, pepper, and salt, and mix well.
Add homemade or store-bought sales to the mixture. Mix in chopped cilantro. This is best served within an hour or so of making it since it browns quickly.
