As promised….here is my guac recipe. I really don’t think guac is all that hard. It comes down to taste preferences and correct seasoning if you ask me. I have definitely had some guac that is better than others, for sure, but I also think it’s usually just a matter of salt.
Here is what I include and how I do it.
- Red onion
- *in the summer I sometimes add fresh off the vine tomatoes, but I only do that when they’re available. I don’t eat tomatoes from the grocery store
The avocados are the bulk of guacamole. Everything else is just to taste as far as I’m concerned. I typically put in a lot of onion and cilantro because that’s how I like it! If you don’t like those as much, put in a little less. Here’s what my bowl looked like before I mashed it all up.
It was pretty much, 2 whole avocados, 1/5 of a red onion finely chopped, 1 big garlic clove, 1/3 big bunch of cilantro finely chopped, 1/2 lime, S&P to taste. I don’t overdo it on the lime, S&P at first, I do a little and then taste it and then add more. This time I added more of all 3.
That’s it! There she is in all her glory. I made this after I ate so I wouldn’t devour the whole thing, but don’t get me wrong, it certainly won’t last long. I love guacamole! I’m definitely going to be eating it with Siete Foods Tortilla Chips. I talked about my love for them here.
If you’re making tacos tonight for Taco Tuesday, give this a try as a side. It’s quick easy and delish!
