This guacamole recipe is one that is sure to be one of the dishes that bring your kids back home from college missing your cooking! It’s THAT good. The best part of this recipe is how simple and fresh it is! Probably the only difficult thing will be finding those elusive “perfectly ripe avocados.” Is it just me or does it feel like the sweet spot window between hard, green avocado and molding, spot ridden avocados is about five minutes long?!? Anyways, I can’t control it so let’s get on to the GUAC!
Here’s what you’ll need to get started, are you ready? because it’s so simple you might miss it! Tools: cutting board, knife, bowl, fork. Okay, now that the tools are in hand, let’s talk ingredients! Avocados, tomato, green onion, jalapeño, cilantro, salt & pepper to taste–and that’s all folks!
I start out by slicing the avocados in half, then to get the pit out I tap it with the knife and twist (if they’re ripe, it should work like a charm!) be careful during this part, it’s easy to wrestle an avocado into a dangerous situation for your hands so please use caution! I should add here that if you realize your avocados are either too green or ridden with bruised spots, it’s best to change gears and try again tomorrow after getting the right avocados. I’ve made this guac with both out of desperation for how delicious it is and have been sorely disappointed by using an avocado at the wrong developmental stage.
Now that your avocados are sliced and the pits are removed, add them to your bowl and you can mix a little now but if you want to save your strength to mix it all up at once, that also works well. Next you’ll add the sliced tomato, sliced green onions, jalapeño and give it a really good mix, until the guacamole takes on a smooth and creamy texture. To finish it all off you just add salt & pepper to taste.
