So not to toot my own horn but (toot, toot) I’ve been told that my guac is pretty bomb. It’s a become a summer staple in my family and they demand that I make it every time we get together. As long as you have ripe avocados, it’s super easy to make and it’s always a crowd pleaser.
2 ripe Haas avocados
1/2 tomato (or a handful of cherry tomatoes in this case)
1/8 red onion
salt and pepper
Dice tomato and red onion, and add to bowl of avocado. squeeze 1/2 a lime all over and then mix/mash until it gets to a good consistency. I like to leave larger chunks in the guac. Add garlic powder and s&p to taste. Throw some diced tomatoes on the top if you want to get fancy. Bon appetit!
tips & tricks
A ripe avocado should have a little “give”. Hold it in your hand and press with your thumb for a ripe test : )
If you’re not serving up the guac immediately, leave the pit in the guac (don’t forget to take it out!), top it off with extra lime juice and cover it tightly with saran wrap. Make sure there is no air between the guac and the saran wrap – that’s when it gets brown and no one likes brown guac.
Add s&p to taste- start with a little salt and add more as needed
Guac is so fun because every makes it differently- try adding some grilled pineapple for a sweeter guac, or add some jalapeno and/or cayenne pepper for a spicy kick
Red Hot Blues are my go-to chip to serve with guac
