The key to making delicious guacamole is making it simple and fresh. With just a few essential ingredients, this guacamole is easy to make and will be a hit with your friends & family! This serving is for 2-4 people.
Step 1: Ingredients & tools
Ingredients : You'll need 2 ripe avocados, 1/4 of a large red onion, 2 cloves garlic, half bunch of cilantro, half a lime, salt and pepper. For spicy guacamole, add 1/4 of a small spicy green pepper.
Tools: You will need a medium-sized mixing bowl, a spatula (wood spatula is best), a chopping knife, a cutting board, a spoon, and of course, CHIPS!
Step 2: Split
Cut your avocado's in half by dragging your knife around the avocado, length-wise just enough to slice through the skin and avocado meat. Open avocados, remove pit, and scoop the meat into the mixing bowl.
Step 3: Chop
Chop 1/4 of a large red onion (about a handful) and mince 2 cloves of garlic. Add both into mixing bowl. If you are adding 1/4 of a small spicy green pepper, now is the time to chop it up and add.
Note: This can also be done quicker in a mini food processor! Just throw in red onion, garlic, and spicy pepper (if using) and chop away with the press of a button. Chop until smooth and no large chunks are visible.
Step 4: Add the good stuff!
One of the best parts of guacamole is the fresh taste of cilantro; I use half a bunch, but you can use less.
The easiest way to chop cilantro is to roll it up into as tight of a ball as you can and chop away. This technique allows for a quicker chopping time, as multiple cuts are made to each stem with each chop!
Add to mixture.
Step 5: Lime
Use a reamer or your hands to squeeze the juice of half a lime into the mixture.
Step 6: Salt & pepper
Throw in some salt & freshly ground pepper to taste. Just a few tosses of both will do; you can always go back in the end and modify it in the end!
