How to Make Guacamole




About: [ Read my Forkable food blog] I am a busy gal, with working and socializing, but cooking delicious home made food is a priority. It can sometimes be hard to fit it all in, so I am ...

Guacamole, a staple for any party or taco time, is easy to make and even easier to eat.

Step 1: Assmeble Ingredients

Place meat of three avocados in a bowl. Click here for my instructable on peeling an avocadoinstructable on peeling an avocado.

1 tomato (remove seeds and liquid center if you don't want your guac to get all liquidy)
2 - 3 green onions
1 small jalapeno (remove seeds! or your mouth will be burnin)
handful of cilantro

Place chopped ingredients in bowl and add:
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

I also had some corn laying around, so I cut it from the husk and threw it in.

Step 2: Mash It Up!

Mash up the ingredients. I find a potato masher works best, but using large spoon or fork will work too!

Step 3: Flavor the Guacamole

I like to flavor the Guac after mixing. This way, lightly mix in flavors and directly taste how the flavors are mixing.

Using a reamer (a fork works too), add the juice of 1 or 2 limes depending on how much acidity you like. I like a lot so I always add at least 2. Then add pepper to taste.

Mix and taste again. If you need to add any salt or more lime, do it. Maybe you need some hot sauce, do it. Perhaps it needs a bit more onion or cilantro. Trust your own judgment and taste your way.

Step 4: EAT IT!

Take a chip. Dip it. Eat it. Yum.

      If you get Avocado's that are not ripe enough, put them in the microwave for a min or so....keep checking and repeat and it will get soft. They will taste great! Just refrigerate to cool them off but they will be ready to use right away.

      Don't use tomatoes use "tomatillo", and don't use jalapeño try to get "chille verde" or "serrano" peppers and your guacamole would taste incredible.

      You should include information about the ripeness of the avocado. We went out and bought avacados and they were hard as a rock and we could not mash them. We later found that this was because they were not yet ripe, so we found riper ones and we are trying it tonight.

      None can also make guacamole with asparagus.......cook it a little and mash it up/food process it......

      Mmmmm. We used to have a nacho hat - not sure what happened to it, though.

      We grate a couple of cloves of garlic into our guac, and sometimes add a bit of mushed chipoltle in adobo sauce, or some roasted tomatoes.

      For mashing, one of those slotted/pierced serving spoons can help you mash against the curved side of a bowl quite nicely.
