Holy Guacamole – you’ll want to try this

guacomole

If you’re anything like me, you love Mexican food and anything that involves guacamole. And because I love guacamole, I pride myself in making the best in town for any get-together.  Every summer when my family goes on vacation, we have an ‘appetizer night on the beach’, and everyone makes a dish. My go-to app (and #1 requested) is the GUAC. It’s so good, easy to make, and gets the fiesta goin’.  ¡Ñam ñam!

INGREDIENTS (serves 6-8)

  • 5 ripe avocados
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, diced
  • 1 1/2 limes, juiced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, fresh, snipped
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, mash avocados until desired consistency. I personally like my guacamole a little chunky. Add diced tomatoes, diced red onion, diced jalopeño, lime juice (the more the better), cilantro leaves, salt and chopped garlic. Mix together. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips and enjoy!
