It’s known in the neighborhood that I make some pretty slammin’ guacamole. I actually used to hate guacamole until I found out how something so full of fat could be so good for you. It was then I increased my fried food intake as well but have not gotten the desired results.
Guacamole is essentially just a pulverized avocado with some chunks and bits and tasty spices mixed in. When I first got into cooking about a year ago, guacamole was one of the first things I made successfully on my own. Here’s what I’ve found to make the guacamole my friends salivate over and fall into food comas for.
This is a total teaser, sorry. I also like to know how shows end, I read the last pages of a book first and lover spoiler alerts.
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am a story killer.
1 large avocado
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1-2 freshly squeezed limes
(to avoid killing your hands, see how to properly juice)
1 half chopped red onion
8-10 chopped cherry tomatoes
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
A pinch of salt and pepper
If the avocado isn’t that ripe you can also add some olive oil to give it some moisture when you mash it.
I have recently stopped using my sick ass Ninja blender to mix the ingredients because it makes the guacamole too smooth. Yes, there is such a thing and the Ninja does it. I am anal about textures and when I use my Kung Fu blender, the texter tastes as smooth as cream cheese. Not cool. I like my guac to have a surprise chunk or two here and there.
Tonight I used a potato masher which worked like a charm.
From here it’s pretty easy. Chop the red onion, tomatoes and cilantro and add them into the bowl with the avocado. Spoon in the garlic and the lime juice you death gripped out of the limes. Yes, I’m having issues with my pictures again. Once all of your ingredients are in the bowl, mix well and add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with chips shaped like tiny bowls so you can eat as much as possible and feel shameful by bedtime.
