Guacamole

Guacamole is one of those dishes you never completely understand why Mexicans make all the fuss about it until you try a fresh one. And then you suddenly get it…

It’s amazing as an appetizer, served with drinks or as a part of a tortilla filling, of course.

And immensely simple and quick to make. All you need is ripe avocado, limes, chili and few other staples you can find in every kitchen – tomato, onion, garlic, salt and parsley.

Guacamole is originally made with coriander leaves, but it’s also really tasty made with parsley, which you can find in every garden.

 

Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 medium or 1 large tomato
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeño chili (or any other, to your taste)
  • 2 tbls of chopped cilantro or parsley leaves
  • salt

Method

    1. Cut tomato, chili and onion in small dice (2-3 mm or larger, if you like bigger chunks in your guac).
    2. Cut avocados in half, remove the seed and scoop the flesh out into a small bowl. With a fork, mash avocado flesh into a paste (as smooth or as lumpy as you like).
    3. Add onion, minced garlic, tomato, cilantro and chili (add as much or as little as you like, depending on the spice level and your taste) and mix well. Add lime juice and salt to your taste.

All you need now is some tortilla chips 🙂

Enjoy!
