Hi all! Here’s a question for ya: are you a salsa person or a guacamole person? I like salsa, but I looooove guacamole. And I especially love it during the summertime. There’s just something about hanging out in the kitchen on an evening before dinner, having a drink, talking to my peeps, and mashing up some guacamole. Makes me feel festive every time.
So not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think my guacamole “recipe” is the best. I like it with lots of salt, lots of garlic and NO cilantro. I don’t have anything against cilantro or anything, but I personally like my guac without it. So here’s my list of ingredients with guess-and-by-golly measurements.
Best Guacamole Ev-ah!
4 ripe avocados, mashed with a fork
1 large or 2 small cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 T. lime juice (start with 1 and add more if you like)
1/8 to 1/4 c. minced (really fine) red onion (again, start with the smaller amount and add more if you like)
1/2 tsp. to 1 tsp. kosher salt
If you’re a measuring person–I am sometimes–let this recipe liberate you. Who wants to get out measuring spoons and cups when it’s guacamole night? Not me! These flavors go so well together, it’s kinda hard to mess this up. Ole!
