It’s guacamole season again – and that makes me SO happy! I love guacamole to the point where I will make a bowl of it and have it for dinner. Guacamole is one of those food items where everyone seems to have their own version and they think that their version is the best. (and I’m so modest about it too!).
Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
3 ripe avocados
1 medium tomato
1 large clove garlic
1 large lime segment
Cut the avocados in half, a scoop the insides into a bowl. With a fork mash the avocados until they are relatively smooth. Cut the tomato in the same way you peel an orange. Starting by cutting the top off, then cut around the sides so that you get just the outside layer of the tomato, but not the seeds. Cut the outside into small chunks.
Add the cut tomatoes to the bowl with the avocado. Mince the garlic, quarter the lime, and chop a big bunch of the cilantro - I use almost 1/4 cup in my guac. Add the garlic, squeeze a quarter of the lime into the bowl, and add the cilantro. Add in a few dashes of tobasco.
Mix it all together. Taste it, and add salt if needed. Transfer to a "pretty" bowl for serving. I prefer guacamole chilled, but most of the time can't wait that long.
