I used to have a video post showing how I liked to make my Guacamole but it was one of the videos I lost in my big video crash! So in the words of Snookie(from the Jersey Shore)...
Waaaahhhhhh!!!(oh don't even pretend like you haven't seen it).
Everyone seems to have a favorite way to make Guacamole and this is by far my favorite!
These are some simple guidelines I use to get my Guacamole just the way I like it:
1. Garlic. I'm a big flavor girl, SO I like big flavor guacamole. Translation = lots of garlic!
2. Scallions. I prefer the milder flavor of scallions over onions in my guacamole (I'm kind of contradicting my big flvor theory here BUT trust me, it works!).
3. No tomatoes. I like to garnish with tomatoes but I never stir them in - they tend to add too much liquid. (If you really like tomatoes in your guac, then I suggest removing the seeds first [something I do not have the patience to do!]).
4. Cilantro. People either love it or hate it! I love it.
I'm gonna serve my Guacamole with some baked chips and a big pot of Spicy Veggie Chili (a recipe I'll be sure to share if it turns out good!).
2 fat cloves of garlic, minced (about 1/2 tsp)
3 scallions, minced(about ¼ cup)
1/4 jalapeno, minced (more or less depending on your taste)
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
The juice from 1/2 a lime (possibly more depending on how juicy
A fat pinch of salt
Combine the garlic, scallions and jalapeno in a medium bowl.
Add in avocado and lime and then using the back of your fork, mash the avocado in with the rest of the ingredients until you have a nice chunky consistency.
Season with a little salt and adjust to your taste.Enjoy!!
