One of my absolute favorite things to make is homemade guac – perfect for patio weather, boating, Mexican night and basically any time because duh, guac is delicious.
What You Need
- 3 ripe avocados
- 2 roma tomatoes
- 1 small yellow onion
- 1 jalapeno
- a handful of cilantro
- 1 tbsp garlic (approximately)
- juice of one lime (or to taste)
- salt + pepper to taste
Dice onion, tomato, garlic, jalapeno and cilantro, mash avocados into a large mixing bowl. Add salt, pepper and lime juice and stir until your preferred consistency. I like to leave a couple of chunks, for optimal dipping. If you’re not into spice – you can remove the seeds and ribs of the jalapeno or just use half. I love a little kick so we keep it all in there, and sometimes even add a dash or two of Tabasco to really heat things up. I also go heavy on the lime and salt – I find that it really brings out the best in the other ingredients, and it’s freaking delicious. Grab some chips and fresh veggies and enjoy, you won’t regret it!
