During the warm summer months my family is all about eating outdoors and easy snacks - enter guacamole. We eat this more than I care to admit because it's fast and easy. Whether you're eating it with chips, fish or a taco- you won't have anyone complaining.
Making Guacamole isn't really a science, it's more of an art. Everyone likes their guacamole differently: more salty, spicy, no purple onion, not too much cilantro. You get the idea.
There really is no right or wrong but here is how we make ours.
3 Ripe Avocados (I always grab a paper mushroom bag at the grocery store to help quickly ripen my avocados)
Cilantro - Fresh and chopped to your preference.
Jalapenos - The heat is up to you, keeping the seeds in your jalapenos always dials up the temp.
Salt - To taste
1 - 2 Limes
Tomatoes - Seeded
Purple onion - Diced
I like to mash up my avocado first, then add the lime and salt.
I add the jalapenos and purple onion next.
Add the cilantro.
Once I'm happy with the flavour I add fresh diced tomatoes. I always seed my tomatoes so the guacamole doesn't get too liquidy!
