If you're looking for the best homemade guacamole north of Mexico, you've come to the right place. This recipe gets two thumbs up from friend and family! Yum-yum!
Fresh guac is enjoyed on a sunny summer's day ... but, really, any day will do.
If you're lucky enough to have traveled to Mexico, you'll be hard-pressed to find a store-bought guacamole that will satisfy when a craving hits. The secret to this delicious creamy goodness is fresh cilantro. So, don't forget to grab a bunch of this leafy, flavour-laden herb when you're at the grocery store filling your cart with colourful, wholesome ingredients.
Only the freshest ingredients will do for this delicious homemade guacamole.
4 ripe avocados
3 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
8 dashes Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup small diced red onion
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tsp kosher salt (ground sea salt works, too)
1 medium tomato, seeded and diced small
4-6 sprigs of cilantro, shred leaves only (discard stalks)
Note: Don't discard the avocado pits! The pits will help the guacamole keep its fresh, green colour. When mixture is complete and ready to chill, sit pits in the guacamole before covering and placing in the fridge. Remove pits before serving.
Peel, pit, and mash ripe avocados until smooth and creamy. Set pits aside.
Fold each ingredient into the mixture.
Sit avocado pits in the guacamole, cover, and place in fridge to chill.
Once chilled (about an hour) remove pits, serve and enjoy with your fave corn chips.
