Prepare the perfect guacamole!

 

 

  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 Tbsp of fresh lime juice 

  • 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup of onion 

  • 1 serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, minced

  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (leaves and tender stems), finely chopped

  • A dash of grated black pepper

  • 1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped

 

 

Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado.

(Don't overdo it! The guacamole should be a little chunky.)

Garnish with salt and a lime wheel.

 

Add salt, lime juice, and the rest: Sprinkle with salt and lime (or lemon) juice.

The acid in the lime juice will provide some balance to the richness of the avocado

and will help delay the avocados from turning brown.

 

Add the chopped onion, cilantro, black pepper, and chiles. Chili peppers vary individually in their hotness. So, start with a half of one chili pepper and add to the guacamole to your desired degree of hotness.

 

Remember that much of this is done to taste because of the variability in the fresh ingredients.
