Guacamole

Here's my go-to guacamole recipe.  It's somewhat like the guacamole served in our favorite burrito joint, Chipotle.  Many recipes I've seen for guacamole have lots of garlic and salsa in them, but it's so good to keep it fresh and simple.  It's really important to use fresh lime here; it's definitely worth the extra 40 cents!  Make sure your avacados are ripe, but not mushy.  Again, adjust the seasoning to taste...and you may want to make a double batch if you're dipping with chips.

Guacamole

2 medium ripe Hass Avacados
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients and mash together with a fork.  Keep it chunky if you like or mash until smooth.

  1. I've always been scared of guacamole. Green . . . different. Then we had it at a restaurant recently. I loved it. The baby loved it. We'll have to try making our own. Thanks.
