Guacamole. Seriously, this is one of those foods that I just can’t stop eating, no matter how much I tell myself to stop. I made a double batch of this the other night to have with my pork tacos. I ate so much chips and guac before dinner that I only ate 1 hard shell pork taco for dinner, I was already that full.
The photos show twice as much in terms of ingredients then I’m listing below. Below is my recipe is for a single batch of guac. (We had 6 adults here on Friday night and my “double batch” it wasn’t completely gone at the end of the night). If you want to make a double batch, simply use 2x the amount of ingredients listed.
Notes: a single batch is good for 2-4 people, a double batch is good for 4-8 people.
2 ripe avocados
1/2 yellow onion
juice from 1/2 lime
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Peel your avocados, remove pit. (Save one or both pits and keep in the guac. Helpful tip: this slows down the browning of your guac).
2. Dice your tomato and onion.
3. Add your tomato and onion to your avocados.
4. Smash your avocados with a fork, leaving some small chunks.
5. Squeeze lime into guacamole. (Start with 1/4 a lime if you don’t like too much lime flavor and continue adding to taste. I like 1/2 a lime squeezed into mine).
6. Add salt and pepper to taste. (For a single batch, I would do 30 “grinds” of each of my salt and pepper grinders. I have no real measurement for this. Again, start with less and taste-test to your desired flavor). Notes: you don’t have to use salt and pepper grinders, normal is fine too.
7. Stir until well combined.
ENJOY with your favorite tortilla chip or taco!
