I love guacamole and with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner who wouldn’t love to make their own? It’s fun to go out that night but then you have to deal with the crowds, the noise, and waiting hours just to get a table. I know I’ve been through this. So, why not just stay home and make your own Mexican fiesta? That’s what I’ll be doing this year. Make tacos, burritos, margaritas and guacamole! Today I will share with you my guacamole recipe. I absolutely love cilantro and so mine has lots in it. I think cilantro adds something amazing to many dishes. So, my recipe has lots and lots of fresh cilantro in it. And remember, guacamole isn’t just for Cinco de Mayo, you can serve it at any party! If trying to be figure friendly but still want to have a little fun serve guacamole at your next fiesta! Avocado is a good fat so eat this before going for that onion dip.
- 3 avocados peeled, pitted and mashed
- 1 lime juiced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup onion diced
- 2 roma tomatoes diced
- 2 teaspoons garlic minced
- 5 tablespoons of fresh cilantro chopped
In a medium sized bowl, mash the avocados, salt and lime juice using a hand masher or pestle and mortar. Mix in onion, garlic, tomatoes and cilantro. Refrigerate for 1 hour for the best flavor or serve immediately.
Little secret: if not eating immediately place the pit of one avocado in the bowl and refrigerate, this will help the guac not its change color because after awhile guacamole tends to darken and become a sort of gross looking color…LOL! My friend Roseann’s husband told me about this and it works!
If you like it spicy add some ground cayenne pepper until preferred spiciness is achieved! I like mine on the mild side.
Serve with your favorite chips! Enjoy!
