Perfect Guacamole

Updated: Oct 24, 2019


I always seem to have a bunch of avocados sitting on my kitchen counter. My sons love them for a snack by sprinkling them with coarse salt and scooping them right out of the shell. I serve them with eggs, add them to sandwiches, garnish chilis and tacos with them, and slather it on toast. But when guacamole is done right, it's my favorite way to enjoy this silky fruit. Perfect Guacamole is the ideal combination of avocados, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, lime juice, and salt. It's both chunky and smooth and so delicious served with tortilla chips. Some of the tortilla companies make colorful ones around the holidays, which helps make the platter look so festive; if you love guacamole as much as I do this one is for you!


Ingredients for Perfect Guacamole:


3 ripe avocados

2 tablespoons grape tomatoes, seeded and chopped

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

2 teaspoons chopped jalapenos, seeded

3/4 -1 teaspoon kosher salt


Time-Saving Tip: Chop the vegetables in advance so, they are ready when you make the guacamole.


Let's see what we need.

We're ready to cook.


Add the avocados to a bowl; sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon of salt. I like to use the back of a fork to mash the avocado against the bowl. When it is chunky, add the onion, pepper, and tomatoes; stir. Now fold in the cilantro and then the lime juice. Then give it a stir and taste; add more salt and lime juice as needed.


It's ready! Perfect Guacamole is so delicious that it's nearly impossible to stop eating. We seldom have any leftovers, but if you do it's great for toast the next morning.


Enjoy!
