You guys, I went out to dinner with my family the other night and I decided to try guacamole for the first time. I know, I know, I’m so late in the game but for heaven sake, why didn’t someone tell me that I’ve been missing out. I will admit, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to try it but always turned it down because of the looks of it. Yup, I am one of those. “If it doesn’t look right, it’s not for me”. Don’t laugh, I would be in a restaurant and notice another patron enjoying it and would think to myself, “Why would anyone eat that green “mush”. “Omg”, it’s so gross! That’s the honest truth. I couldn’t stand looking at it nevermind eating it. hahaha
So you see, it wasn’t appealing for me to try until just recently. Of course when I did try it out, it was in a mexican restaurant and after a few glasses of margaritas, it was chow time.
After a few days later, I was still talking about it to my husband. We pretty much laughed about it because I actually almost consumed the whole bowl of guacamole myself. It’s so amazing! I love it! -And now, I’m on a mission to add it to other foods that I enjoy like hamburgers, chicken, and of course my new favs- Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips. These babies are so good!
For this easy guacamole recipe you will need only a few ingredients. Let’s get started.
- Avocados (chilled)
- White Onions
I think the biggest time saver was picking up avocados that were ripe. Just a little, helps a long way when you’re preparing this appetizer. First, I grabbed my handy dandy motar with pestle and began to cut the avocados right down the middle with a knife. Removing the middle of the avocado with using a spoon and place it in the motar to mush is so easy but it can take a little while, so be patient. Continue to mush the avocado until there is no longer large “chunk” pieces.
Once you have completed that step, then it’s smooth sailing from here. I decided to make this recipe my own but I will admit, some of these ingredients are pretty common when making guacamole.
On a cutting board, I began to chop 1/4 cup of White Onion and Fresh Cilantro then setting them aside in a small bowls. Next, I cut my Roma tomatoes into slices. Removing all seeds and dicing the tomatoes into small pieces. I also did the same for the Jalapeno peppers. Removing all seeds from both is an important step to this recipe.
Begin to add each ingredient in the avocado mixture. Stir and blend all ingredients together with a spoon and mush with your motar if you have one. Finally, cut a fresh lime in half and squeeze the lime juice over your guacamole mixture.
