Best Tasting Guacamole TIPS

Buy high quality Haas avocados. When choosing your avocados choose ones that are blemish free and have a slight give when squeezed lightly.

ONLY USE FRESH INGREDIENTS. Seriously, do not put in canned tomatoes, fake lemon juice, dried cilantro or garlic powder; it ruins it. Some use lemon and some use lime in their guacamole, just use what you like - but make sure it's fresh.

As I said above, the trick to perfect guacamole is using good, ripe avocados. Check for ripeness by gently pressing the outside of the avocado.

If there is no give, the avocado is not ripe yet and will not taste good. If there is a little give, the avocado is ripe. If there is a lot of give, the avocado may be past ripe and not good. In this case, taste test first before using.



These recipes are just guidelines, so if you love heat or cilantro, please feel free to add more.

EASY GUACAMOLE RECIPE

3 fresh ripe avocados - peeled, pitted, diced
1 Roma tomato, seeded and chopped
3 TBS fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
1/4 cup sweet onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped (optional)
1 fresh lemon (or lime), juiced
1 tsp kosher salt
ground pepper to taste

In a large bowl, mash the avocados and add the lime juice and salt; mix well to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover tightly and chill for at least 1 hour before serving.



SALSA GUACAMOLE

For a very quick guacamole just take a 1/4 cup of fresh salsa and mix it in with your mashed avocados. Delicious.  I like my guacamole chunky - but you can mash and stir until you reach your desired consistency.

I love putting this simple guacamole appetizer on top of tacos instead of tomatoes and lettuce.  I do put jalapenos inside the taco and spread sour cream on one side of the taco with a knife.  Nothing like a little spice with cool sour cream.

We eat this often.  I grow my own cilantro and nothing beats fresh like this does.  Takes the flavor up a notch.  You can top anything you wish to with this fresh guacamole.  Delicious on grilled chicken or fish too.
