Guacamole 101

I love guacamole!  Not the soupy stuff that is served at all the Mexican restaurants.  I love chunky, colorful, guacamole.  So, I reviewed a few recipes and watched it made on a few of the food shows then I decided to try to make my own.  I must say, “It was successful!”

Here are the ingredients for guacamole for two (maybe three.) So, unless you have a crowd to feed, this will be just enough for a treat!

2 medium size ripe avocados

3 tablespoons of yellow onion (fine chopped)

2 Roma tomatoes (medium chopped)

2 tablespoons cilantro (rough chopped)

1 serrano pepper (finely chopped) ribs and seeds removed first

Peel avocados, remove seed and place in a medium size bowl.

Mash the avocados with a fork leaving different sizes of chunks.

Add all the ingredients except the tomatoes.

After mixing all ingredients (don’t mix so much that it becomes mushy) add the tomatoes.  Don’t over mix them.


Tip:  Since avocados turn brown easily, if you put the seed down in the guacamole, it will not turn brown quickly.  Cover tightly with plastic wrap.

Tip:  A ripe avocado will be brown and firm but slightly indents when pressure is applied with your thumb.
