Guacamole is a perfect appetizer for any party or gathering. It tastes exceptionally good when you use fresh ingredients during the summer, but it’s easy to make from winter vegetables that you’ll find in the grocery store. Feel free to play with the ingredients a little bit to customize your version of the best guacamole. Add a little more tomato if you like, and feel free to keep your guacamole a little more on the chunky side. You can also make it as spicy or mild as you like.
Toss everything together lightly. Serve immediately.
Avocados: Cut your avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop out the contents into a large serving bowl.
Lime: Use half of a lime, and juice it into the bowl with the avocado. The lime is for taste, but it also prevents the avocados from turning brown quickly.
Salt: Add ½ teaspoon of salt to the bowl of ingredients.
Onion: Dice ½ cup of onion, and make sure that it is diced very finely. Add to the mixture.
Cilantro: Chop 4 tablespoons worth of fresh cilantro. Add it to the avocado mixture.
Tomatoes: Use 2 small tomatoes, preferably roma-tomatoes or tomatoes on the vine. Dice them small and add them to the guacamole mixture.
Garlic: Mince your garlic and add it to your guacamole.
Hot sauce (substitute 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper): These are optional ingredients if you want to add some heat to your guacamole. You can just as easily leave it out if you want to keep things mild. Only add one of the ingredients.
Serve your guacamole fresh for the best results. It can be stored in the refrigerator as long as you cover it properly. Include corn chips and a variety of vegetables with your guacamole. This can include a platter of carrots sticks, celery, pepper spears, cherry tomatoes (halved) or cucumber slices.
