Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

My Guacamole recipe goes like this (super easy, no measuring) - one avocado, peeled and lightly mashed, 1/2 tsp of mayo, a squirt of mustard, a dash of salt and pepper, a dash of lime juice and mix.  Add a tsp of your favourite salsa at the end and lightly mix again!  Bam! Guacamole.

My best, fastest and often the cheapest recipe is taking a walk to my nearest Chipotle (or a Mexican restaurant nearby), ordering Guacamole as a side, and taking it home.

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

Three good sized avocados, one lime, salt, bit of freshly ground black pepper, and 1/4 cup of finely chopped purple onion (or vidalia).  Make sure that the avocados are ground to a smooth consistency (details are everything in cooking).  The only problem with this recipe is that the end result only lasts less than 10 minutes due to voracious family members!

 

Don't forget to put the seeds in with the guac if you are not going to eat it right away; this will help the green stay green instead of oxidzing to brown.

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

I love my Guacamole this way:

 

  • 2 Avocados, a little soft to touch but not too ripe, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 Roma tomato cut into 2 pieces
  •  1/8 cup Red onion cut into small pieces
  • 1/8 cup Cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Lime and lemond juice

Put them in a blender and mix until the texture you like.

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

I love guac and make it all the time. I use the following ingredients:

  • 2 avacados
  • salt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • small amount of cilantro finely chopped (or herb of your choice)!
  • grated black pepper
  • 1/2 tomato, chopped

I find that the cilantro really provides a refreshing taste to it and freshly ground black pepper makes all the difference to give it that spice to accompany the lime juice zing.

 

I have also tried adding diced mangoes (because I love them), and it surprisingly works quite well.

Couple of ripe avocadoes, a little chopped red onion, a little chopped tomatoes, a few squeezes of lime, sprinkling of salt and pepper and done! Mmmm... need to go buy some chips now...

This is what I do, usually without measuring anything:

 

Avocado

Squeeze of lime

Sour cream

garlic powder

cumin

Cilantro/tomatoes/onions if I have them.

Re: Guac On! National Guacamole Day is Around the Corner.

The best I've ever made was some quickly mucked up avocado with a bit of onion, garlic and tomato. Wasn't the greatest but it did the trick!
