There are a few things I should say about this Best EVER Guacamole Recipe. First, I was really late to the party in terms of guacamole. Just the site of it grossed me out until a few years ago. I know, I live in Texas, how can I say that? Well it wasn’t until a trip I took to Cabo back in ’05 that made me finally appreciate guacamole and now I’m a huge fan. Second, this is not my recipe. It maybe a common way to make it, but to me it is my friend Kandice’s recipe. I hope she doesn’t mind I shared it, but I had a couple of people ask. (For more great recipes from Kandice check out her new blog!)
2 roma tomatoes
1/2 cup red onion
1/2 lemon squeezed
garlic salt, to taste
kosher salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
I should probably interject here that picking out avocados at the grocery store totally stresses me out. I’m always nervous which I know is silly. Especially when they are for guacamole!
First I cut up the tomatoes (I remove the seeds), then I cut up the onion. I love onions so I like to have it in every bite. I don’t however actually measure out a 1/2 a cup of red onion. Instead, if the onion is a pretty good size I’ll just chop up half, but if it’s a little small then I’ll do a little over half.
Next, I cut the avocados in half and scoop out the insides. I do this one at a time so I can mash the avocado as I go because I like it really mushed up. Once I’ve got all of the avocados smushed I add in the tomatoes and onions and the garlic salt, salt and pepper and really mix it all together. Once it is mixed up really well I squeeze half a lemon on top.
Every time I’ve made this guacamole it has been well received and quickly disappears. Thanks again Kandice for share this Best EVER Guacamole Recipe!
