Guacamole

Guac is a staple in our house. Mainly because we celebrate Taco Tuesday almost religiously. This is a simple 10 min guacamole recipe we engineered over the years.

Ingredients:

  • Avocado
  • Tomato
  • Cilantro
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • Garlic Powder
  • Pepper
  • Jalapeño or Crushed Red Pepper (optional)

If you’re feeling spicy, you can add a jalapeño! We’ll be adding jalapeños from our garden just as soon as they arrive! When we don’t have fresh jalapeños sometimes we add crushed red pepper flakes. We like a lot of spice in our life.

Half the avocado and remove the pit. If the avocado is perfectly ripe you should be able to scoop it out using a spoon with ease. Then dice a tomato. Sometimes I cut the end off of the tomato and squeeze out some of the juice before dicing it. This is the best way to keep the guac from getting watery.

Next into the bowl are spices! We started growing fresh cilantro in our herb garden this year. Fresh cilantro is KEY. As soon as I started cutting it I could smell the zest and it was OUTRAGEOUS. My mouth is watering thinking about the cilantro.

Once you’ve cut the fresh parsley and oregano you can add that to the guac along with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder –these ingredients are to taste. So you can go as heavy or as light on them as you wish.

Once all the ingredients are in you can mash it all together.

We got this molcajete bowl from CostCo when we first got married. It’s incredibly heavy and annoying to store.

When to stop mixing the guacamole is a person preference thing. I do not like guacamole that is pureed. I like it a little chunky. So I stop mashing when it starts to look like this.
