i consider myself to be an expert on very few things, but guacamole, i know my stuff.
i had a ton of avocados left over from the big brunch that didn’t ripen in time, and i needed a beach snack but was in a rush. GUACAMOLE SAVES THE DAY.
4 ripe avocados
the zest of 1 lime
the juice of 1/2-1 lime (to taste, i tend to use the almost the whole thing)
4 large cloves of garlic, minced fine or grated
a big pinch of salt
tons of black pepper
a handful of chopped cilantro
* EXTRAS/IDEAS (sometimes i change it up)
1 tsp chili paste
handful chopped parsley
1/2 jalapeno, mostly seeded and diced fine
roasted garlic (in addition to the fresh)
red onion diced fine
Put it all in a bowl and mash it with a fork until it’s the way you like it to be. if you aren’t finishing it and want to store it, squeeze some lime or lemon juice over the surface, cover it with plastic wrap (or whatever) and refrigerate.
beach guacamole snacker, eating beach guacamole.
the chips are just cut up flour tortillas that i had in the house that were a big mangled (the cat ate half of them), and toasted them on a pan at 350 until they crisped. EASY STUFF.
*For the beach edition of this guac i used NO cilantro, but did use parsley, diced cherry tomatoes and some chili paste and a bit of extra zest. it was soooo tasty.
