I love, love, love anything Hispanic. I love Hispanic food. I love Hispanic men (well, really just the one I married). And I love guacamole. My mother-in-law makes really good guacamole, the only problem is there isn’t a recipe for it (along with a number of other mouth-watering dishes that she makes). She just sort of throws the right ingredients together and somehow knows when it’s done.
Here is one of those types of recipes.
I have made it quiet a bit, however, and so it’s pretty much down to a science. Sort of.
Anyway, here’s the recipe. It yields nearly a cup and a half, which is usually more than enough for our little family.
3 ripe avocados
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup diced purple onion
Juice of 1-2 limes (depending on how big and juicy they are)
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
Place the peeled avocados in a medium-sized bowl and mash them really well with a fork. Add the tomatoes, cilantro, and purple onion. Squeeze the juice of one lime in the bowl, followed by the salt and pepper. Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly. Then, taste it. If it’s too bitter or sour (due to the lime juice) than add more salt.
That’s it. Super easy. And super yummy too.
I like to eat it with chicken or beef fajitas (which we eat a lot of around my house), on top of nachos, in salads, or even plain. It always hits the spot!
