My guacamole recipe is simple and delicious! Ripe creamy avocados are mixed with lime juice, purple onion, cilantro, and spices into a chunky style guacamole that sticks to the chips. Don't let sour cream come near this baby!
Course: Appetizer, Side Dish, Snack
1/2cuppurple onionfinely diced
1/8-1/4cupof fresh cilantrochopped
juice of 1/2 a limereserve the other half for adjusting the acidity after mixing
1pinchof kosher salt
Cut the avocados around the circumference and discard the seeds.
Scoop out the flesh and place into a large mixing bowl.
Add the juice of 1/2 a lime and with a fork or potato masher, mash the avocado until mixed. I like my guacamole chunky, but you can mix it until smooth.
Add the diced onion, cilantro, salt, and spices. Mix well.
Adjust the salt and lime juice to taste.
Tip for taking out an avocado seed- place the cut avocado in a thick dish towel. Grab firmly and take a sharp knife and "hit" the seed very very carefully! Don't cut your hand. Slowly twist the knife in the seed and lift. Voila!
