My all-time favorite guacamole. I usually find that store bought guac is, well, gross. And restaurant guac is either too spicy or not spicy enough. Enter my “no real recipe needed, adjust spiciness to your liking, super fresh, super easy” guacamole.
All you need is 6 ingredients (forgot to add the garlic in the picture):
1. About 1/4 of a small onion, finely chopped. And remember, chopping onions is easy peasy.
2. Fresh squeezed lime juice (from a really small lime)
3. One small tomato, diced
4. 1 small serrano pepper
5. 3 ripe avocados
6. 1-2 garlic cloves, depending on your tastes
Essentially, all you need to do is mush the avocados and mix in the chopped onion, squeeze in the lime, add the diced tomatoes, mince the garlic and finely chop the serrano. Add salt to taste. Adjust spiciness by keeping the seeds for some serious kick or removing most of them. I just left a handful of seeds and the guac has just the right amount of spice but my mouth isn’t on fire and my eyes aren’t watering…at least from the spice. Note to self (and to all of you contact wearers out there). Do not. I repeat, do NOT attempt to take your contacts out or scratch your eyes after chopping the pepper. My eyes were on FIRE. Oops!
Fresh, flavorful, easy and completely customizable that beats any pre-made goo some places try to pass as guacamole:)
