Muy Bueno Guacamole!'m not usually one to toot my own horn, but I do think I know where my strengths lie.  And one of those strengths is my guacamole making skills.  Maybe not so marketable in the real world, but, hey, I can create one heck of a nosh as Jen previously mentioned.  Since Cinco de Mayo just passed and I spent it running 10 miles at the Broad Street Run instead of sipping margaritas, I am postponing my observation of this Mexican themed holiday to doce de mayo (May 12th) and making this delicious dip on this upcoming Saturday for a family party. 

Truth time... this is one of those recipes that you have to master with a trial by error approach.  A little of this, a little of that, some taste testing in between and your guacamole will end up deliciously individualized to your particular taste.  A few things I do add which may set it apart are olive oil and fresh lime juice.  I don't know why but the fresh lime juice rather than the prepared kind you get in the plastic lime makes a huge difference for me. 

So below is the ingredient list for my guacamole.  The directions are simple - just combine them all until you achieve the taste you want and serve with chips.  Taste testing throughout is encouraged!


Guacamole Ingredients
  • 4 Haas avocados - Make sure they are dark in color and soft when squeezed.
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1-2 limes for juicing
  • Salt
  • Cilantro
  • 1 jalepeno pepper finely diced (optional based on how much heat you want)
  • 1 small onion very finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove pressed or minced
