Holy Guacamole! (so good)

So, I’ve been looking all around for a really good guac recipe and I found two that I thought I’d really like so I sort of combined them. Now, in my house my family loves anything that can be dipped on a chip. I found the recipe which originally only called for 2 avocados which I decided to up everything by 1/2. I made the guac and called my family to test it and by the time we were done “testing” there wasn’t much left for our tacos dinner. So I essentially ended up tripling the recipe to get enough for snacking and our tacos.

My picture of the ingredients is misleading I ended up use more that what is shown and my cilantro is missing from the shot but by the time I experimented to find enough of a portion size for my family and enough of the right flavors there wasn’t anything left to take a picture of. So I started out with typical ingredients for the guac and what I found that makes it perfect is as follows.


6 avocados

5-6 seeded Serrano peppers

1 whole red onion

1 whole medium sized tomato

about 1 teaspoon of minced cilantro

the juice for 3 limes

salt and pepper to taste

1.So to make this is really simple cut the avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avocado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl. If you’re unsure as to how to go about handling the avocados here is a helpfulĀ  video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAAMx_R523o .

2.After you cut the avocado, mince the peppers and remember to cut out the middle with the seeds, unless you’d like your mouth to set fire. I left probably 4 or 5 seeds in mine because I do like heat. Also you can choose to pick a milder pepper like a jalapeno. Add to the mixing bowl.

3. Mince the onion and cilantro. Add them to the mixing bowl.

4. Finely dice the tomato and add to the mixing bowl.

5. Thoroughly juice 3 limes into the bowl and mix with a spoon.

6. Salt and pepper it to your liking and enjoy!

Make sure that when you are storing you get a piece of saran wrap and put it directly on the guac so that oxidization doesn’t occur.

This is probably the best guacamole recipe that I’ve made and according to my father the best that he has ever had. I’m not sure if he’s right but, I don’t know how it could be better!
