How to make guacamole
Your first task is choosing ripe avocados that can be easily mashed into guacamole. Choose avocados with darker skin that slightly yield to gentle pressure. Once you have found the perfect avocado, cut the avocado in half length-wise around the pit. Twist the halves apart.
To remove the pit, place your index and middle finger on the green flesh to the sides of the pit. Place your thumb on the back of the avocado and put pressure behind the pit until the pit pops out. Using a spoon, gently slide along the edges and scoop the flesh of the avocado out of the skin, and place it into a medium-sized bowl. Using a fork or potato masher mash the avocado until there are small chunks remaining.
Add the diced red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Mix into the mashed avocado until evenly distributed.
How to serve
We love to eat this guacamole with tortilla chips, but the options for serving it are endless! We love it with tacos, quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas, taquitos, and as a topping on a salad, burrito bowl, or burger. It is also delicious as a dip for fresh veggies!
Here are a few of our other dishes that pair well with this guacamole:
- Baked Chicken Taquitos
- Barbecue Bacon Avocado Turkey Burgers (using the guacamole instead of the avocado slices)
If you don’t end up using all of the guacamole you’ve made, we recommend putting the leftovers in a bowl or Tupperware container and smooth out the top so there is a flat surface. Pull out some plastic wrap and place a piece directly onto the guacamole and cover it completely. If there is a little bit of brown on top the next day, don’t worry! Scrape the thin brown layer off with a spoon to reveal the still-fresh and bright green guacamole below. Good as new!
