Not much of a title. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Eat your fill today. This is a post on a quick guacamole I whipped up recently. Homemade fresh salsa is so insanely delicious and easy to make that I wonder why more people don’t make it. Don’t buy that jar stuff! Make your own! It takes a bit of chopping but the end result is so worth it. How do I make my guacamole? It’s basically my salsa recipe with avocado mixed in – that’s really what guacamole is right??
I’ll share some pictures of the guacamole shaping up…and the recipe will follow.
HUGE avocado means plenty guacamole.
Here are most of the ingredients chopped and ready to go. If I had the resources, I would have flash rinsed the onion and garlic with boiling water. It helps to cut down the strong flavors that might overpower the salsa/guacamole.
Ah yes…ready for all the tortilla chips…
3 medium tomatoes, diced
1/2 maui onion, diced
1 bunch of cilantro, leaves picked and chopped (don’t use too much of the stalks)
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1-2 limes, juiced (according to your taste)
salt and pepper to taste
1 large avocado, diced (if you’re making guacamole)**
After dicing onion and garlic, place in a hand-held mesh strainer and pour boiling hot water over it. Combine all ingredients together and add salt and pepper to your taste.
**Guacamole, add avocado and mash in with the rest of the ingredients (with your hands of course!) and then you have guacamole!
