I don’t know about you, but for hubby and I taco night isn’t complete without guacamole. Whether it’s for chip dipping or slathering it on a taco (or go wild and use it for both) it’s always a must. This guacamole recipe uses simple ingredients and doesn’t take long to make. Not to mention it’s super easy.
I’ve made this so many times over the years and it’s always a crowd pleaser (and a hubby pleaser). It’s creamy, chunky and fresh with just the right amount of onions, cilantro, salt and lime. Some variations have jalapenos and tomatoes, feel free to add those if you want, but I like to keep it simple with the avocados being the star.
Guacamole isn’t just great for those crunchy tortilla chips or those insanely delicious tacos, but it can take a simple hot dog (Hot Dogs with Guacamole and Bacon) or cheeseburger ( Chorizo Cheese Burger with Guacamole) and turn it into a flavor bomb.
So if your ready to make your own, grab a bag of your favorite tortilla chips and here’s what you need to make your own ( you might find yourself having to double it because it’s hard to stop eating it.):
*2 large avocados
*3 TBS, onions, minced or more to taste
*1/4 cup chopped cilantro or more to taste
*1/4 tsp. salt or more to taste
*juice of 1/2 of a lime or more to taste
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon and place into a bowl and add in some of the cilantro. With a fork, mash until desired consistency.
I like to add in a little of the cilantro while I’m mashing the avocado because to me it gives it a little extra flavor rather than mixing it all in whole.
Add in the onion, the remaining cilantro, salt and the lime juice.
On a side note, I use one of these handy mini choppers for the onions. It does a great on getting the onions to the perfect consistency.
You can always do it by hand of course, but I like the onions to be well minced.
Mix all of the ingredients together. Taste and add more if needed.
Keep covered with plastic wrap before serving. The plastic wrap should lay against guacamole as well as covering the bowl. This keeps it from turning brown.
Serve as a dip for tortilla chips, as a topping for your favorite Mexican dishes or anything else that your taste buds might want liven up with this delicious guacamole.
