Guac is super easy! It’s fresh, tasty, and a perfect compliment for so many dishes if you’re looking for kicked up flavor. Don’t let the mortar and pestle fool you, good guacamole requires nothing but a couple of pieces from your local produce aisle at the supermarket, a bowl, and a fork!
The Couture Cook’s Guacamole
2-3 Haas Avacados (cut them, seed them, squish them, make sure they’re ripe and ready to go. Mash all of it well)
1 Lime juiced, 1 lemon, juiced
Some Salt, Pepper, and Papricka
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced well
1 Hand Full of Fresh Cilantro, chopped up well
2 Roma Tomatos, gutted and chopped (don’t use pulp and seeds)
1 Red Onion, chopped well
- Toss the Avocados and Lime Juice together well, so all of the avocado is coated, and doesn’t get brown (which doesn’t mean it’s bad, but it doesn’t look very appetizing)
- Mash well and add in spices and garlic completely
- Stir in onion, tomato, and cilantro well
To store, make sure you seal as air tight as possible. I usually put it in glad-ware or something similar, press plastic rap down on the top, then put the lid on and keep it in the refridgerator
