I know. Everyone knows how to make guacamole, right? That’s what I thought. But then I remembered that there’s tons of different versions of guacamole going around, because everyone these days worships at the altar of the almighty avocado. And some guacamole is just downright bad, even though it’s probably the hardest recipe to screw up. Yet screw it up some restaurants do (I’m looking at you, pseudo-Tex Mex place down the street from my apartment!)
So, I thought it might be helpful to share this recipe, this almost effortless make-it-with-your-eyes-closed-when-you’re-eighty-guacamole recipe. So here it is: the recipe for the easiest, home-run-hit-out-of-the-park-every-damn-time guacamole. Go forth, my friends, and eat.
total time: 5 minutes
total hands-on time: 5 minutes
What you’ll need:
- 3 avocados
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup onions, diced
- 1/2 of a large tomato, diced
- 1/2 a bunch of cilantro, cut into small pieces
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- kosher salt to taste (make sure it’s kosher, or sea salt, not iodized salt!)
- garlic powder to taste
What you’ll do:
1. Put all of these things together in a bowl and mix them until they look like guacamole.
Nothing earth-shattering, I know. Just simple and classic, perfect guacamole for parties or gatherings or eating straight out of the bowl at 3 am, shhh that wasn’t me (Yes, it was). Put the pit from the avocado in the bowl if you’d like the mixture to keep from browning.
