Guacamole

B and I both LOVE guacamole. Every time that we have Mexican, it’s always there on our table. For the past several years that I’ve been making it, I’ve been searching for the perfect combination of ingredients and have made it differently each time. A few weeks ago, I finally came up with a recipe that we both love, and we both agree that it’s perfect. I really think that this is the best guacamole that I’ve ever had. I’m always disappointed when we order guacamole in a restaurant and it has an almost soupy consistency. This guacamole has a ton of texture and more flavor than any other that I’ve tried. So delicious.

Guacamole
Source: Original recipe

3 avocados
1 roma tomato, seeded and chopped
2-3 slices Vidalia onion, very finely diced
A handful of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
Approximately 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt, but judge this to taste
Juice from 1/2 lime

1. Peel and pit the avocados, and place them into a bowl. Using a potato masher, mash the avocados until smooth.

2. Add the tomato, onion, cilantro, garlic, salt, and lime to the avocado. Stir well to combine.

3. Cover and refrigerate until cold before serving.

4. For leftovers, place the guacamole in the smallest container in which it will fit. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the guacamole, pressing it against the guacamole so that there is no air between the guacamole and the plastic. Cover the container, and store it in the refrigerator. I’ve tried many methods of keeping guacamole fresh, and I was so happy to recently find that this one actually works. A day later, the guacamole is barely discolored.
