Guacamole in a Big Way

There’s nothing like a nice, perfectly ripe avocado. And please don’t tell me you don’t like avocado, or we can’t really be friends.

Just kidding. I do know people who don’t like avocado (and therefore guac…say what??), but I still think they’re crazy.

I like my guac flavorful, with a lot of lime and a bit of a kick. I don’t have very specific measurements for my recipe, since I think cooking is more of an art than anything and I like to taste as I go until I hit the perfect flavor. However, for this post I’ll give rough measurements on how I would make mine. BUT, with cooking you can change, add, and substitute whatever you like…and that’s half the fun. So take these ingredients with a grain of salt (in more ways than one) and alter them how YOU like.

Now for the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/3 red onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 handful cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 20 drops tabasco sauce
  • Salt & pepper

Then it’s pretty simple. Cube and mash the avocado up in a bowl with the onions.

Add in the rest and stir until you reach the right consistency. I’d say I’m at a mid-chunk level where I don’t like it soft and creamy but I also don’t like it so chunky that you don’t taste each ingredient in every bite.

Happy medium.

Cubing the avocado – my favorite part.
