I have eaten A LOT of guacamole in my day, it’s pretty much the base of my food pyramid so trust me when I say, I know good guac, and this guac.. oh it’s good! It’s so good in fact, that it’s my favorite, it is the guacamole recipe that has made me forsake all other recipes. So now that you believe me, lets move on. This recipe does require some effort, but it’s minimal; you basically throw a bunch of yummy ingredients in a blender or food processor to make a super fresh pico, then mix it in with some fresh avocado and bam, you’re in heaven. And as a bonus, you will have some left over pico so serve on the side… fresh guacamole AND salsa.. yes, this is real life.
The Best Guacamole (Print Me)
1/2 red onion, peeled and quartered
1 jalapeno, seeds removed
1 cup cilantro, loosely packed
2 plum or roma tomatoes
3 hass avocados
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon each)
1/4 teaspoon cumin (optional)
Peel and quarter red onion, place in the bowl of food processor or blender. Pulse a few times to coarsely chop. Remove the seeds from a jalapeno, cut into quarters and add to blender. Add the cilantro and pulse a few more times until coarsely chopped. Cut tomatoes in half, remove the seeds, and add to the blender. Pulse a few more times until finely chopped.
Pit avocados and scoop flesh into a separate bowl; add lemon and lime juice, salt, pepper, and cumin if desired.
Add all but about one cup of the pico to avocados and stir until just combined to the taste and consistency of your choice. Enjoy!
