I really LOVE all things avocado, but unfortunately, my husband is really allergic to them. So naturally, I use any party or get together as an excuse to make some delicious homemade guacamole. This recipe is easy to make, and a real crowd pleaser. It is not especially spicy or zesty, and everyone ends out loving it. And if you want to make guacamole with a little more kick, you can easily add hot sauce, more jalapenos, more lime juice, or use a spicier salsa.
Homemade Guacamole Recipe (Serves 3 – 4)
2 Ripe Avocados
3 Tablespoons of Salsa
2 Teaspoons of Finely Diced Jalapenos
1 Tablespoon Chopped Cilantro
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
(Optional: 1 Diced and Seeded Roma Tomato)
1. Make sure you have ripe avocados. Peel and slice them. Mash them somewhat with a spoon.
2. Juice half of a lime. (Seed and dice your tomato). Finely chop your jalapeno and cilantro.
3. Add salsa, cilantro, jalapenos, (tomatoes), sea salt, and lime juice to the avocados. Stir and mix them together carefully, keeping some of the chunks of avocados.
4. Chill for an hour and serve.
TIP: Put the avocado seeds back in the guacamole to help keep it fresh longer in the fridge.
I'm getting hungry just looking at these pics, Rachel. I'm going to have to share this recipe with Mark as he is our expert guac maker in the family. He doesn't usually use cilantro or jalapenos, so we might have to incorporate those next time. And I love the tip about keeping the seed in the avocado to preserve it longer. The lime/lemon juice helps, too!

Yum! I love guac and could sit and eat a whole bowl. That recipe looks great!
