Classic Guacamole

Recipe by mikedachef
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 4-6 Cups




  • Separate avocados into a medium bowl. Mash using fork. Add pressed garlic and mix.
  • Finely mince a handful of cilantro. I've never measured cilantro in my life so I don't know how many tablespoons it is, but maybe close to half a cup. Add cilantro and mix.
  • Add 1/4 cup of finely chopped red onion and mix. The reason your mixing every time is to further mash the avocado and of course to mix the flavors.
  • Start boiling a small pot of water. Split jalapeno into quarters and remove the seeds. Finely chop the jalapeno add and mix. Slit an X in the bottom of your tomato and dip in boiling water for 30-45 seconds and immediately place under cold running water. Remove skin starting at your X.
  • Slice tomato into 8ths and remove seeds. Dice and place into bowl and mix. Slice lime in two against the grain and drain using salad fork.
  • Mix in salt and pepper, cover, and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. I know some people say to eat guacamole right after prep, but the ingredients need time to marinate. Remove and enjoy with tortilla chips.
