I made guacamole this weekend to highlight the benefits of cilantro. It was so good that I might have eaten an insane amount of guac 😬😂🤤🤤
Some people leave out the tomatoes in their guac, but I LOVE tomatoes…some people leave out jalapeños, but I LOVE spice, some people add cumin….I’m not quite a fan of that 😂. So here’s how I made it (which is more of the authentic, Mexican way):
• 2 medium to large ripe hass avocados
• 1/4 cup minced cilantro
• 1 diced roma tomato (or small plum tomato)
• 1/4 cup diced red onion
• 2 Tbsp diced jalapeño, seeds removed (omit or reduce for less spice)
• 2-3 Tbsp lime
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
1- Add ripe avocados in a mixing or serving bowl and mash it with a fork or a mallet until is smooth but has some chunks.
2- Then toss in the rest of the ingredients and mix together. Then taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more lime for acidity or more salt to taste. Serve immediately.
Note: Ripe hass avocados are commonly black in color and SLIGHTLY soft to the press.
