Guacamole – selfmade

Guacamole – selfmade

Here is a short post how you can make you own delicious guacamole…

My wife loves Guacamole for a long time. Since I am not into Nachos, Chips and such stuff, I was not wild about that green avocado mush. That changed with our vacation in Mexcio in 2017. It tasted so awesome,that I had to make some of my own.

Guacamole: selfmade or bought?

After the vacation I realized that you can buy guacamole in a jar. You can even get a pulver mixture that you have to add somwhere… I don’t even know if you have to add water or avacado. But… what the fuck… It is so easy to do it by your own… I don’t get it, how you can NOT make guacamole by your own… I mean  is super simple and super fast. Ok – Unscrewing a jar is simpler but well, it wont taste that good.
So here we go with the recipe of your selfmade guacamole:

Ingredients:

  • 1 big avocado
  • juice of one lime
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 2 cherry tomatoes
  • fresh cilantro
  • salt
  • pepper

Preperations:

  • chop everything except the avocado in very small pieces.
  • mash the avocado with a fork. – We love it when there is still some structure in it and is is not completley creamy.
  • mix the avocado mush with lime juice before its color change.
  • add the chopped tomatoes, onion, garlic and cilantro to the avocado and mix it well  – You should taste if you like the amount of cilantro. Some people need to get used to it.
  • Finally season it with salt and pepper.
  • Put everything in the fridge and let it cool and develop its awesome taste. – The garlic needs some time to get through everything.

 

Result:

The guacamole tastes super good! It is a simple and fast recipe and a very healthy alternative to cheese dips 😉
It is kinda sad that I discovered this dip so late.

Here is another tip for you: Put the nachos/tortillas/chips in a backing oven and heat them up. They will taste so mcuh better!
