The Perfect Guacamole
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 plum tomato, small diced
  • a handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped red onion
  • juice from 1 lime, 2 if not very juicy
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Now to get that thing opened up and get the yummy goodness out. With a sharp knife push into the avocado until you hit the pit then cut all the way around. Twist the two sides in opposite directions and pull apart. Slice the inside in both vertical and horizontal direction, as shown above.
  2. In a bowl squeeze the juice of one lime. Using a spoon scoop out the cubes into the bowl. Toss the avocado to coat. The acidity will prevent the avocado from oxidizing, or turning brown.
  3. Now that pit. Using a sharp knife, with the avocado resting on the counter of a flat dish not in your hand, tap the blade firmly into the pit. Twist the knife and pull the pit out. Repeat the above steps. Now get a potato masher and mash the avocados to your desired consistency. I prefer somewhere between smooth and chunky. Toss in the remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
  4. Serve with chips or serve over grilled BBQ chicken, on top of anything mexican, heck eat it straight out of the bowl its that yummy!!!
