The Best Guacamole Recipe

I don't think I say very often...wow this recipe is sooo good that I came up with. This guacamole recipe is the exception. It is 100% mine and it is one of my most requested recipes from friends and family I share it with. I have made it many different ways but this seems to be the winning recipe. The secret? Lime juice and garlic salt. My biggest complaint of basically all guacamole in the whole world is the lack of salt thus leaving it lack luster.

I only recently gained an appreciation for guacamole and though it may be blasphemous to say, I still don't like avocados. I don't love the texture and taste (or lack thereof in my opinion) of an avocado.

However, combine that avocado with cilantro, tomato, lime, garlic salt and some tortilla chips and then I love avocados. But only in this one situation.

I hope you like them in this situation too. On a chip. In your mouth. Mmmmm. Make this guacamole for football season and you will make some instant friends. Or sit on your couch with your hubby and consume inhale it while watching Transformers with a bottle of Jarritos. To each his own.





The Best Guacamole Recipe
recipe by The Apron Gal

Serves 4

Ingredients
2 large ripe avocados
2 roma tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup scant chopped onion
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Directions

Finely chop cilantro and onions and add to medium sized bowl along with freshly squeezed lime juice and garlic salt. Add roughly chopped tomatoes and stir gently.

Cut avocados in half. On the side without the pit, make lines up and down and across (this is called scoring) the avocado meat. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado and drop in the aforementioned bowl. For the sides with the pit, carefully using a knife, stick the pit with the knife and pull it out. Repeat scoring the rest of the avocados and add to the bowl.

Gently stir together until desired consistency/chunkiness is reached. I like mine chunky, but not too chunky (because of my dislike of straight avocado).

If you are like me, just add a hint more lime juice and a hint more garlic salt when your husband isn't looking. 

Serve with tortilla chips or on tacos and enjoy!
