I never really considered making my own guacamole, but the other day I bought too many limes to make this and then, completely forgetting about the avocados that were already in my fridge, I bought several more avocados and, well, you can see where this is going. Guacamole was the next logical step. I borrowed this recipe almost directly from Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook. It’s amazing and you can personalize it as you desire.
Recipe adapted from Cook's Illustrated Cookbook
- Mash the avocado in a medium sized bowl with a fork. Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir, and then season to taste with additional cilantro, onion, jalapeño, lime, garlic and salt. Add a spoonful of tomato salsa if you prefer. Serve this with the avocado pits to keep your guacamole from browning.
