The combination of loaded guacamole with tortilla chips is the ideal culinary combo. Avocados, lime, onion, and other fresh ingredients are gently blended to create the dip. It tastes great with your favorite fajitas or tacos as well. It is a sheer delight to bite into a salty, fried corn chip that is carrying creamy avocado that has been brightened with lime and sprinkled with cilantro, garlic, tomato, and chilies.
Guacamole is best when made from scratch. Better than anything you can buy, guacamole can be made at home in just 15 minutes. Here is a recipe for the best and easiest guacamole.
Ingredients To Make Guacamole
2 large or 3 medium ripe avocados
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus additional amounts as necessary
1-2 medium limes
2 garlic cloves
1 tiny tomato
1 tiny serrano or jalapeno pepper
1/4 of a tiny red or white onion
1 small bunch of fresh cilantro
- Cut the ripe avocados in half. Remove the seeds and put the avocado flesh in a bowl by scooping.
- Add a 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 2 tablespoons of the juice from 1 to 2 medium limes to the avocado.
- To achieve your preferred consistency, mash with a fork or potato masher.
- As you finish each, add it to the avocado bowl: 2 medium garlic cloves, minced. 1 small tomato, halved, seeded, and diced coarsely.
- Cut one small jalapeno or serrano pepper in half, the white membranes and seeds removed, and then coarsely chopped. 1/4 cup, finely chop 1/4 small white or red onion and 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves from half a medium bunch and coarsely cut them.
- Gently blend by stirring. If necessary, taste and add additional kosher salt.
The guacamole can stay fresh for 4 days. Store the leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container. Cover it with a sheet of plastic wrap and press it gently into the guacamole. You can also double seal the dip. After smoothing the guacamole’s surface, cover it with a sheet or two of plastic wrap. Seal the lid of the airtight container’s to keep out extra air.
What To Add In Guacamole to Make It Taste Better?
Rarely is the kind or quantity of add-ins to blame for boring guacamole. Check the salt as well. To bring out the avocado’s subdued green flavor, start by altering the amount of salt and lime juice. As you gradually incorporate these components, taste periodically to determine the ideal ratio for your palate.
