I. Love. Guacamole!
Guacamole night in my house is as much anticipated by my husband as my two children. It is a running joke in our house that whenever I am lacking creativity in my meal planning, I always choose some sort of taco or quesadilla. I think it is because I am always looking for a reason to eat guacamole. After all, I get a vegetarian burrito when I go to Chipotle just so I can get the free guacamole! (The guacamole is by far more important than the meat in my book).
The key to good guacamole is using fresh ingredients. Always, fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. I repeat, always use fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. Without these two ingredients, you have mediocre guac.
All you need:
3 avocados, seeded and roughly chopped.
2 tablespoons onion, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Juice of 1 lime
Sea salt, to taste (1/2-1 teaspoon)
3 tbsp chopped, fresh cilantro
8-10 cherry tomatoes, chopped
All you do:
1. In a medium bowl, place avocados, onion, garlic, lime juice and sea salt. Mash with a fork until mixed.
2. Stir in cilantro and cherry tomatoes.
