The Guacamole Song!

Wow! What more do you need to know? Here's my recipe for a simple, yet delicious, guacamole!


Feel free to alter amounts to suit your preference, e.g., if you like more tomato - add more, if you want more lime juice - add more, etc.


2 ripe avocados (should be slightly soft, but not mushy)
1/2 lime, juiced
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup chopped white or red onion, rinsed under cold water (use a strainer)
1 large roma tomato, seeded and diced
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
Couple grinds of freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup loosely packed cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno or serrano chili, seeded and chopped (optional if you like it spicy)


First peel the avocados, remove the pits, squeeze each half of the avocados into a bowl or molcajete (mexican mortar). Add the lime juice and mash with a fork or the metlapil (mexican pestle). Like so:

Add the remaining ingredients and let sit a few minutes before serving. This lets the flavors blend. 

If you want to serve it with tortilla chips, I highly recommend spreading them on a baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees for about 5 - 8 minutes. Serve this beautiful guacamole with thoughtfully warmed tortilla chips and it just might make you sing! Olé!
