Making Guacamole

When it comes to making guacamole, there are thousands of recipes claiming to be the "best". I don't know that I've had an "oh my gosh this is the best guacamole I'll ever eat" moment. As long as it's homemade it's all good to me. I've yet to try a commercial guacamole that I liked right out of the package. Give me a break all you really need is 3 ingredients so why buy guac that was made in some factory?

As long as you have good ripe avocados, tomatoes, and an onion you're on your way. Of course you can add much more than that, and I usually do, but that's all you really need to get the ball rolling. To me you have to keep the guac simple - KIS it - keep it simple...

In this video recipe you will see that all I used is:

2 Avocados
2 Tomatoes
1 Garlic clove minced
1/4 cup of red onion
1 Jalapeno
Salt
Pepper

If I had cilantro or limes I would have used them - but I didn't, and it wasn't going to stop me from making some guac...

Feel free to add other items such as:

cilantro, lime juice, cumin, hot sauce, tomatillos, red pepper flakes, or any other items you see fit for your guacamole.

Bon Appetit...

  1. ...kinda reminds me of John Belushi in "Animal House." Great videos, btw. They really help non-cooks make good stuff.
