I love avocados, so in turn I love guacamole! I make it whenever I have some avocados that are getting soft. It’s very easy to put together this recipe. I personally do not like tomatoes in my guacamole, so this has none. 🙂 There isn’t really much else to say, just take a look and give it a try for your next snack or Taco Tuesday! Cheers!
6 ripe avocados
2 jalapeño peppers, diced (seeds removed, unless you want it spicier)
1 medium red onion, diced
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 t salt (more to taste)
1 t pepper
2 t cumin
1 t cayenne pepper
1 lime, juiced
Directions: Cut fully around the avocado with a knife from top to bottom. Twist to open and remove the pit and scoop or cut out the inside of it. Add to a medium bowl. Smash the avocado with a fork, making sure to remove any lumps.
Add in the jalapeño. If you want the guacamole mild then just add in the pepper. Omit the seeds and membrane from the pepper. If you want a little more spice, add in seeds and membrane. Adjust to your preferred spiciness.
Next add in the red onion, garlic and cilantro. Mix well. Add in the lime juice. More or less to taste. Season with salt, pepper, cumin and cayenne pepper and mix.
Let sit either at room temperature or in the refrigerator for a while to let the flavors marry. Make sure to tightly wrap bowl with plastic wrap, pushing down the plastic wrap to cover the guacamole.
Serve on tacos or as a dip. Enjoy!
