Ok ok. I know. Guacamole is certainly NOT french. But it is now a worldwide basic in cooking which can save an impromptu party.
Beleive me when I say If you bring a good guacamole to your friend party, you’ll be the star of the evening. The base in my guacamole is avocado, lime and onions. After that, you can add whatever spice and ingredient you like. My best-ever guacamole recipe has stayed pretty consistent over the years with a few tweaks to how I prepare it.
Get creative, create your own guacamole recipe and impress your family and friends.
Let’s get started my frenchies !
Yield : 6 servings – Prep time : 10min
What you’ll need
- 4 ripe avocados
- 1/4 cup grape or cherry tomatoes (or mangoes if you’re feeling adventurous)
- 1 tablespoon red onion
- 1 jalapeño or Serrano pepper
- cilantro, to taste
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon each cumin and chili powder (or to taste)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Finely choped the tomatoes, red onion, the jalapeño pepper (if you want your guacamole spicy, leave the seeds of the pepper, if not just remove them), the cilantro and garlic.
Grill in a skillet one half lime (it enhances the flavor and warm limes produce more juice- it also smells heavenly) and juice it.
Combine all the ingredients except the avocados, salt and pepper to give the flavors a chance to meld for a half hour or so.
Mash the avocados with a fork so there are whole pieces of avocado and then gently fold in the other ingredients.
