Today I want to share with you my Best Ever Guacamole recipe! Guacamole is always the bomb when you use fresh beautiful ingredients and here are the ones I always have to have in my guacamole.

Must Haves:

  • Fresh ripe Haas avocados; they should be dark green and yield slightly when light pressure is applied.
  • garlic; I love LOTS of garlic and so has everyone who’s had my guacamole but adjust to your tastes if the quantity frightens you ;)
  • green or red onion; depends on what I have on hand but I use the white & green of green onions
  • grape tomatoes or just the meat of a whole tomato (no juice or seeds)
  • cilantro; is a must in my opinion but those with the genetic trait that experience a soapy taste when eating cilantro may leave it out
  • sea salt; to taste
  • lemon or lime juice

Even though I’m going to share a guideline recipe for this based on the last batch I made I will say that how much of each ingredient varies a little each time I make this based on the flavor and quality of the produce. I usually add everything to taste and encourage you to do the same.

Best Ever Guacamole

Best Ever Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 2 Hass Avocados
  • 3-7 green onions, diced or 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 4-6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10-13 grape tomatoes, diced (about 1/3 cup)
  • loose cup of cilantro, chopped
  • diced jalapeno, to taste
  • juice of half a lemon or lime
  • sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Cut a circumference slice around the avocado (from stem to bottom), set the pit aside, and scoop avocado into a bowl using a spoon. Mash the avocado using a whisk.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and gently fold into the avocado until mixed well.

Notes

I have 2 secrets to keeping guacamole fresh and green. 1. Store the pit in the guacamole 2. If you have leftovers, place a layer of saran wrap over your bowl and press the saran wrap down until it is flush with the surface of the guacamole (this tip works for pesto too)

I love to use my best ever guacamole the following ways:

Guacamole and BBQ Filled Cucumber Boats

Or without the BBQ sauce

Serve as a meal with carrot and cucumber chips

Layer in romaine leaves with other favorite veggies for romaine lettuce wraps.

Use in a nori wrap instead of slices of avocado.

Serve alongside some homemade salsa sauerkraut with whole grain chips. mmmm.

Whatever way you choose, I think you’ll agree it’s super super delicious! Enjoy!
