From The Hookup:
It was then he touched me for the first time that night.
He did this by putting a warm hand on the small of my back, the heat of it melting into my flesh, traveling up my spine and down over my bottom.
“Christ, Iz, this is the best guac I’ve ever had,” he stated.
I love guac.
Recently, I decided to get serious about making good guac, not simply smushing up avocado and adding some salsa and calling it a day.
I tried one recipe and it was such a winner, everyone who tasted it loved it, even one friend who didn’t like guacamole.
I never looked back.
So I gave that guac to Izzy in The Hookup.
And now I’m giving it to you!
- 3-4 Ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and smushed
- 1 Juiced lime or a good dose of bottled, real lime juice
- ½ cup diced onion, I use red because I love red onion, you use what you love
- 2-3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro or a couple of squirts of that stuff from the tube, up to you how strong you like your cilantro and obviously fresh is always better!
- 1-2 teaspoons minced garlic, depending on how much you like garlic
- A very healthy pinch of salt
Depending on how you like it
- 1-2 teaspoons chopped jalapeño and/or
- 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper and/or
- Healthy tablespoon or two of readymade fresh salsa
Alternate or additional spicing I’ve used that adds goodness is a few healthy shakes of Tajin seasoning.
Caveat: I hate tomatoes. I like marinara sauce and ketchup. I just hate tomatoes in their natural form. So except for the tomato that has been soaked in salsa juice, I don’t add tomatoes to my guac. If you love tomato, add 1-2 diced roma tomatoes to this delicousness.
How to do it…
Chop, dice and mince what’s gotta be chopped, diced and minced. Prepare the avocados in a bowl. Mush it all together with the rest of the ingredients. Taste test to make sure you like what you’ve got and add accordingly.
Then voilà, delicious guacamole you can use as dip, in tacos, on burritos or however you like it!
