I've posted about guacamole in the past back on our old blog speakeasy, but it's the perfect time of year to make guacamole so I thought I might talk about it again. With all of the fires in Cailifornia this year I was all prepared to pay a fortune for avacados, but aparently all's well cause they were $1 each at the store. So go out and make yourself some guacamole. As an extra little tip check out Juanita's chips. At my store they are sold in the "mexican" section. I'm not sure why they are sold on a different isle from the rest chips, but I suspect it's because the other chips felt inferior.
½ jalapeno, minced
½ roma tomato, seeded and diced
2T red onion, minced
1 clove garlic minced
2 limes, zested and juiced
salt and pepper
½ bunch cilantro
Try to get the avocadoes a few days in advance so they are nice and ripe. I like to score the avocado flesh with a pairing knife so when you spoon it out it comes out in small pieces. Combine all of the ingredients in to a large bowl. Use a large fork to combine the ingredients to the texture you like. I prefer to leave it a little chunky so you can really enjoy the texture of the avocado.
