After watching many a table side guacamole at various Mexican restaurants, I decided to make my own based on what I saw them adding. I'm sure it is very similar to many other guacamole recipes, but I wanted to share my standby guacamole recipe. It is my go to snack recipe, whether it is just for Bill and I or for a big group.
From: Elizabeth's Dutch Oven
Prep time: 10 min
1-2 tsp onion (chopped small)
1 small clove garlic (minced)
1 plum tomato (chopped)
1/2 lime juice (or whole lime if not very juicy)
1-2 Tbsp Cilantro
salt (kosher or sea salt) and fresh ground pepper
1. In mortar and pestle (or medium bowl) add onions and garlic and smash them against the side to get the juices out.
2. Add avocado, lime juice, salt & pepper and mash with two spoons to desired consistency (I don't like mine totally smooth). Taste and season to desired preference.
3. Add tomato and cilantro, mix together, and serve with chips!
