Day 16. Recipe 16.

Guacamole seems like a simple dip to throw together. Afterall, it is just a few ingredients thrown into a bowl and smashed up. Do we need a recipe for something so simple?

Yes!

Unfortunately, there is some lousy guacamole out there friends like whipped guacamole or guacamole with peas.

"Oh, Barf!"

The below is a classic, delicious and party-worthy recipe. 


Easy Guacamole

adapted from Alton Brown's Guacamole Recipe

  • 3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 medium sweet white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 small tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Step 1: In a large bowl place the scooped avocado and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated.

Step 2: Use a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Fold in the onions, jalapeno pepper, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice and combine.

Step 3: Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.
