Holy Guacamole!

on July 20, 2012

I am not a fan of avocados. They’re green, mushy, and almost slimy… Ick!

However there is an exception. Guacamole is one of my favorite things and this recipe is why.


4 large avocados (That usually means Haas)

5 cloves garlic, peeled

1 jalapeño pepper, chopped

5 T fresh lime juice

1 T kosher salt

The easiest way to do this is put the garlic, salt, and jalapeño in a small (1 cup size) food processor and run til everything is chopped fine. Add 1T of the lime juice and pulse some more.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh into a bowl.

Mash the avocados. A fork will work but I like to use a potato masher. Mix in the garlic, salt, lime, jalapeño mixture. Mix in the rest of the lime juice 1T at a time stopping to taste and make sure it doesn’t have too much lime.

That’s it 🙂
