Guacamole

Being from California we grew up with avocados. Guacamole is a staple of any party and goes just right with my Cinco de Mayo theme. This is a fairly straight-forward recipe. What I really like about it is that the lime juice really keeps the guacamole from turning brown. I totally forgot to put the cilantro in last time, so if you don't like cilantro just leave it out.

Ingredients

  • 6 ripe avocados
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed then minced
  • 2 serrano chiles, cut into rounds
  • 1 big handful fresh cilantro with stems, about 1/2 cup, finely chopped
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Halve and pit the avocados. With a tablespoon, scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl. Mash the avocados using either a fork or potato masher, leaving them still a bit chunky. Add the remaining ingredients, and fold everything together. Drizzle with a little olive oil, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and give it 1 final mix with a fork.

Lay a piece of plastic wrap tight on the surface of the guacamole so it doesn't brown and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
