With the Superbowl this weekend I figured that providing you with my guacamole recipe might come in handy. I don’t want to toot my own horn but it’s seriously the best guacamole I’ve ever eaten. Handsdown. The Best. No questions asked. It is a little more detailed than most recipes but I figure if you’re going to the effort of making guacamole you may as well make it right! Even if you don’t need my recipe, please whatever you do- don’t buy it pre-made, it’s just doesn’t taste the same. I’ve provided the recipe using 1 avocado but you can easily double, tripple or quadruple depending on how many guests you have at your part. Me? I’ll be working (what a suprise).
Peel and de-seed 1 avocado. Mash half of it and chop the other half into rough cubes. Gently fold into the mashed half
2 Tbsp diced red onion,
1 seeded and diced tomato
2 Tbsp diced red pepper
1 large diced garlic clove
1 Tbsp lime juice
3/4 tsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp diced jalepeno (optional)
pinch of chilli flakes (to taste)
1 Tbsp finely chopped coriander (cilantro)
and the remaining chopped avocado. Season to taste with salt and pepper and adjust the heat. If you don’t intend to serve immediately press plastic wrap directly on top. Serve with crunchy chips or vegetables.
