Every month I get together with some old girlfriends, everybody brings food and we just catch up. I always ask what they want me to bring, and every time it’s the same, “Bring your famous guacamole!” Easy for me, and I don’t know how famous it is, it’s rather unoriginal. But it is delicious, fresh, easy, healthy, and even the kids like it, (mostly for the chips).
- 3 ripe avocados (skin should be black and soft when pressed)
- ¼ c tomatoes small dice
- ¼ c onion small dice
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 T cilantro minced
- ½ jalapeno minced (optional)
- ½ t kosher salt
- 4 grinds fresh black pepper
- Cut your avocados in half lengthwise around the pit and twist open, hit the pit with your knife (be careful), when the knife is stuck in the pit, twist to remove it and discard. Make a grid of cuts in the avocado flesh and scoop out with a spoon into a bowl, mix and smash with a fork. The avocado will mash more as you combine the ingredients but leave it as chunky as you like it.
- Add all other ingredients and mix
- Serve with tortilla chips or as a taco, baked potato, or chili topping
