Guacamole Recipe

Avocado ripenessThe secret to making the perfect guacamole, just like they relish it in Mexico, is in the avocado itself. Go for perfectly ripe ones, they must be soft but not yet black.

The day you taste one made from a freshly-picked fruit sun-ripened on the tree, you’ll cherish that memory forever.

  • Start by mashing the avocado flesh.
  • Dice that tomato into fine cubes.
  • Chop up the onion into tiny bits.
  • Guacamole recipeSnip the cilantro into quarter-inch cuts (5mm).
  • Finely slice the chili pepper (start with just a bit…and add more if you dare!)
  • Squeeze the juice from the green limes.

Once prepped, give it all a good mix. Cover and chill until serving time. Enjoy this guacamole with corn chips, toasted bread slices, or even fresh veggies like carrots. Happy eating!
