How to Make Guac
2-3 Minced Garlic Cloves
1 Tbs of Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1 Small/Medium Chopped Tomato (Most Seeds Removed)
1 Chopped Small/Medium Red Onion
1 Minced Jalapeno (Seeded)
1 Lemon or Lime
Tortilla Chips of Choice (We Like Tostitos Scoops)
Mix garlic, cilantro, tomato, onion, jalapeno in a large bowl.
Scoop avocado out with a spoon and lightly mash in
the bowl with other ingredients.
Mix in lemon or lime juice and kosher salt to taste.
It can be annoying for recipes to say “to taste” for ingredient quantities. However, guac is a dish best served however you like it. Add more jalapeno to kick up the spice, more citrus for if you like it tangy, leave cilantro out if you prefer, etc. The important thing to remember is avocado should be the star of the show, don’t add too many things that mask the flavor!
If you don’t feel like chopping all of the ingredients, you can always get avocados, mash them up, and add a few tablespoons of your favorite salsa. We prefer a salsa without too much flavor other than the fresh ingredients. Fresh guac will eventually turn brown but save 1 of the pits, put it in the middle of the container you’re storing the guac in and press plastic wrap on the surface, then put the lid on.
