The truth is that I never really liked guacamole until I started making it myself, and I started making it myself because I just love avocados SO MUCH you guys, and I knew that my love of avocados would be the perfect foundation on which to build a better guacamole. And I did. (For me anyway.)
So I'll go shopping and you can sit back and watch.
- 1 avocado
- 1 serrano chile, minced
- 1 small shallot, minced
- 2 tablespoons of freshly chopped cilantro
- Juice from 1/2 lime
- Salt and pepper to taste
After pitting my avocado, I've gone ahead and diced it into pretty big chunks. And the easiest way to do that is right in the peel with a butter knife, and then using a spoon to scoop it all out into the bowl.
Then it's just a matter of adding the lime juice, salting and peppering, and carefully mixing it all up, making sure to keep the avocados as chunky as possible.
Because simple is best, ya know.
(And now a shout-out to my boys Karl Alzner and Tyler Sloan: YOU GOT THIS SHIT. Make us proud.)
