The key ingredient to making the best homemade guacamole is the combination of tomato, cilantro, and lime. If you are not creating with those components, then your Guacamole will turn out very bland.
3 Hass Avocados, Ripe
1 tsp Garlic powder or fresh garlic
1 Lime, Juice of
1 Tomato, small
3 tablespoons finely chopped red onions.
Baking & Spices
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Jalapeno (stems and seeds removed and chopped (optional)
The first thing you will want to do is chop up your cilantro, tomato and red onion then set them aside.
Next, you will want to cut open your avocado and remove it from the peel.
I like using OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer - Green; it’s an All-in-one tool that splits, pits, and slices avocados. It’s the safer way to open an avocado. Trust me; the Hubby had to patch me up after a couple of times cutting myself. But if you are using a knife, pull the avocado apart by gently twisting. You will see the large pit in the middle. With your chef's knife aimed at the avocado pit, carefully hit into the pit using enough force that the blade does not slip. Then, twist the knife to pull the pit out.
Mash avocado slightly in a large bowl using a fork. Add lime juice, salt, and garlic powder and continue mashing to desired consistency.
Stir in the onion, cilantro, tomato, and jalapeno.
Taste and season, as necessary.
Serve immediately or cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
