A.K.A my fave guacamole in the world.
But before we get to the guac, I want to know how your weekend was!
How was your Valentine’s Day? Did you do anything special, or fun? For the second year in a row, Mikey and I ordered pizza 😛 It’s kind of my favorite thing in the whole world.
This was our EIGHTH Valentine’s Day together—I can’t even believe that. Our first couple years together, we did the fancy restaurant dinner thing, then I used to make us a crazy nice three-course meal the next few years, and finally last year, we just opted for pizza. I mean, we go to nice dinners with enough frequency, and I cook at home all the time, so it’s kinda special to just order pizza, then sit on the couch watching a movie while eating gelato!
But anyway! Now we can discuss this awesome guacamole! It’s fresh and vibrant, with a kick of spice. I like a lot of texture in my guacamole, so I’m quite careful while I’m mashing the avocado. Of course, you can make it as chunky or creamy as you wish!
I suppose there isn’t much I need to tell you about guacamole…I mean it’s nothing novel or difficult to make, haha! But, I will provide you with a couple of tips (and the assurance that this specific combo of guacamole ingredients creates one of the best guacamoles out there)!
I like to use roma tomatoes in my guacamole, because they have a lot less pulp than other varieties, meaning it won’t get too loose or soupy.
The other tip I have is for storing your guac. Cover it with plastic wrap, and press the plastic wrap onto the surface of the guacamole; this will prevent browning!
Oh, and the guacamole is best when eaten within couple days of making it! Much longer than that and liquid will accumulate, ad it will start to discolor.
- 2-3 ripe avocados
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup diced roma tomatoes
- 1 tbsp freshly-squeezed lime juice
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- salt and pepper, to taste
- In a large bowl, roughly mash the avocados with a fork. Add in the remainder of the ingredients, and gently stir to fully combine.
