I love, love, love a great bowl of guacamole, the kind that makes me want to eat it by the spoonfuls. This recipe for guacamole is exactly that; delicious (spoon worthy) and easy to make. I have been making it the same way for years, and it came about after a trip to Mexico. The simplicity of fresh ingredients was perfect and made me want to recreate at home. So I did. And I have been holding out on sharing with you for years!
My recipe is simple, just a few fresh ingredients. No tomato and no salsa added. It is flavorful and it is creamy. I add a little sour cream as it not only makes the recipe even creamier, but it helps prevent the guacamole from turning brown. Brilliant right! So easy, your man lover can even make it – Lenny even made you a video!
All that is left is some salty tortilla chips and an icy cold beer!
2 large and ripe avocados
1 tablespoon jalapeno, finely minced
4 tablespoons red onion, finely minced
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup cilantro (leaves and stems), finely minced
1/2 lime juiced
1 tablespoon sour cream
kosher salt, to taste
fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
Cut the avocados in half, removing the pit, then dicing and placing into the bowl.
Smash with a fork.
Add the red onion, garlic, cilantro and sour cream.
Squeeze in the juice from half of the lime.
Stir with a fork until creamy. We do not like if too smooth, some chunky pieces of avocado are good.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, then let sit about 30 minutes before serving.
