It’s summertime – time for one of my favorite foods – guacamole. And it’s time to share this post again because this stuff is just so good you all really need to make this pronto! It really is the best guacamole ever! If you grow your own herbs you cilantro is probably doing great and is all ready to be added to a batch of this yumminess. If you have tomatoes planted, plant some new starts/seeds of cilantro so you have fresh cilantro and fresh tomatoes at the same time.
When your tomatoes are ripe, a batch of fresh salsa and a batch of this yummy guac go wonderfully together. Use for picnics, potlucks, Sunday supper, afternoon snacks, lunch, or even breakfast. It’s that good!
When I first decided to make fresh Guacamole I searched online for a recipe. I couldn’t settle on one recipe so I created my own recipe using all the ingredients that sounded good to me. This combination is hands down our very favorite guacamole ever. In other words, the best guacamole ever 😀
Of course, if you have a guacamole recipe that you think is the best ever you are more than welcome to stick with it. If you don’t try mine you won’t even know you are missing out on the best guacamole ever 😀 😀
- 2 ripe avocados
- 3 TBS fresh lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 5 TBS chopped tomato
- A lot of cilantro, chopped
- 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (seeds are optional)
- salt to taste
- Peel avocados and remove pit. Add lemon juice and mash avocados with an avocado masher or a fork. Leave them a bit chunky.
- Add garlic, tomato, peppers, salt and lots of cilantro.
- Salt to taste
- You can add more or less of any ingredient to your taste.
- Making a double or triple batch is recommended.
I think avocados are going to be added to the grocery list cause looking at these photos is making me really want a batch of this stuff.
Next time avocados are a good price at your market – buy some. Add some jalapenos, tomatoes, garlic, cilantro, and lemons to the cart too, if you don’t have any growing fresh in your garden. And make yourself a batch of the best guacamole ever 😀
Have a wonderful weekend!
