Here’s a video on making a great guacamole, a favourite dish everybody loves. This is a perfect dish year round, whether it be for a special occasion, holiday, or just because you want to. This is a classic Mexican dish that done right can have excellent flavour, with a kick to it. It’s also a dish that can be extremely bland if done poorly. Essential ingredients are avocados, jalapeños, tomatoes, onion, salt, pepper, and garlic. Cilantro is an optional ingredient, but be careful as it is a strong flavour, and not everyone likes it, in fact, I have a very good friend that is highly allergic to it. Tomatillos are also a nice optional ingredient.
Lemon Juice ( and/or lime juice )
Cilantro ( optional )
Dice the avocado, tomatillo, jalapeño, tomato, and onion. Combine all the diced ingredients in a mixing bowl, and add salt and pepper to taste. Top off with some minced garlic and the juice from one lemon and/or lime. Using a potato masher,
mixed all the ingredients until well blended and the guacamole has a relatively smooth texture. Add the large seed from the avocado to preserve freshness. Put the guacamole in the refrigerator to chill. Before serving, garnish with fresh tostadas.
Guacamole has a variety of uses; an excellent appetizer or dip, a topping for burgers, in a salad, even as a side for other dishes. Enjoy!
