Perfect Guacamole (Recipe)

 

Earlier this week, we brought you great recipes for homemade chips and salsa for your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. We’d be remiss if we didn’t provide a recipe for another favorite dip. Try out this guacamole, and come back tomorrow for some drink recipes!

Guacamole

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 Cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 Serrano chiles, stems removed
  • 3 Ripe Hass avocados, halved and pitted
  • 2-3 Tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1 Small white onion, finely chopped
  • Coarse Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

Instructions:
1. Finely chop the garlic and chiles. Transfer to bowl.
2. Score the avocados in a crosshatch pattern. Don’t go through the skin. Using a spoon, scoop out into bowl with garlic and chiles. Mash with the back of a spoon or a potato masher. Stir in cilantro and herbs, and combine. Add salt and lime juice to taste.

since i don't really care for the taste of avocados i need a good recipe to kind of flavor it up!

this can't be too hard, though i have no experience with avocados, except to taste them, yuck.

Makes me hungry for this, without the pepper, though.

Sounds good, although I don't put garlic in my guacamole :)
