I don’t know about you guys, but I am pretty obsessed with guacamole. There’s something about its delicious simplicity that really appeals to me. Serve with chips or fresh veggies for dipping, and your Cinco de Mayo celebration will be off to a tasty start.
1 Haas avocado, pitted and diced
1 tomato, diced
2 green onions, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
salt and your favorite hot sauce, to taste
In a large bowl, combine the avocado, tomato, onion, garlic and cilantro, mixing well and mashing the avocado a bit with a fork.
Squeeze some lemon juice over the top, stir it in, season with the salt and hot sauce, and let the guac sit for about 10 minutes before serving to let the flavors meld a bit.
