Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 4 Haas avocados, chopped and mashed gently by fork
  • 4 cloves garlic mashed, then minced in press
  • 3/4 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 fresh lime, halved
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • Small hot pepper, optional
  • Small amount of homemade salsa, optional

Directions

  • Prepare ingredients above, saving avocados for last to prevent darkening.
  • Mash avocado in bowl until just rougher than final desired consistency.
  • Squeeze lime over avocado mixture, and stir in.
  • Combine other ingredients, and adjust to taste.
  • Serve with blue chips, and enjoy.

Avocado selection is absolute key. You want ripe avocados, but not overly ripe. If you get overly-ripe avocados, you will have baby food. If you pick under-ripe avocados, you will have tough chunky green paste.
