The Best Guacamole Ever!

During the Thanksgiving holiday I was lucky enough to sample the BEST Guacamole I’ve ever tasted courtesy of my friend Marisol Hudson Valdès-Berthet.  I’m a big guacamole fan, it is probably one of my most favorite foods.  Avocados are a great source of unsaturated fat and guacamole is packed with vegetables so it’s a super healthy food.  Marisol is originally from Guatemala and is a master Latin American chef – anything she makes is delicious.  She was kind enough to share her recipe.  It is so good.

The Best Guacamole EVER!

For approximately 6 cups you’ll need:

8 Ripe Haas Avocados 3 Limes (Juice These) 1 Medium Onion 2 Garlic Cloves 3 Medium Diced Roma Tomatoes 1 Diced Jalapeno Pepper 1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro Salt & Pepper to Taste Directions: Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the fruit from the flesh into a large bowl. Immediately add the lime juice, onions, garlic, cilantro, the diced jalapeno, salt and pepper. **The trick to guacamole is to use a grater to grate the onion and garlic. The garlic may be pressed or grated. This allows the onion and garlic to be finely grated and the juice flavors the guacamole. Using a sharp knife, slice the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced. Add the tomato. Mix well and taste if more salt and pepper is needed. To keep the guacamole fresh, leave the pits of the avocados in the bowl until time to serve. Delicious!
