Sometimes I make my own, but it's usually easier for me to pick up a small ready-made container from the produce section at the grocer. Especially if I'm already there to get avocados. I mean, come on, these two go together like Burns and Allan, Oreos and milk.
So here's whatcha need for easy peasy, yummy-in-your-tummy guacamole.
- pico de gallo
- 2-3 avocados, or more, depending on how much guacamole you want. Make sure they give slightly under gentle pressure. Not to hard, not too soft.
- 1-2 limes
- 1-3 cloves garlic, minced
Now, cut your lime(s) in half and squeeze juice over the avocado. I just use my slightly parted fingers to catch any seeds. The acidity of the lime juice not only adds a nice tang, it also helps prevents the fruit from turning brown too soon. Mash this all together. I like a few chunks of avocado in my guac, so feel free to make however you like.
Next, add your pico de gallo (as much or little as you want), garlic and salt to taste. Stir and serve.
See. Easy. Add a bag of tortilla chips around my place and you are soon looking at the bottom of an empty bowl. They love this stuff. Of course, you can also use it on tacos, fajitas, sandwiches, you name it.
Do you like avocados? What's your favorite way to eat them?
Thanks for the pico, Jan. Hope y'all like the guac.
