I'm reposting it to add pics. The recipe hasn't changed.
My favorite guacamole has only four ingredients.
2 or 3 ripe avocados, peeled and lightly mashed with fork
1 small red onion, diced
lime juice (2 or 3 TBLS) preferably fresh, but bottled is ok
a big pinch of kosher salt
Slice the avocados in half, around the pit.
Scoop them into a bowl.
A perfectly ripe avocado should just give when you apply a little pressure. I said a little pressure, because when I was trying to show Jon how to pick a ripe avocado, he was applying so much pressure that his fingertips were turning white. He was lucky that our grocery store rarely has ripe avocados, or he could have had quite a mess on his hands!
Mash the avocados gently with a fork. I like there to still be nice chunks in it.
Add some diced red onion.
Squeeze in some fresh lime juice.
You can add lots of other stuff to guacamole.
Some people stir in sour cream or salsa, diced tomatoes, diced jalapenos, cilantro. Lots of different things.
But this is my FAVORITE!
I put it on everything! Nachos, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, burgers, sandwiches, everything!
It was AWESOME on this turkey sandwich!
