Really, everyone who ever tries my guacamole wants to know the secret. When I first started making this, I didn't really know what to tell them! With only 5 ingredients, what could be so secret about it? As you all know, John and I love to make Mexican food (well, American-Mexican food). From tacos to fajitas, I'd say we eat Mexican on average 3-5 times a month. And with that always comes John's request for Guacamole.
Usually, the guacamole gets served on top of a million other condiments (salsas, cheese, etc.) but John has been known to take chips and scoop the guacamole off the top! I mentioned WAY back in May that I really had to post this recipe because even though it is so unbelievably simple, it really is delicious. Plus, with football season fast approaching, this is a quick and easy dip that you can make for whatever game day fans come your way! I love to bring this to other people's houses because I bring my own dish (with the five ingredients) and my masher and make it right there. It takes no time, and no kitchen space. I always try to bring a big bag so I can throw the masher and serving dish back into it and clean it at home.
1/4 cup red onion, diced small
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons lime juice
Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Peel back the avocado skin and place the avocado meat into a bowl. Add onion, pepper, and salt. Mash a couple of times, until avocado breaks down into smaller chunks. Add lime juice. Continue to mash avocado until guacamole is creamy with only a few small chunks left. Serve immediately.
Guacamole will turn brown if it's left for a while. If you put some lemon juice in it, it will keep a little longer, but it is still best to make as much as you need.
Until the next time my oven is on...
