How to make the perfect guacamole
December 23, 2011 6 Comments
Hubby saw the ripe avocados when we were doing the groceries this morning at Albert Heijn, the Dutch supermarket chain where we normally go. He loves guacamole and especially the one I mastered after a few experiments that more or less approximate to the one we tasted in New Mexico when we were there on a camping holiday many years back.
Here are the ingredients:
2 ripe avocados, roughly chopped
2 big tomatoes, roughly chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
A handful of coriander, finely chopped
2 dried chilies, finely chopped (can be substituted with fresh chilies)
Salt and pepper
Other people would put the avocados in a food processor but I would advice against that. It is best to just make slices with a sharp knife to chopped the avocado in finer pieces but never make a puree out of it.
Coriander is also another ingredient which really makes a big difference in this guacamole. It is simply refreshing to the taste buds.
Mix all the ingredients together and serve with tortilla chips. If you have grated cheese, you can also add that as well.
