Easy guacamole that only takes about 10 minutes to make. Great to serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for fajitas or tacos.
2 ripe avocados
1/2 red onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
1-2 Serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, minced
2 tbsp. cilantro, finely chopped
1 tbsp. fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped
1. Cut avocados in half, remove seed, scoop out from the peel and put in a mixing bowl.
2. Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado (don’t overdo it, you want it chunky). Add the onion, cilantro, citrus juice, salt and pepper; mash a little more to mix. Add chiles based on your desired level of hotness.
3. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation from the air reaching it. Refrigerate until ready.
4. Just before serving, chop the tomato, add to the guacamole and mix.
This recipe is very easy to make but I can make it easier if you’d like: mashed avocadoes, little citrus juice and 1/4 cup of salsa. That is the easiest you can get. But honestly, this recipe is really good and very simple compared to others.
Make sure you don’t forget the citrus juice, whatever you do. It is what prevents the avocadoes from browning. And obviously the avocadoes are the most important ingredient.
