There isn’t much to say about guacamole besides it is delicious and everyone knows its delicious and everyone (well, almost everyone) loves it. This is my favorite guacamole. It’s a little bit spicy, little bit garlicky, little bit tangy, little bit crunchy, and a lot of creamy avocado goodness. This recipe makes enough to share with a group–perfect for a cinco de mayo fiesta at home!–and is such a crowd pleaser. Last time I made it, Neal and I smashed the entire batch in about 10 minutes. I love when I have a full tummy from guacamole.
Molcajetes are a fun way to make/serve guacamole. I like to put my peppers, some of the onion, garlic, lime, and salt in the bowl and smash them until a paste forms. I then add the cilantro, smash a little bit, and add the remaining onion before stirring in the avocado chunks and slightly mashing and folding them in. This way, you have some fun textures going on and it’s not just a creamy dip (don’t get me wrong, I love creamy dip, but also love a variety of texture. This is a win win for me!)
I’m so tired and Dobby is being a super menace tonight, so I’ll get to the recipe! Enjoy!!
P.s. Obviously this guac is the perfect thing to serve alongside tequila lime chicken tacos and the world’s best margaritas (recipe coming later this week in time for cinco de mayo!)
