One dish that always perks me up is a fresh bowl of guacamole.  It's such a cheery snack, great color, taste, and crowd pleasing.  Over the years I've experimented with a lot of guac recipes, including adding mayo (holy horror!), salsa, various spices, and toppings.  Well I am a much wiser cook now (wink wink) and have come to firmly believe that guacamole is a dish best showcased with simple ingredients.  Here is my go-to method.

Makes: 4 servings

2 ripe avocados (Costco usually has nice Hass avocados)
1 clove garlic
1 jalapeno
1 fresh tomato
1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

This is as easy as it gets folks.

Slice avocados in half and using a spoon, scoop the insides into a bowl.

Add diced garlic, jalapeno, tomato, and lemon juice.

Using a fork, mash together until mixed but not so much that the avocado chunks completely fall apart. Chunky guacamole is the way to go!

Serve with tortilla chips.

  1. I've won guacamole competitions by just using garlic salt to taste... I'm going to have to try your method though...
