Here is my fool-proof, perfect guacamole recipe. Perfect is a strong word, but for me this is the perfect recipe. Creamy, chunky avocado, pungent garlic and fresh lime juice all perfectly blended. This recipe is so fast and easy to make, simple ingredients and great flavor.
For the perfect guacamole, you will need the best, ripe avocados. The avocado is ripe when it gives slightly when squeezed. Keep unripe avocados at room temperature next to bananas until they are ready.
I like my guac chunky so try not to over mash the avocados, use a fork to mix everything together.
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2-3 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
Halve and pit the avocados and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
Add the shallot, garlic, lime juice and cilantro. Use a fork to gently mash until creamy, but still chunky. Salt and pepper to taste.
The guacamole can be made a few hours in advance, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge until ready to serve.
