I taught myself how to make guacamole last week. I don’t know why I waited to so long. It was super easy, only took ten minutes and turned out great. It doesn’t look like much in the bowl, so you’re going to have to take my word for it. 🙂
Minced Garlic (I use the jarred stuff)
1/3 of a small onion chopped up into tiny bits
Salt, Pepper and Mexican Adobo Seasoning from the Savory Spice Shop
I’m one of those horrible cooks (I use the term lightly) who don’t measure anything, so I dumped in the avocados (after slicing them in half, removing the pit and spooning out the good part, of course), a heaping spoonful of the garlic, the onion and then added the spices before smooshing it all with a potato masher. You could always add some red pepper flakes or salsa if you like your guacamole spicy, but I don’t. I’m never buying pre-made guacamole again!
And a quick note on the Mexican Adobo Seasoning: my husband uses it in everything he makes that’s related to Mexican food. So far the list consists of rice, pork tamales, chicken enchiladas and soft chicken tacos. We haven’t tested it on beef yet, but it probably works on that, too. We discovered it when his aunt was staying with us last summer. Her chicken tacos were so good I had to peek at the seasoning she used, just for future reference.
(Disclaimer: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention the seasoning. I bought it last fall and just love it.)
