My love affair with guacamole is rooted in my love of Mexican food. I can, quite literally, eat an entire bowl of it. When I was an undergraduate at Centre College, my favorite snack to keep in my dorm refrigerator = the guacamole from Whole Foods Market. And while I will occasionally purchase food out of convenience, there is no need to purchase guacamole (plus, it’s expensive).
Why? This recipe is more economical, is simple, and is – to understate – delicious.
When making it, I recommend “cutting” it with a couple of forks or a fork and a knife. I prefer this method of mixing, as opposed to mashing; I like guacamole chunky + I always want to see the ingredients that are in my dishes.
Enough rambling — I present to you: the. best. guacamole.
The Best Chunky Guacamole Recipe
4 Avocados, ripe
1 Medium Tomato, finely-diced
2/3 c. Red Onion, finely-diced
1/8 c. Fresh Lime Juice
1 Garlic Clove, minced
2 tbsp. Pickled Jalapeños, diced
Tabasco Sauce, to taste (I use around 12 dashes)
Kosher salt, to taste
Black Pepper, to taste
- Cut the avocados and remove the seed.
- In a large bowl, combine avocado, diced tomato, diced red onion, fresh lime juice, minced garlic, diced pickled jalapeños, tabasco, salt, and pepper.
- Using either two forks or a fork and knife, slice through the ingredients until they are chunky, yet well-combined.
- Add more salt and pepper, to taste, if desired.
As always: Happy Eating, Happy Traveling, Happy Living.
