I obtained this recipe from one of the many vegetarian cooking classes that I have attended over the past 15 yrs. It's simple but great. By now, I'm making this one by heart. No recipe needed! Hint: for a summer twist, instead of the diced tomato, add diced mango. Fantastic!
2 ripe avocados
juice of 1/2 lime
1 1/2 tsp hot sauce or fresh roasted jalapeno sliced into thin rounds (opt)
1 clove garlic (mashed OR grated)
1 large tomato diced into small pieces
salt to taste
In a small bowl, fork mash the garlic and salt together.
Add the cubed avocado pieces. Semi-mash with the fork...leaving a chunky texture.
Add the lime and stir.
Add the tomato and hot sauce or peppers (if using).
NOTE: Please read above for the tomato substitution. Many other combinations are possible...be creative. Try some red diced onion or olives. Can't go wrong here. The mango is my absolute summer favorite.
Most people serve guacamole with chips. I prefer a wheat free, gluten free cracker, Mary's Crackers. There is a variety of flavors but my favorite are the original and the black pepper. Look for a good sale, these can be quite costly...ranging anywhere from $3.33 to $5.00.
