Easy California GuacamolePrint Recipe
- 5 Ripe Avocados
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 Red Onion, diced
- 1 Jalapeño, seeded and diced (or keep the seeds if you like extra spicy!)
- 1/4 Cup Cilantro, roughly chopped
- 4-5 Dashes Mexican Hot Sauce (I use CHOLULA - can find at Walmart!)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
For avocados, slice in half (run knife lengthwise along seed), slightly twist and pull apart halves. Remove the seed (can use tip of a spoon to gently run underneath it to lift it out, OR, if daring enough and want to look pro, you can use sharp knife to quickly whack it-not sure of the professional term there, then pull up and twist it out). Place avocado halves in large bowl.
Squeeze the lime juice over all the avocado, then using a masher or fork, mash to desired consistency.
Add the onions, cilantro, jalapeño and hot sauce, mix well to blend.
Add salt and pepper to taste (avocados need a lot of salt, but you cant remove once in, so add a few pinches at a time, taste and add more if needed)
Enjoy immediately or store for several hours in fridge to develop even more flavor (be sure to use plastic wrap directly on top of the guacamole when storing to prevent browning).
