An all time Favorite Best Guacamole Recipe… ever (in my opinion)! A mix of chunky and creamy avocado seasoned perfectly with lemon and lime juice, chives, onion, and garlic. Happy sigh.
If there’s one thing that will get my guys to the table, it’s the promise of homemade guacamole. I’m guessing you’re the same if you’re reading this post.
Seriously, it should almost be a food group unto itself. Whether it’s a Friday night, Taco Tuesday, a game day, a just because day… or to satisfy an avocado craving, a great guacamole recipe is essential.
This is my “great” recipe. Although I change it up from time to time, adding a variety of peppers, like poblano (or even Hatch when in season), tomatoes, sometimes cilantro. I always come back to this. It really just… works!
Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or cut veggies. Oh, my goodness. It’s so good!
All Time Favorite Best Guacamole Recipe
An all time Favorite Best Guacamole Recipe… ever (in my opinion)! A mix of chunky and creamy avocado, seasoned perfectly with lemon and lime juice, chives, onion, and garlic. Happy sigh.
4 large Hass avocados
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion (my favorite is sweet yellow, but white, red, or even scallions work too)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped
1 lemon, juiced (1-1/2 tablespoons)
1 lime, juiced (1-1/2 tablespoons)
2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeño (optional)
kosher salt and pepper to taste
Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, remove the avocado from the skin, and place into a bowl.
Add the lemon and lime juice, onion, garlic, chives, jalapeño (if using), salt and pepper to taste. Mash with a fork or a pastry cutter until half chunky, half smooth and creamy.
Serve immediately with tortilla chips, pita chips, or cut veggies.
If the avocados are firm, use a pastry cutter — it makes the job a LOT easier! Also, I read that if you need to refrigerate the guacamole, place half an onion on top to preserve its color. It actually works!
