Homemade Guacamole Recipe
Nothing will make me overindulge more than fresh homemade guacamole.
Here is my simple recipe and photo tutorial, below, on how to make this festive appetizer, just in time for Cinco de Mayo.
- Avocados, ripe- 3-4
- Cilantro, fresh chopped
- Orange- 1
- Lime- 1
- Prepared Pico de Gallo (yes, I cheat a use an already prepared combination of tomatoes, onions and peppers)
- Salt- a pinch or two
- scoop avocado from skin and mash
- add cilantro
- squeeze in juice from orange and lime
- add pico de gallo
- season with salt to taste
Scoop avocado from skin
My secret ingredient: about half the juice squeezed from an orange plus the juice squeezed from a lime
Mashed together with pico de gallo and chopped cilantro
Some say that keeping the pit and returning to the guacamole will keep the guacamole from turning brown; I can’t say for sure that I agree, but it did make for a pretty photo.
But! I have found that adding a half cup of sour cream seems to do the trick and keep it fresh looking.
