First: remember when I told you about my first tailgating experience and we talked about how to make our own salsa? WELL, that same weekend I was going to write about guacamole as well, since this is a blog about love sometimes and I believe that salsa and guacamole are in love. ANYWAYS, I had taken some pictures of guacamole at my friend Jessica’s house while visiting her and making citrus pesto for her mother, and they turned out horribly.
Except, that is, except for a few frames that I didn’t have in my OTHER set of guacamole pictures. I made guacamole last night for Nannie and, per usual, didn’t take the right set of pictures because 1. I’m easily distracted and 2. Jay was chopping and I missed a few things.
I’m telling you this so you understand why the pictures look like they came from two different occasions. It’s because they did!
I’m really sorry about that.
But, this is how I make guacamole. It’s good, and fresh, and fabulous. Like my sister Emily.
I make my guac very plain, but you could stir in sour cream, diced tomatoes, fresh peppers – whatever you like! Here’s what I use:
- 2 avocados
- juice of one lime
- 1 teaspoon canned jalapeno juice (my mom did this once and it was so good I always do it now!)
- salt like whoa
- 1 teaspoon minced canned jalapenos
- 1 tablespoon minced cilantro
- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- 1 clove minced garlic
