Best Guacamole you ever tried! I learned this authentic recipe from a Mexican family, no need of cream, blender, or any other ingredients for the true Mexican guacamole. I love guacamole so much that when I was in Mexico people were calling me Irene Guacamole. Back there I was literally eating it from a bowl with a spoon like cereal, sometimes I still do.
I like to eat guacamole with tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, or just only with some nachos.
The only thing you need is a knife, a cutting board, a bowl, a spoon, and a fork. If you are missing something, go get some!
How to understand if a avocado is good or not!
First of all, you should try to find Avocado Hass, which are the ones with darker and rougher skin, they often taste better than the green one. Mexican differentiate them by calling them Avocado de aceite and avocado de agua, oil avocado, and water avocado. This indicates the difference between them since one is more watery than the other one. To choose the best avocado you should palpate the avocado, it should be soft but the pulp should not separate from the skin. To make sure it’s not rotten I have a sketchy method. I remove the petiole from the avocado. If the color inside is brown the avocado it’s rotten; if it’s green the avocado it’s perfect to eat.
Wash your onion very carefully. Slice them in very tiny cubes, the smaller the better. For a medium-big (European) avocado I use half onion. Cut your tomatoes I usually prefer cherries but if you have a favorite one use it! Put them in a drainer with a bit of salt to get out their water. Open your ripe avocado in half, scoop out with a spoon the good stuff and place it in a bowl. Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl. It will help you to smash the avocado.
It’s time to get messy. Grab spoon and fork and smash the avocado. You should obtain a soft texture with some chunks. I only do my guacamole in this way. I don’t like to use any blander, indeed. Now you can add the tomatoes and the chopped onion and mix them together. On the cutting board, you can cut a jalapeño and add it to the bowl. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Mix well and garnish it with some coriander leaves, onion slices, and lime wedges. And it’s ready to test.
