Are you looking for a simple and easy Guacamole recipe? I think I have just the one for you – as we get ready to celebrate the season of green!
I’d never had guacamole for the first twenty-eight or so years of my life. I’d even “hold the guac” on my Chipotle burritos – but I’ve seen the light! Now I’m addicted and mixing up a batch as often as possible.
My recipe is based loosely on Rick Bayless’s Frontera cook book but I’ve added a few of my own little twists.
First, I start with two or three ripe avocados. Ripe avocados are dark green, and soft but not too squishy. Worried that it might be too ripe? Here’s a great guide for picking the perfect “fruit.”
Most people find the easiest way to get the deliciously buttery pulp from it’s shell is to cut the fruit vertically in half, rotating around when you get to the hard pit in the center. If you do this delicately, and cut around the pit, you should be able to twist and pull apart very easily.
