Simply calling this dish guacamole doesn't do it justice. This "get this party started" guac. This is, "forget the main dish--I'm eating the guac" good. It is a tradition in our house to make it today. . . the day of the "Big Game." And even thought it is also tradition to make steak sandwiches as the main course, I inevitably fill up on the guac and can't finish my sandwich--which is also divine.
So with no further ado, you will need:
3 - 5 ripe avocados
1/2 a large red onion, diced
handful of chopped cilantro (about 1/3 cup)
1 jalapeno (if it's large I use 1/2)
juice of 1 lime
salt to taste
Peel and smash the avocados. . .
Dice the onion. . .
Dice the jalapeno. . .
Chop the cilantro. . .
Add to smashed avocado along with the squeeze of lime and the salt. . .
Mix all together. . . and try to save room for the main course. Or just plan on not having one.
