FAVORITE GUACAMOLE

about 2 to 2¼ cups

 

  • 2 firm ripe avocados (preferably Haas variety)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 firm ripe medium tomato, cored, seeds removed, and diced
  • 1 to 2 jalapeno pepper(s), seeds removed and chopped
  • ½ to ¾ cup finely chopped peeled sweet onion
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise (optional)
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves (no stems), cleaned, dried, and finely snipped (optional)
  • Kosher salt or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Crisp tortilla chips as desired as dippers

Cut avocados in half, remove seeds, and scoop out flesh into a bowl; discard peel.  Immediately add lime juice (to prevent discoloration) and mash to desired consistency.  Add remaining ingredients, except tortilla chips, mixing well.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving.  To serve, spoon Guacamole into a serving bowl, garnish as desired, and accompany with crisp tortilla chips as dippers.

Note: In a hurry with no time for preparation?  Kroger has freshly prepared guacamole available for purchase this week in the produce section of the grocery store.
