2 ripe avocados*
2 Roma tomatoes
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
1 small jalapeño, seeded and quartered**
Juice from half a lime***
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 tsp salt
- Ripe avocados are soft. If the avocados at your grocery store are hard, you can ripen them at home by putting them in a paper bag on your kitchen counter for a day or two
- I like mild guacamole, so I actually don’t add the jalapeño.
- You can use 1-2 tablespoons of bottled lime juice instead of a fresh lime
- Put the ingredients into your food processor in this order: garlic, onion, jalapeño, tomato, salt, and lime juice. After adding each ingredient, pulse the food processor a few times.
- Cut the avocado: insert a knife into the skin near the top and draw a line down to the bottom and then up the other side. Be careful not to insert the knife too deeply or you’ll hit the pit in the middle.
- Now pull the avocado apart into two halves. Remove the pit with a spoon and throw it away.
- Using the spoon, scoop out the flesh of the avocado and add it to the food processor. Pulse the food processor a few times, until the guacamole is as smooth as you want it.
Servings: 1-12, depending on how much guacamole you eat at one time…
