I made this "ultimate guacamole" for the first time when I came home from shopping one day and realized that I had forgotten to buy limes I had always used in my guacamole recipe. I usually have lemons in the house, so I substituted. The results were delicious.
One of my daughter’s friends commented that she likes this guacamole because “it doesn’t have any stuff in it.” I asked her what she meant, and she said, “oh, you know: tomatoes, onions, green leaves.” I think she meant cilantro. I agree with her. I like my guacamole pure, too. We hope you enjoy!
The Ultimate Guacamole
2-3 ripe avocados
Juice of one lemon
1 garlic clove (be sure to remove the little green stem in the center of the clove.
Dash of salt
Finely chop the garlic clove (or use a garlic press), and place in a bowl with half of the lemon juice and salt. Add avocadoes and mash with a fork until there are no large chunks, but don’t puree until smooth. I like a bright lemony taste, so at this point I add a little more lemon juice. I recommend experimenting, adding more lemon juice and salt to your own taste. Serve with our new find, Frontera Lime and Sea Salt tortilla chips or our all-time favorite, El Milagro "Totopos" Mexican Kitchen Style corn tortilla chips and Out to Lunch Fiesta brand queso.
