Guacamole is a basic Mexican sauce. It’s becoming more popular now when everyone is obsessed with healthy eating.
Today I’m sharing with you a classic recipe for guacamole. My friend Julia made it for me, and she learned this recipe from her Mexican colleagues.
A few rules:
? Basic or classic guacamole uses only avocado, lime juice, herbs (mint or coriander), and salt. Other ingredients can be added according to your taste and are optional.
? For guacamole, you want ripe but not over-ripe avocado.
How to choose the perfect avocado:
- It should be soft but not mushy.
- Flick off the stem. If you find green underneath, the avocado is nice and ripe.
? And another important rule, that the Mexican colleagues insisted on, guacamole should be mashed not blended to get this paste-like consistency with bite-size pieces of avocado.
Guacamole turns out great and pairs perfectly with different dishes. I served it with grilled salmon.
Finely chop the mint leaves. Peel and pit the avocadoes. Mash it up. Add the juice of half lime, mint, and salt. Mash until you get the desired consistency, add lime juice and salt to taste. Combine. Done.
