My Guac Brings all the Boys to the Yard…..

On Saturday, after a day of drinking in the park with Jamie like a pair of hobos, Lien came over to make guacamole and fish tacos.  I wasn’t going to post this guacamole recipe because I thought – who doesn’t know how to make guac? More importantly, there are so many varieties of guacamole that are specifically tailored to the chef’s taste I thought it would be pointless. But then I remembered there was a day not too long ago when I tried guacamole for the first time (sheltered child) and had no idea what it was. I favour this recipe because it’s a combination of all the different ways several friends have made it – which I now realize is pretty damn adorable.

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 tomato
  • Half of a white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Small bunch of cilantro – palm of your hand. 
  • 2 limes
  • Salt

The trick to amazing gauc is the texture and lots of lime. Also, some people don’t add salt claiming the salt on the tortilla chips is sufficient – this is ludicrous. Adding salt rounds out all the complex flavours and is critical – don’t argue with me. Chop everything up (white onions very finely) and mash it all up in a bowl so it’s creamy but still a little bit chunky. Squeeze lime over top, add salt, stir and taste it. Add more lime and/or salt if needed.

  1. Would you seed the tomatoe before adding it? Also, can you be more specific on the amount of cilantro? The typical grocely store “bunch”, even split in half seems like a lot for 2 avocados….
