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
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.
