One food that never gets any rest at this home is guacamole–all three of us love it! Our families love it, too. I treat any person unwilling to try it as suspect (I don't understand people that do not love food and I don't care for those people). On this particular day, we made my outstanding chicken enchiladas, which will one day have a post of its own. While the enchiladas are in the oven, we get the guac going. First, get 4 ripe avocados–cut in half.
Remove pits and have the cutest kid in your home throw them in the garbage (we do not compost food scraps).
Next, slice avocados INSIDE THE SKIN. (At one time, I assumed that this was common knowledge, but I have seen a person scoop first, then cut, what a mess!)
Scoop avocado into a bowl w/a metal spoon.
Juice 3 limes, add to bowl use your favorite masher and mash until you have reached your desired consistency, we prefer chunky. Add 1 large minced garlic clove, 1/2 of a chopped red onion, a handful of coarsely chopped cilantro, some salt (I only cook with kosher, ever).
Stir everything together, drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top.
Test the product.
Add more salt if necessary. At this point, I portion the kiddo's guacamole. Now, we dice 2 jalapeños (from our garden) and add to the best guacamole ever on Earth. Yeah, I said it.
No final product picture, boo!
