My truly simple "guacamole" recipe involves just scooping the avocado flesh out of its shell, placing it in a bowl, and roughly mashing it up. However, when I proposed a snack of guacamole to D this evening, he suggested I take it up a notch. So, I amped up this guacamole with the usual culprits: salt, pepper, garlic, lime juice, and just a smidge of salsa.
makes enough for two
1 ripe avocado, pit removed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
juice from 1/2 a lime
1 tablespoon salsa
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1. Use a spoon to scoop the flesh of the avocado into a bowl.
2. Add in the salt, pepper, lime juice, salsa, and minced garlic.
3. Stir to combine. I prefer my guacamole to be a little chunky, so I stir more with the side of a spoon to cut up the avocado into small pieces.
4. Serve immediately.
