Guacamole is quick and easy to make, and oh so delicious! I love the fresh, green colors which reflect those of early spring. Plus, it’s never to early to start practicing your Guac Game in preparation for Cinco de Mayo. Here’s how I make it:
In a medium bowl add three peeled and pitted avocados, the juice of one lime, a generous dash of salt, and a pinch of ground cayenne pepper and mash to the texture you like. Add 1/2 cup diced onion, 1/2 cup diced tomato, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, and 1 teaspoon minced garlic and stir to mix. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and sliced, pickled jalapeno peppers. Serve with tortilla chips.
