Guac

AuthorJim BrownPrep Time10 minsTotal Time10 mins
 2 Ripe avocados
 1 Jalapeno - deseeded and chopped
 1 Small shallot or small sweet onion chopped
 2 Cloves garlic minced
 6 Cherry tomatoes
 1 Bunch cilantro
 1 Lime cut into wedges
 1 Salt will be added to taste
1

Cut the avocado in half and scoop the contents into bowl. Save the seed.

2

Finely chop the shallot and garlic and add to bowl

3

Chop the cherry tomatoes and add to bowl

4

Deseed the jalapeno with a spoon and then chop. Add to the bowl.

5

Chop a handful of cilantro and add to the bowl

6

Stir and taste this mixture before adding the lime and the salt. You’re going to add both of those gradually, tasting as you go. Start by squeezing just a small wedge of lime into guac and taste. Then add a pinch of salt and taste. Repeat the process. Notice how the salt causes the other flavors to stand out more. Notice how the lime freshens the flavors. I always add the seed back to the bowl to see if helps keep the color. But the best solution is just to dig in and eat the guac.
