Avocados, are one of the many things that I started loving after I met Kyle, and the reason was that he loves guacamole and tacos. I remember the first time I made guacamole, I didn’t like it that much, I knew there was something missing or something that needed to be changed. After some tries, I came up with the recipe that I’m posting here which is a family favorite, and everyone will love it. My friends and family who have never had avocado or guacamole before loved it so much.
I’m a big fan of homemade food, homemade dessert and everything homemade. I believe the love you put in food makes it way more delicious than any fast food or take out or supermarket food. Therefore I’m saying why eating a store-bought guacamole full of chemicals and preservatives when you can easily make your own in like 10 minutes with fresh ripe avocados?
All you need is an avocado, quarter of a red onion, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper and lemon juice.
A good ripe avocado should be soft but not too soft, and very green.
Dice the red onion and garlic, chop the parsley and mash the avocado with a fork. Mix everything with a fork and add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Voilà! That’s all you have to do to have fresh guacamole.
To take the avocado pit out, I always use a knife and quickly but carefully stab the pit, give it a little shake and take it out, if it’s your first time or for any reason you are not comfortable doing that, just use a spoon to take it out.
Guacamole tends to get grey after a day. To avoid this, you can put the guacamole in a container, pour a tablespoon of water on it and cover it with a plastic wrap so the wrap touches the guacamole. I still prefer to make and eat it fresh .
