perfect guacamole recipe

that's all this post is about.  perfect guacamole.  it's easy.  there is no need to try and make this complicated and there's certainly no need to add things like oil, sour cream or garlic.  it's a simple recipe that takes all of 5 minutes to make. 

  • fresh and ripe avocados mashed roughly
  • green onions (finely chopped)
  • FRESH lime juice (usually 1 juicy lime for every 2 small avos)
  • salt

optional ingredients:

  • pinch of chili flakes OR fresh finely chopped jalapeno (seeds and veins removed)
  • finely chopped tomato
  • finely chopped cilantro (don't use too much because it's overpowering)

just mix all the ingredients and enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips.  i don't give quantities because it all depends on the size and quality of the ingredients you're using.  tasty guacamole needs a fair bit of salt but add it a tiny amount at a time, tasting in between until it's perfect.

TIP - to keep it from turning brown, put one of the avocado pits in the guacamole until ready to serve.
