Authentic Guacamole Recipe: Flavorful and Fresh

The Cabo Mag

Guacamole is a beloved Mexican dip known for its creamy texture and vibrant flavors. To create an authentic and delicious guacamole, follow this classic recipe:

Ingredients:
– 3 ripe avocados
– 1 small red onion, finely diced
– 1-2 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and finely chopped (adjust according to your spice preference)
– 2-3 ripe Roma tomatoes, diced
– 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
– 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
– Juice of 1-2 limes
– Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions:
1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a mixing bowl.
2. Using a fork, mash the avocados to your desired consistency (chunky or smooth).
3. Add the diced red onion, finely chopped jalapeno peppers, diced tomatoes, and chopped cilantro to the bowl with the mashed avocados.
4. Mix in the minced garlic and squeeze the fresh lime juice over the mixture. The lime juice adds a tangy flavor and prevents the avocados from browning.
5. Gently fold all the ingredients together until well combined.
6. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Start with a small amount of salt and adjust to your preference.
7. Taste the guacamole and adjust the lime juice, salt, or other ingredients as needed to achieve the desired flavor balance.
8. Cover the guacamole with plastic wrap, ensuring the wrap is touching the surface of the dip to prevent browning, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Serve and Enjoy:
Serve the authentic guacamole with tortilla chips or as a delicious accompaniment to tacos, fajitas, or grilled meats. The combination of creamy avocados, zesty lime, and fresh vegetables will make this guacamole a hit at any gathering or as a delightful treat for yourself.

Remember, the key to excellent guacamole lies in using ripe avocados and fresh ingredients, so savor the flavors and enjoy the true taste of Mexico in every bite!
