My fresh authentic guacamole recipe is divine, but first I want to give you a few pointers so it turns out perfect every time.
Secret #1 - Buy high quality Haas avocados. When choosing your avocados choose ones that are blemish free and have a slight give when squeezed lightly.
Secret #2 - ONLY USE FRESH INGREDIENTS. Seriously, do not put in canned tomatoes, fake lemon juice, dried cilantro or garlic powder; it ruins it. Some use lemon and some use lime in their guacamole, just use what you like - but make sure it's fresh.
As I said above, the trick to perfect guacamole is using good, ripe avocados. Check for ripeness by gently pressing the outside of the avocado.
If there is no give, the avocado is not ripe yet and will not taste good. If there is a little give, the avocado is ripe. If there is a lot of give, the avocado may be past ripe and not good. In this case, taste test first before using.
These recipes are just guidelines, so if you love heat or cilantro, please feel free to add more.
In a large bowl, mash the avocados and add the lime juice and salt; mix well to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
For a very quick guacamole just take a 1/4 cup of fresh salsa and mix it in with your mashed avocados. Delicious.
