World's Best Guacamole
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 4
You've tried lots of guacamole recipes but I can assure you this is truly the World's Best Guacamole
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 2 persian limes (big ones)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ large white onion (Vidalia) finely chopped
  • ½ jalapeño, seeded and finely diced (wear gloves)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. Place onion and jalapeño in a bowl with garlic powder, salt and pepper coat with juice of limes.
  2. Set aside at least 5 minutes and up to an hour.
  3. Half avocados, scoop out insides, discard pit and skin.
  4. Mash Avocados in the bowl with onion mixture until desired creaminess.
  5. Add additional salt if desired.

There are many variations to this guacamole depending on your taste and preference.  You can char corn and add it to the guacamole, hide some other leafy greens (Kale, spinach etc.) in your guacamole for added nutrients. Whichever way you like to eat it, guacamole is a fantastic appetizer, dip or spread perfect for your next causal gathering or dinner party.
