Fresh guacamole – homemade. In my opinion, few things beat a bowl of this stuff. Now, I know you can easily buy a package of decent guacamole these days, but I guarantee that your life will be a whole lot better if you mix up a batch up yourself. It is a fairly quick and easy appetizer and making it yourself really takes it to that next level. There are a myriad of ways to mix and match different ingredients within guacamole, but this is my take on the fresh, chunky guacamole – I promise you will love it. That is one thing I love about guacamole, I don’t know if there is a wrong way to make it and everyone seems to have their own preferences. As you will read in the recipe below, I have incorporated and encouraged everyone to keep tasting the guacamole along the way so that you can modify this basic recipe to accommodate your preference. Have fun and get creative!
Add some garlic, tomatoes and onions.
Don’t forget salt and lime juice…. mix and devour!
I would suggest, in true Wooden Skillet fashion, to go the extra mile in your plating, set the mood and truly savor your homemade guacamole… happy cooking!
Stay tuned… next up I am enlisting the help of my grill-master husband to serve up something scrumptious!
