Traditional Guacamole

Who doesn’t like guacamole? Well, I am sure there are some that don’t, but it has become a staple at any party. There are all kinds of variations, but a straight up traditional one always takes the cake in my book!

Ingredients

1 ripe avacado (How do you know it is ripe? All black, if there is no green on it, it is good to go, wait too long and it will be rotten)
1/2 lime juiced
1/2 small onion (white or yellow) chopped (mix it up and use a red onion)
1 serrano chile minced (with our without the seeds. Keep the seeds in to make it spicy, take them out for a more mild, but still flavorful guacamole)
1 small roma tomato chopped
1 small handful of cilantro minced
salt to taste

Feel free to double or triple the amounts!

Method
Start with the avocado. I just tried this method to keep it from browning, it is brilliant, using salt water. Just don’t add extra salt at the end. Follow this link to find the instructions. (Zen belly guacamole recipe)

Continuing on with the avocado. One you have removed it from the salt water (did you follow the link?), place it in a bowl and mash it with a fork. I prefer it chunky so I don’t mash it too much. Add all the other ingredients and give a quick stir. Serve with fajitas, plantain chips, tortillas chips (if you do corn) or just by the spoonfuls, (we all do it).
