Perfect Classic Guacamole

Perfect Classic Guacamole

The secret for a perfect guacamole is to use good, ripe avocados. If the avocados are very soft when you press them gently, the avocado may be past ripe and not good anymore. Choose avocados that are  slightly soft when you gently press them. Also, the outside color should be dark green but not too dark. Another way to check if the avocados are ripe is to pop off the little stem on top, and if the patch underneath is brown – it means the avocado is overripe, it should be nice green.

I love to eat this classic guacamole not only as an  appetizer with chips but also as a sandwich spread.  I got some gluten free bread and bagels from Canyon Bakehouse recently, and I couldn’t wait to try their bread with this perfect classic guacamole. So delicious!!

Also, this recipe is extra delicious because of a secret ingredient that makes it so much better – I added some ground cumin. My sister gave me this suggestion and I had to share it with you because it was so good.

I hope you give this recipe a try and let me know how you like it.

What you need

3 avocados

1 medium tomato, finely chopped

1/4 red onion, finely chopped

1 lime

1 tsp cumin, optional

salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Mash avocados in a medium bowl. Add finely chopped tomato and red onion to the bowl.

Squeeze in the juice of the lime, season with cumin, salt, and pepper, and mix everything. Season with more salt and pepper according to your taste.

Serve immediately, or cover with a plastic wrap to prevent air reaching it. (The oxygen in the air causes oxidation which will turn the guacamole brown.) Refrigerate until ready to serve.
