Have you ever tried to photograph guacamole? Let me just tell you - it is exceptionally difficult to make this green blob of avocado goodness look even remotely appetizing. I don't quite understand how something so creamy and delicious could look so unappealing.
Despite it's unusual appearance, I would argue that there is no better appetizer than chips and guac. AND it really is so easy to make that you will never want to buy guacamole from the store again.
2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 serrano chili, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon grated lime zest
1 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
3 ripe avocados
1 plum tomato, diced
2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
Serve with chips.
In my desperate attempt to add some visual interest to this chunky green mass, I tried adding a "dollop" of sour cream. Apparently --- it's impossible to "dollop" your sour cream in 90% humidity. Who knew? So just disregard my weird pictures and take my word for it - this guacamole is delicious - despite it's awkward appearance.
This is a very basic guacamole recipe - nothing fancy or exotic - but I want to know what you add to your homemade guacamole to make it personal. What spices or peppers or vegetables do you add to your homemade guacamole? Do you like it smoky or sweet, salty or fruity? Or maybe you're like me and you just like plain and simple guac with salty chips. Leave me a comment and let me know.
