Ready for the Best Homemade Guacamole? This is my recipe for a guacamole that will not leave you deflated. Haha…I could not resist a little football humor. I am completely out of touch with the world of sports, but even I have heard of this recent scandal regarding the Patriots. This week leading up to the Super Bowl should be interesting!
I asked Scott join me in the kitchen so we could revisit our Best Homemade Guacamole in preparation for the big game next week. Guacamole is one of my favorite dips of all time. It is typically something I will pick up at the store, but for a party or special occasion I will follow the ingredients for this creation! We had not made it in a while so we were not sure if it would require some tweaks before sharing the recipe!
We shopped for our ingredients and put on our his and hers shirts to support Texas. Alas, they did not make it to the Super Bowl, but I figured we should represent in this post. 🙂
Best Homemade Guacamole
I used my food processor so that the ingredients turned into a smooth texture. However, you can always just mash up the avocado with two forks. This is what we did for years before the food processor came into our lives. The avocado should be sufficiently ripe so you should easily be able to create a soft consistency. Below are the ingredients and the steps you will need to put this delicious dip together.
His & Her Kitchen Duty
I opted for juicing duty with the limes…
Thankfully, Scott took on the job of the scallions and purple onion. Chopping those bad boys up is my least favorite kitchen activity! He looks a little intense in this picture – proof that raw onions can have quite an affect on anyone. After chopping he moved on to the avocado. He peeled them, discarded the pits and sliced them up. A little tip…always wash your veggies before cutting them up. It takes a few minutes, but you never know what could have landed on your produce while it was sitting at the food store.
We blended up the avocado slices with the lime juice in our food processor. As I said, you can also mash up the avocado with two forks and then add in the juice from the limes. Next comes the purple onion, scallions and all your spices. We are big fans of Himalayan salt. Pulse in the processor for about a minute or so. You want the mixture to be a little chunky. Add in the chopped tomatoes and quickly give it one more go to mix everything together.
The most important step is the taste test. I am a firm believer this should not be skipped…
Place your homemade guacamole in a bowl and serve with the appropriate garnish. Guests often like to add in their own extras for flavor like more lime juice or salt.
