As much as I love avocados and guacamole, I had never attempted making it myself until last night. I was just really in the mood for some homemade guac. I loosely based my recipe on the one in Joy of Cooking.
I started with the avocado. I had one large and one small Hass avocado, so that was what I used.
Pat had to help me with mashing it up – my hands were getting tired.
I then added:
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 1 Roma tomato
- 1.5 tbsp chopped garlic
- 1 tsp parsley
It was very fresh and very good! Pat and I actually ended up eating the entire bowl for dinner, with some Tostitos scoops.
