The Best Guacamole Ever

I had an amazing guacamole one time at El Vez over in Philadelphia. Good thing for me, it was made table side.  I was able to watch how they made it and then was able to make it for my family.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • half of a red onion, diced
  • handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped tomato
  • juice of half a lime
  • kosher salt to taste – about 1/2 tsp.

Prepare all of the ingredients and set aside.

To prepare the avocados:

Cut avocado lengthwise around into two halves.  Carefully, with the heel of your knife, remove the stone.  Or pop it out if it’s ripe enough.  Score the fruit into a checkerboard pattern and scoop or squeeze it into a bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients. Lightly stir.  Taste and adjust for seasoning.

Serve with chips or as an accompaniment to dishes such as Fire-Roasted Chicken Enchiladas.
