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.
