RECIPE – THE BEST GUACAMOLE

One of my favorite things to do in Santa Barbara is to host outdoor dinner parties {basically, a slightly upscale version of a barbecue}.  We’ve been fortunate enough to have had beautiful weather as of late, so I was able to host a dinner in January and February.  Without hesitation, I knew I’d be making guacamole to keep people happy before the meal was served.  Each time, the guacamole was gone… every last bit of it.  This is my very favorite guacamole recipe… I hope you love it as much as I do.

RECIPE FOR BLONDER AMBITIONS’ VERSION OF THE BEST GUACAMOLE

  • 5 ripe Hass avocados
  • 3 limes
  • 1 red onion
  • Bundle of cilantro
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • *I like to get all of the ingredients from the local Farmer’s Market
  1. Halve all of the avocados and remove the pits.  Scoop the avocado out and place it in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Cut all of the limes into quarters.  Squeeze all of the juice on top of the avocado halves in the mixing bowl.
  3. Chop the red onion into small pieces.  Place the chopped onion in the mixing bowl.
  4. Chop the cilantro into fine pieces.  Place the chopped cilantro in the mixing bowl.
  5. Using a fork, mash the avocado and stir in all of the ingredients in the mixing bowl.
  6. Add the salt and pepper to taste.  Give a final stir to the ingredients in the mixing bowl.
  7. Transfer guacamole to a serving dish with fresh tortilla chips and enjoy!
