My favorite color is green and every time I make guacamole (or pesto for that matter), I get so happy! I came across this recipe when I worked at a local natural foods store, but it's been tailored to fit my taste buds! The original had way too much cilantro and onion for me. I like the avocados to stand out in my guacamole.
This recipe is definitely one of my favorites. Not only is it easy, it's super delicious! It doesn't make very much, maybe about 3 cups. If you're planning on preparing this for a party, I would double or even triple the recipe to meet your needs.
- 3 large avocados
- The juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 medium sized bunch of cilantro, chopped
- 1 large tomato, juice and seeds removed, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/4 - 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- A pinch of red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients in your food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.
If you like a chunkier guacamole, you can mash the avocados and chop the rest of the ingredients finely and just mix well with a fork. Whichever you prefer, but I like mine smooth!
Enjoy and Happy Eating!
