Best Ever Guacamole (Fresh, Easy & Authentic)



Certainly! Here's a recipe for Best Ever Guacamole that is fresh, easy to make, and authentic in flavor:

- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 small tomato, diced
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped (adjust amount according to your preferred level of heat)
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1-2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- Salt, to taste
- Optional: diced fresh jalapeño or serrano pepper for garnish

1. Cut the avocados in half lengthwise. Remove the pit and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
2. Mash the avocado with a fork or a potato masher until you achieve your desired consistency. Some prefer chunky guacamole, while others prefer it smoother.
3. Add the diced tomato, finely chopped red onion, jalapeño pepper, and chopped cilantro to the bowl with the mashed avocado.
4. Squeeze 1-2 tablespoons of lime juice over the mixture, depending on your taste preference. Lime juice not only adds flavor but also helps prevent the avocados from browning.
5. Add the minced garlic to the bowl. Season with salt to taste.
6. Gently fold all the ingredients together until well combined. Take care not to overmix, as you want to maintain some texture in the guacamole.
7. Taste the guacamole and adjust the seasoning as needed. Add more lime juice or salt if desired.
8. If you prefer an extra kick of heat, you can add some diced fresh jalapeño or serrano pepper on top for garnish.
9. Transfer the guacamole to a serving bowl. If you're not serving it immediately, press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole to prevent browning.
10. Serve the Best Ever Guacamole with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos, burritos, or other Mexican dishes.

Note: This recipe is for a basic and authentic guacamole. Feel free to customize it by adding additional ingredients such as diced garlic, chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro, or a splash of hot sauce according to your taste preferences.

Enjoy this fresh, flavorful, and authentic guacamole as a delicious dip or topping!
