I made some guacamole the other day and thought I'd post it up, since I make guacamole differently than other people, on account of how mine's spicy.

It's also totally yummy:

Now I normally make this with my sous-chef, but since he's currently luxuriating on a small Caribbean island I had to do it all by myself, hahah.

I don't know what other people put in their guacamole, but here's (more or less) what went into mine:


1 avocado, peeled and mashed
~3 tablespoons of chopped cilantro 
1 finely chopped serrano pepper with seeds
1/4 diced red onion
~1 teaspoon of salt, more to taste
~1 tablespoon lime juice, to taste

Serves about three to four people if you don't want leftovers.

Now some people put garlic in it, which tastes good too, and tomatoes--but that's generally what I use salsa or pico de gallo for. 

I might have overdone some of the salt and lime juice because the avocado was very ripe, so it needed some extra oomph, but just taste steadily as you go to make sure it tastes nice to you.

A quick tip on picking avocados: make sure that they have some give to them when you squeeze them, but not as much as a mango, maybe more like a peach. That's assuming you like your mangoes very ripe, as I do.

Next time, I'll consult my sous-chef and see if there's some trick to make it yummier I've forgotten.

Happy eating!
