2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Kosher or sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 ripe tomato, pulp and seeds removed, diced
1 clove garlic, minced

Spanish style guacamole recipe


1) Make sure avocados are ripe by gently pushing on the outside of the skin. If the skin gives a little, it is ripe and good to use. Cut each avocado in half and remove the seed.

2) With a spoon, scoop out the inside of the avocado from the peel and put into a mixing bowl.

3) Using a fork, smash the avocado in the bowl. Leave large chunks or smash until smooth, depending on your preference.

4) Add chopped onion, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Smash the mixture more to mix in all ingredients.

5) Test Serrano peppers before adding to mixture to gauge hotness. Add 1/4 to 1/2 of a pepper and mix well. Taste the mixture before adding additional minced pepper. Wash hands immediately after handling peppers.

6) Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving. Just before serving, add tomatoes to the mixture. Adding too soon will make the guacamole runny.

This simple way to make guacamole will serve anywhere from two to four people, and can be adjusted by adding or subtracting an ingredient depending on each chef’s individual tastes.

Spanish Guacamole Recipe Variations And Tips

For example, leave out the tomatoes or instead add salsa to the mixture. Some individuals prefer a little tanginess to their guacamole and advocate adding a small splash of vinegar during the initial mixing stage. One to two tablespoons of sour cream may be added to create a creamier guacamole, and, alternately, cottage cheese can be added to make the dip chunkier. Tabasco or other hot sauce can be added into the main mixture or in individual servings for those who prefer their Spanish guacamole recipe to be extra-spicy.
