- 2 ripe avocados
- Juice from 1 lime
- ½ teaspoon of cumin - optional
- ½ teaspoon of garlic powder or 2 garlic cloves - minced
- 2 tablespoons chopped green or white onion
- Chopped cilantro - a small handful (about ¼ cup)
- 1 Jalapeno pepper - diced (remove some of the seeds and membranes if you do not want it too spicy, but leave more in if you like some heat.)
- Sea Salt to taste
- Optional add-ins crumbled bacon, sour cream, chopped tomatoes, roasted corn,
- Mash the avocado with a fork leaving some chunks to give it some texture. Fold in remaining ingredients adding juice from only half of the lime to start. Taste and add more of any ingredient to suit your preferences.
- Guacamole needs a decent amount of salt to bring out the flavor so please don't skimp here.
- The taste from the lime should be present, but not overpowering so you may or may not need more than the juice from half the lime.
- Alternatively you can take the jalapeno, garlic cloves, cilantro and sea salt and chop and mash into a paste. Add to the avocado with other ingredients. This spreads the flavor out a bit more and is a common technique for making authentic guacamole.
