Guacamole is one of those dishes that many people tend to overcomplicate. But the best guacamoles are the simple ones.
If you're from Long Island or have travelled here, you may have heard of Riverhead Ciderhouse. At the Ciderhouse, they have this wonderful woman who manages a made to order guacamole cart. She makes fresh guacamole for you or your table out of a stone mortar that not only creates a colorful presentation but a fresh and delicious snack. Which no matter what, is always to die for. But, why? The answer, keeping things simple and fresh!
Guacamole should consist of less than 10 ingredients, including any spices you may add for your taste. My recipe only calls for 5, and I do my very best to use the freshest ingredients available. I typically use red onion, tomato, ripe avocados, and tajin for spice (the mix is the perfect blend), but the key ingredient to any guacamole isn't the avocados, it's fresh lime juice!
3 halved and pitted avocados
1 diced tomato
1/2 small red onion
1 tbsp of Tajin
1 whole lime, juiced
Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
Combine all chopped and prepared ingredients into a blow and mix with a fork or spoon until your desired guacamole consistency.
