Delicious Guacamole recipe

What a beautiful day... to cook at the beach!
We made this easy and delicious guacamole just a few miles South of San Francisco, near Half Moon Bay.

Guacamole is the perfect snack for entertaining. Everybody loves it and it's very easy to make. Be sure to pick good avocados: they should be pretty black and slightly mushy. Stay away from green and firm avocados - they are not quite ready yet!

Here's the list of ingredients:
  • avocados 
  • tomatoes
  • fresh cilantro
  • green or white onions
  • jalapeños
  • lime juice
  • salt & pepper
Just to give you an idea of proportions: for every 3 avocados, 1 tomato, half jalapeño, half onion or 2 or 3 green onions. It's not exact, but we find it quite nicely balanced done this way.

The key to a nice guacamole is to chop the ingredients very small (concassé). Start with the onions, follow with tomatoes and jalapeños. Mash the avocados with a fork and sprinkle with lime juice right away, so they don't get black. Finish with fresh cilantro, salt and pepper.

Now go get some tortilla chips and dig in!
