Holé guacamolé! We used to say that all the time as kids as a term of exclamation. Now I just say it with my eyes closed when I savour a mouthful of truly holy guacamole. I take great pride in my guacamole. My mother-in-law declared she didn't like guacamole and I said, "Here, try mine" and she said "Ooh I like this guacamole". There you go.
I like my guacamole made with simple, fresh ingredients. There are so many variations, but I love the combination of spicy garlic, tangy citrus and fresh cilantro with the buttery taste of the avocado.
A nice ripe avocado
1 tomato (or a handful of cherry tomatoes)
1 lemon or lime
1 clove of garlic
Handful fresh cilantro
Dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt.
Optional: pinch of cumin
Chop everything up and toss into a bowl.
Top with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream and the lemon juice (or lime), mix it up well.
I used to purée my guacamole quite smooth, but lately I've been leaving it a little chunky. Mash to taste.
Eat it up with tortilla chips or pita chips!
