When Saturday nights roll around, we take advantage of any opportunity to get together with friends and have a Taco Bar! I got in such a hurry making this one that I failed at making many pictures. I was in a time crunch. There’s a lot of manual prep work when you’re prepping food for tacos!
8 ripe medium avocados, diced
1-2 limes, juiced
1 jalapeno, diced
½ medium red onion, diced
2-3 medium cloves of garlic, minced
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1 large bunch cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Cut avocados in half and remove seed. Cut the flesh into squares, scoop the flesh out with a spoon and add to a mixing bowl. Squeeze lime juice over avocado squares. Dice the onion, jalapeno and tomatoes, then add to the avocado. Chop the cilantro and mince the garlic over the mixture and stir well. Salt and pepper to taste.
If you like a chunky guacamole stop here. If you like a smoother guacamole, take a mixer to it for just a minute, it will give it a much creamer texture. Chill for 1 hr before serving.
Sometimes we make the chunky version, but this time we made it creamy. This is usually the last thing that we make right before guests arrive. If it sits any length of time, it will change colors.
