It's Just Guac
And really, that's ALL it is. I've told you before, folks. Most of if not all recipes we throw up here won't be difficult and half the time you'll probably wonder why in the hell I'm even posting such nonsense. Well, maybe someone doesn't know how to make guacamole, or microwave a doughnut, or pour milk over their cereal. Take it in stride and if this is all too far beneath you then you better be getting paid to cook otherwise you can zip your damn lid.
Now, here's the breakdown. Quick, easy, scrumptious. Most recipes for guac usually call for all of these ingredients. Or maybe they don't????
- 3 AVOCADOS
- 1/2 RED ONION
- 2 ROMA TOMATOES
- 2-3 CLOVES OF GARLIC
- 1 BUSHEL OF CILANTRO
- 1 LIME
- 1/2 OF A JALAPENO
- 1/2 OF A SERRANO CHILE
You're going to scoop out the avocados and mash them up in a mixing bowl. Set aside and get ready to slice n' dice the following items: Roma tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno and Serrano chili. You don't have to cut these up too finely but I wouldn't get too chunky out there. We're not looking to do the Truffle Shuffle (see what I did there?). However, it's your call. If you like 'em thick then by all means....keep it big.
You can mince the garlic or cut it up. I guess that would depend on the utensils populating your kitchen.
Now dump all of that goodness into your mixing bowl. Cut your lime in half and squeeze those puppies over your heap of ingredients. Squeeze 'em like you'd squeeze your lover's buns. Well....maybe that's a bit of a hard grab on the hams but you've got the gist now....you're on a roll and almost prepared to spread this creamy love all over the football party you're definitely hosting right now.
Toss/Sprinkle/Lebron-James-Pregame-dust-throw some salt and pepper right into that bowl. Once you're there mix it all up and ennnnjoy!
You can change all this shit up to your liking of course. I didn't follow any guidelines to a 'T'. If you like it hotter, go with a full jalapeno and Serrano chili. Or, if you can't stand the heat and you've left the kitchen, take the jalapeno total down to a 1/4 or none at all. Play with it! But whatever you do....enjoy it. Best served cold surrounded by family and/or friends.
Dig in & dig often.
