The very best guacamole

15 12 2007

I don’t brag about much, but I have yet to eat a guacamole as good as mine. In fact, I’ve had a number of people tell me that they, themselves, make the best guacamole, but end up liking mine better. To be honest, I’ve stumbled upon the ingredients through experimentation, taking my cues from my own personal tastes and the comments of people who eat my dip. So, I’d like to share it with you. For those that may not be familiar with it, guacamole is an avocado dip. However, its what you put into it that makes the big difference. My experience has been that most places simply under-season their dip. Guacamole is the ubiquitous side dish for everything Mexican, and most restaurants just don’t do it justice.

Now, I’m going to list the ingredients here, but the ultimate taste depends on you. I’ll make suggestions, but you will need to modify each ingredient to your liking.

  • Haas avocados
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cumin
  • Lemon Juice
  • Pico de gallo
  • Ancho chile powder (optional)
