Guacamole

This is my all time favorite guacamole recipe!  Of everything I cook, this is the recipe I get asked for the most.  It is so delicious!  The recipe is modified only slightly from a recipe my sister gave me years ago.  The trick is in the garlic.  Hope you enjoy!

Guacamole

Ingredients:

whole garlic bulb

1/4 teaspoon olive oil

smidgen of sea salt, or less

4 avocados

2.5-3 limes

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

1/2 of a red onion, chopped

1 cup red pepper, chopped

1/2 tablespoon sea salt

1 1/2 teaspoon cumin

Directions:

  • Preheat over to 400 degrees.  Cut top off garlic bulb.  Wrap in foil, leaving the top open.  Drizzle with the 1/4 teaspoon olive oil and sprinkle with the smidgen of sea salt.  Bake at 400  degrees for 40 minutes.  (Pictured Below).
  • Place 4 avocados in a bowl.  Squeeze limes to add lime juice.  If you use a good squeezer, like the one pictured below, you will only need 2.5 limes (3 if you really like a strong lime flavor).  If you squeeze by hand, you will probably need 4 limes.
  • Mash avocado and lime together with masher.
  • Add cilantro, red onion, red pepper, 1/2 tablespoon sea salt, and cumin.  Stir.
  • When garlic is done, squeeze foil so garlic comes out.  It will squeeze right out.  Mix the cooked garlic into the guacamole.  Mash the cloves a bit to mix well.
  • You can eat immediately, but it’s best if it sits in the fridge a couple hours to let the flavors combine.
  • Enjoy!
