Traditional Mexican Guacamole


I do have a tried and true, favorite way to make guacamole but boredom set in and I wanted to try something new. I resisted the temptation to add the things to this recipe that I’m so familiar with doing, trying to stay true to the recipe. But I just had to cut back on the tomatoes; a full cup for two little old avocados seemed more like salsa! So I did reduce the tomatoes to just a half cup and I’m sure I didn’t add as much onion or cilantro as called for either

. I stuck to the remainder of the recipe faithfully and took the submitter’s suggestion to throw in some fresh minced jalapeno pepper, but considerably less than the one pepper directed. Hubs and I both thought this was pretty good, but just a tad too lemony as I kind of figured it would be as I was mixing this up. The bottom line is that keeping in mind that I reduced all ingredients but the lemon (and should have done so with that too), I think this would be remarkably better if the exact recipe simply called for three avocados rather than two.

I am just trying it! What a great taste. Big thumbs-up from my husband. I didn’t have fresh jalapenos on hand, so used a jar of pickled jalapenos. For fresh tomatoes, same thing; used a can of diced tamatoes. It was just great. I first put usual pepper but saw the black ground pepper notation and added that to the mix. What a difference it makes! Sadly no more chips to scoop it up! This one will go into my recipe box.

Very good recipe. In my opinion, though, traditional guacamole contains simply avocado and salt. I omitted the cilantro only because I’m one of the people who don’t like it and I didn’t use lemon juice. I thought the tomato/avocado ratio didnt work for me. Too much tomato for the scant avocado used.The jalapeños added a nice kick. All in all a good recipe.

The only difference is that I use the juice of a fresh lime instead of lemon juice. I just like that particular citrus better with avocado. And I used 2 Florida avocados which are considerably larger than Haas so the amount of the other ingredients don’t overshadow the avocado. This combination of flavors is a hit to all who have tried it. If you use Haas for this recipe, make sure you use at least 4 of them or cut down on the other ingredients in my opinion. Thanks for sharing Kaersten!
