almost every thursday we head over to our friends’ house for tacos. typically a big crowd shows up, anywhere from 8 to 20 or so folks come over, and the berres always host. how do they host this dinner each week with out going broke? they ask everyone to bring one item, and do tacos every time to simplify things. the last 2 weeks we have been in charge of the guacamole, so i thought i’d share my method.
i use fresh ingredients, no mixes or pastes. for our group (which can put down some guac) i use 8 large avocados, 2 tomatoes, half an onion, and sometimes one bunch of cilantro.

cut the avocados in half.

de-pit those beauties. watch your fingers. you’ll see why.

scoop out the goodness. get all the way down to the skin.

taking out the pit is the hardest part. this is not my first avocado injury.

mash up those avocados with your trusty potato masher. then add salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and garlic to taste. squeeze the juice of 2 limes on top and then stir.
this dip is husband approved. he tests it to make sure all the spices are just right.

there you go, delicious guacamole for 10-12 people. make some to share.

  1. Guac is pretty much my favorite food! I eat it all summer long and it’s not too bad for you! Do you whack the pit with a knife then twist to get the pit out? I find that’s the easiest way for me, except don’t hold it while you do that because I’ve had pretty deep cuts myself from the same method.

  2. Ouch!

    I’m happy you’re an avocado lover (and guac lover- me too!)…but watch your fingers. You can check this link for How to open an Avocado (sans injuries)http://preview.tinyurl.com/y5z9o3j

    Boy, we could have a whole blog post on different ways people open avocados…ummm with and without injuring themselves 🙂

  3. I make guac every week! (that’s what happens when you live in mexico, i guess) although I wanna try your version, with more spices.

    Thanks for stopping by my site! If you have any questions about your trip to Playa, just lemme know and I’ll see if I can give you some insider tips haha.
