In our house, Henry is in charge of making guacamole ’cause his version is my favorite. The ingredient list is short, and it’s a breeze to make. Easy does it, right?
Wanna see? Take a peek after the jump!
Here’s what to gather to serve 4 people:
- 3 avocados
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1 small shallot, minced
- salt (approximately 3 generous finger-pinches of Kosher salt)
- freshly ground pepper
- Aleppo pepper (optional)
Here’s the easy-peasy instructions:
Gather and prep your ingredients…
In a medium bowl, combine the minced shallot, salt, and lime juice. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Pit and peel avocados. Take half of the flesh and mash it in a bowl with a fork.
Pour the lime mixture into the bowl and combine with the mashed avocado.
Dice the remainder of the avocado flesh into ¾-inch cubes and gently incorporate into the mixture in the bowl.
Add freshly ground pepper and Aleppo pepper (if desired) to taste.
Put this condiment on any and everything or just spoon it directly into your mouth.13
