Sure, we could go forever and a day jazzing up our guacamole (adding in charred corn! fresh goat cheese! tons of herbs! mango!) but most of the time we keep it super simple. Like a well-executed margarita, we believe good guacamole doesn’t really need anything more than really good quality avos, fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt.
The Simplest Most Classic Guacamole Recipe
- 4 medium firm-ripe avocados
- 1 small Lime juiced (about 1/2 ounce)
- 1/2 small jalapeño chile seeded and minced
- Pinch sea salt
- Make The Guacamole: Split and pit the avocados then scoop the flesh into a mixing bowl. Break the avocados up with a spoon or back of a fork until just broken up. Stir in the lime juice, salt, and jalapeño. Taste, and add more seasoning as desired.
