I have to say I’ve tried a lot of guac recipes and none have measured up to the Looneyspoons one! A Canadian sister team who have put out the best cookbooks ever in my opinion. There are very few recipes I have tried in their books, that we haven’t liked. Everyone in our house LOVES the guacamole! Now I’ve made it A LOT so I don’t measure things and have modified – as most people do with their favourites! So here it is… With some personal modifications
Mash them up
1/2 a cup of minced onion – red or Spanish and if ya don’t have that just use a regular onion for goodness sakes! It doesn’t have to be perfect!!!
1 jalapeño pepper – now if ya take the seeds out if won’t be spicy but I like a good kick in the pants, just sayin
2 TBSP lemon juice – taste it and if ya want more, put more!
1/2 tsp salt
A lot of garlic – seriously it all depends on your garlic – if you have good local garlic then 2 tsp or 2-3 cloves is enough but if you have the crappy garlic from far away…. Then much much more… Taste your food!!!!
1/2 tsp cumin
Mix er up and put the avacado pits in so the guac doesn’t go brown!
It will be gone before you know it
