Adrian's Summer Entertaining Series: Guacamole

I'm so glad to have Adrian back here again. This time, he'll be sharing his guacamole recipe. Something about this guacamole. Makes you want to eat an entire bag of tortilla chips. Consider yourself warned.

Hello, I'm back. Like I promised. Or maybe threatened. I'm here to share my "secret" guacamole recipe. It's very simple, but it ends up tasting really good.

Here's what you'll need for the Arvizu Guacamole:
- Three avocados
- One or two tomatoes, depending on how much you like them
- Half an onion
- A half a bunch of fresh cilantro
- Two serrano peppers. Do not use jalapeƱos unless you absolutely cannot find serrano peppers.
- Some salt, again depending on your tastes
- Juice from half a lime

And the steps:
1) Chop the onions, tomatoes, peppers and cilantro.  Cut the peppers in half and, with a small knife, remove the seeds because they are not good for you.
2) Throw all these in a mixer (or in a bowl to use a hand mixer).
3) Slice the avocados in half. Save the pits, you'll need them later.
4) Scoop out the avocado with a spoon on to the ingredients in the mixing bowl. Tip: For easy removal, make small horizontal and vertical slits across the avocado.
5) Squeeze the half a lime on top of everything in the bowl and add a bit of salt.
6) Turn your mixer on low and mix everything together until creamy.
7) Give it a taste and add more salt, if you'd like. Tip: If you're planning to eat this guacamole with chips, don't add too much salt because most chips come with salt. You don't want salty guacamole on a salty chip.

Final Tip: Add the pits to the finished guacamole. This and the lime juice will help the guacamole keep longer.

And there you go, you've got some good guacamole ready to go. I recommend El Milagro tortilla chips. And, of course, don't forget that this guacamole goes great with my Paloma recipe from last week!

So there you have it, friends. Straight from the Mexican chef's mouth. Check back next Wednesday for more Adrian and less me.

  5. Interesting that Adrian's recipe conflicts with Gumma's. (Gumma is our grandmother who makes the most amazing guacamole... seriously, people ask her to make it for them to bring to parties!!) Gumma's doesn't have lime or cilantro because she says it's not authentic... hmmm do I sense a Mexican street fight?!
