Making homemade guacamole can be kinda tricky. Use this simple recipe to achieve the best result.
It's best to make the guacamole the day of the game to prevent it from browning. The extra lime juice prevents discoloration but immediately putting the guacamole into an airtight container also will help the guac stay green.
4 ripe avocados (if your grocery has a discount produce section, check there—ripe ones are often discounted)
1/2 red onion, medium-sized
1 plum tomato
2 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
The juice of one lime
1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped (optional)
Cut the avocados in half, twist and remove the seed. Scoop out the insides of the avocados and place in a large mixing bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork until there are no large chunks. Chop the onion, tomato, jalapeño (if you want guacamole with a kick) and cilantro. Add the chopped ingredients to the avocado. Mix well. Cut the lime into two and juice the two halves directly into the bowl. Mix the lime juice well and add kosher salt to taste.
Guacamole can be served as is in the bowl or served more creatively in a bread bowl or in the discarded avacado shells. Accompany guacamole with tortilla chips, pretzels or cut-up vegetables.
