If you live in Los Angeles like I do, it’s practically mandatory to like guacamole. We have easy access to ripe, delicious avocados, so it’s easy to get fall in love with them. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that there are plenty of restaurants that serve their own version of guacamole, so I can pop in at any time and indugle.
My first memories of guacamole actually come from my time spent in Mexico. My family and I would head the beach and order chips, salsa and guac. The chips at the restaurants in Mexico were no joke. They we thick, deep fried and delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I had a slight bulging belly as a kid. Who knew what carbs were at that age?!
There are so many different ways to make guacamole, and that’s another reason why I love it. So darn versatile. My Easy Guacamole recipe below, however, is a rather simple one. If you get around to making it, you have to also make my Ceviche Tostadas and plop the guacamole goodness on top.
You’ll notice that instead of using regular salt to season my avocado mixture, I opted for Tajin chile seasoning, and it’s a perfect pairing. The Tajin seasoning has a lime essence, so it just enhances the lime juice in the mashed up guacamole. Another thing you’ll love? This guacamole recipe is easy. Once it’s ready, serve it with some corn tortilla chips and an iced cold Corona. Cheers!
1. Remove exterior and seeds from avocados. Place in a medium bowl.
2. Add all ingredients except Tajin seasoning and mash the with a fork.
3. Once your reach your desired guacmole texture, sprinkle with Tajin (I started with a quarter of teaspoon) and stir. Taste. Add more Tajin season if necessary and stir again. Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
