The Best Guacamole

_MG_4139Alright, that may be a bold statement. That said, I do think that this is a pretty great recipe, and it tends to disappear very quickly at parties. It's also easy to modify, if you want to throw in a handful of cherry tomatoes, or substitute fresh jalapeños for the pickled ones. Just make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe -- it makes all the difference. _MG_4165 This guacamole also goes very well with tacos or on sandwiches -- but my favorite way is the most simple, with some good corn chips and a beer, and summer doesn't feel quite so far away.


The Best Guacamole

4 avocados, pitted and sliced into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 small red onion, finely diced

2-3 tablespoons pickled jalapeños, chopped (or to taste)

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup cilantro chopped

1 teaspoon Sriracha, or to taste

Juice of 1 lime

Salt and pepper

Scoop out avocado from peel into a medium bowl. Add onion, garlic, jalapeños, cilantro, and Sriracha, and mash with a fork until mixed together but avocado is still slightly chunky. Stir in lime juice and season well with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
