Who doesn’t like a good Guacamole? Well here is my very lazy way of making guacamole! The most important thing about Guacamole is that the avocados have to be perfectly ripe, even a little over-ripe is okay. The avocado is ripe when it is firm to touch but it gives to gentle pressure when it is squeezed.

Ingredients

3 ripe avocados ripened

1 medium onion

3-4 jalapenos ( optional)

2 plum tomatoes or a handful or grape tomatoes

1 lemon or 2 limes

Onion, tomato, jalapeno & cilantro in food processor

3-4 tablesoons of vinegar

1/2 a bunch of cilantro leaves

Dash of sugar

Salt & pepper to taste

  • Put the onion, jalapenos, tomatoes and cilantro in the food processor and pulse a few times till the mixture is finely chopped. It should not be mushy.
  • Scoop out the flesh from the avocados and mix with the onion mixture in a bowl.
  • Add the juice of lemon/lime and vinegar – this has to be adjusted to taste.
  • Add salt & pepper
  • Add a little bit of sugar and mix everything very well.
  • Serve with tortillas chips or crackers

To store the gucamole I keep the pits of the avocado in the container with the guacamole, cover it tight with plastic wrap and then put the lid on. This helps keep it fresh for a day or two extra.
