While on the hunt to find some good guac with a friend after the Museum Mile Festival, I cracked up as I relayed a story about how a friend watched the server at the midtown Mama Mexico prepare fresh guacamole before our eyes, and sighed, "man, this is my favorite batch of guacamole in the city, I wish I could buy this in the store." I shook my head and said, "are you kidding me? The server practically showed you how to make it. I mean, you can do this at home!"
Apparently, "you" really means "me" and I made this guacamole recipe the very next day- easy enough, even if the server doesn't make it in front of you.
* 3 ripe avocados, peeled & pitted
* 2 plum tomatoes, diced
* 2 jalapenos, seeded & diced
* 1 small onion, diced
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
* 1 lime
* salt & pepper to taste
1) In a medium bowl, mash together avocados, onion, garlic, cilantro, and the juice of half the lime. Add tomatoes, jalapenos, and the remainder of the cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt & pepper as you like (I use about a little less than a teaspoon of each) and mix well. Refrigerate before serving.
