@WarAngel what’s a good way to make guac?
This is a starting point:
These are the changes I would make on the top half:
If you can find some, Roma tomatoes taste better.
On the onions, go yellow (sweet)
Salt is salt, don't spend a lot, regular is fine.
Half a clove, otherwise it might overpower the other flavors.
If the pepper is hot, keep it to one but leave the seeds in. 🔥
Don't forget to add the pepper to taste.
***Completely optional but highly recommended: throw the above ingredients except the cilantro in a pan with a little bit of cooking oil - not olive oil - and roast the components until they begin to brown lightly and soften.*** The cilantro should never be roasted or only very very lightly.
For the bottom half of the recipe this is what I would change:
You can use two or three avocados but keep the pit. Mash them with a fork until it has a lumpy/creamy consistency, do not turn it into paste. Always keep the pit in the bowl with the guacamole.
start with the lime juice as prescribed but also consider adding a same amount of orange juice.
Salt is salt.
The last two items are not needed, but it'll you really want? Go for it. I wouldn't.
That cilantro I told you not to roast? Sprinkle it on top and mix it in.
ALWAYS KEEP AT LEAST ONE PIT WITH YOUR BOWL GUACAMOLE, EVEN IN STORAGE AS IT RETARDS OXIDATION AND CHANGES THE COLORATION. KEEP EVERYTHING WELL COVERED UNTIL READY TO SERVE, COLD.click to expand
