Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and we are planning to make delicious Mexican food! Of course it wouldn’t be complete without guacamole to top our tacos and dip our chips into.
Aaron taught me how to make guacamole many years ago and his is by far my favorite. The smoothness of the avocado and crisp bite of onion with the cilantro and lime juice, there’s just nothing better.
When adding raw onion to recipes, I put my diced onion in a mesh strainer and run it under cold water for a few seconds to “de-fire” them. This removes some of the bite and heat of the onion.
This is a pretty basic and simple recipe that tastes great. If you want to add in some tomato, green pepper, or mango that would be great. This is a starting off point for adding your own spin. Try this guacamole on my Potato Chip Crusted Fish Tacos.
