The Best Guacamole Ever
October 12, 2008 by arugulove
Last week, our CSA box had tomatoes, cilantro, and serrano peppers in it. So, we made guacamole. Not just any guacamole though. This is the best guacamole you will ever eat. Trust me.
First things first. The equiment. If you really love guacamole, treat yourself to the amazing William Sonoma Molcajete. Your wallet might say “ouch,” but your tacos will say “yum yum.”
I first witnessed the magic molcajete at Rosa Mexicano’s, the semi-posh Mexican chain restaurant that makes the most amazing guacamole ever. A wedding gift registry and a google search for the recipe were all I needed to be able to recreate it at home. If you don’t have the molcajete, this would probably work with a regular mortar and pestle.
So, I present to you, the best guacamole ever. Recipe courtesy of people on the internet who ripped off Rosa Mexicano’s.
2 Haas avocadoes
3 Tablespoon chopped onion
1 teaspoon chopped, seeded jalapeno chile
1 ½ teaspoon chopped cilantro
2 tablespoon chopped tomato
I used serrano peppers. You can leave in or remove the seeds, depending on how spicy you like it.
Combine 1 tablespoon of the chopped onions, ½ teaspoon of the chopped jalapeno and ½ teaspoon of the cilantro with ½ teaspoon of salt in the molcajete. Mash these ingredients into a paste. This releases all their oils and juices.
Roughly chop the avocadoes in large chunks and add it to the paste in the molcajete and fold to combine thoroughly.
Add the other ingredients, folding gently, taking care not to mash it too much.
And there you have it. Best guacamole ever.
