I really have to say, this is the best guacamole I’ve ever had. So fresh and so flavorful!
One thing I’ve learned over the years of making guac is that using a mixer (instead of forks to mash the avocados) is key. For one, it is way less time-consuming. And two, it helps to get the avocados nice and creamy while still leaving some little avocado chunks for texture.
I put all of the avocados in a large mixing bowl, add the lime juice, and then I mix them all together with the hand mixer until the consistency is pretty creamy.
Once you cream together the lime juice and avocados, you can just put everything else in – the onions, cilantro, tomatoes, salsa, and seasonings and stir with a regular spoon. The mixture is so creamy that the other ingredients just fold in so well and make themselves right at home in that guac!
Note: You can use store-bought salsa, but I always use my homemade salsa to add to the guac. I just can’t resist the freshness and zestiness that it brings to the dip!
Then that guac makes its home on a chip, and then that chip makes its home in my belly!
