This Easy Guacamole recipe is incredibly tasty and has the perfect amount of acidity and heat. What makes it so special is the smokiness of the charred jalapeno. This technique transforms good guacamole into a stratospherically divine dip that can be eaten on its own by the spoonful.
I usually make doubles of this easy guacamole recipe because my husband scarfs down a bowl of it as soon as I am done mashing and stirring! I must admit that I am also guilty of dipping my fingers into the bowl as I am making the guacamole and doing an unreasonable amount of taste tests. Nothing beats freshly made guacamole!
I used to buy pre-made guacamole because I didn’t think I could create one as delicious as what I found in good Mexican restaurants. But after reading and familiarizing myself a little with Mexican food and its ingredients, I realized it didn’t have to be complicated! An easy guacamole recipe is 10 times better than pre-made guacamole and just as delicious as what they prepare in front of you when you are eating out.Print
