Guacamole is one of those foods that surprised me by their simplicity when I made the first time. It’s something that you can’t get wrong. Even on your bad kitchen days.
I have never tried any other recipe than Ina Garten’s. I found this one so good right from the beginning that there was no need to experiment. Guests have praised this guacamole too.
In her book and on the Food Network website the recipe uses 4 avocados. I found that too much (even when we have guests who would only eat it as a dip) and made adjustments toward one avocado. It can easily be doubled or tripled or use the original recipe with 4 avocados.
In any way, it will be yum!! That I can promise you.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pips. Scoop the flesh out of their shells into a medium bowl. Mash with a fork. Immediately add lemon juice, Tabasco sauce, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper and stir well. Add the tomatoes. Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
