Ohhhhhh guacamole! Guacamole is amazing. Burritos, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, tortas.... all made better with guacamole. I'll even smear it on a deli sandwich. And of course, it's easily the best dip for chips. Then to add some cilantro and lime? For me, cilantro and lime are a match made in heaven, and should be put in anything and everything that's acceptable. Enter, cilantro lime guacamole.
11 years ago, I showed up at my dear friend's house and ate some heavenly guacamole. I had only ever made it with a packet and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. She told me to use some fresh onion, and some spices. Over the years, I tweaked it and added and tried different things. One day, I decided to add cilantro and lime and landed on this perfection. It's got a tang of lime, the creamy deliciousness of avocado, a kick of spice (if you add the jalapeno) and cilantro goodness.
To Make Cilantro Lime Guacamole:
Cilantro lime guacamole comes together quickly. Making it is as simple as chopping a few things and measuring a few things. Then mixing them all together and done! I make mine thick and chunky. However, if you like it smooth, feel free to puree it and make it as smooth as you want. Also, I like to make it ahead of time so it can sit in the fridge for a few hours. Pro tip: put the pits in the guacamole before storing to keep it from oxidizing and turning brown as quickly! The lime juice also helps with this.
Guacamole makes everything better. Who isn't happy to open the fridge and see a bowl of mouth-watering guacamole? It makes the perfect side to bring to almost any party or gathering and is a true crowd pleaser. People are always happy to see guacamole!Print
