Hi friends! And welcome back to another Taco Tuesday post! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared one, but with warmer temps coming it just feels like TACO TIME! I started this Taco Tuesday series last year while we were quarantined so we could still enjoy our fave Mexican food at home- you can catch up on all Taco Tueday past posts HERE. I have shared lots of the basics as building blocks and today I am sharing another one: our homemade guacamole recipe.
This recipe is easy to put together and definitely helps elevate your Taco Tuesday spread. Of course this “It’s five o-guac somewhere” bowl makes everything more festive! Such a great hostess gift for the Mexican food lover.
EASY GUACAMOLE RECIPE
4 Ripe Haas Avocados
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
8 dashes of hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup of small-diced red onion (1 small onion)
1 large garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 medium tomato, seeded, and small diced
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pits and scoop out of their shells into a large bowl.
Immediately add the lemon juice, hot pepper sauce, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and toss well.
Using a sharp knife, slice through the avocados in the bowl until they are finely diced.
Add the tomatoes.
Mix well and taste for salt and pepper.
