Alright, that may be a bold statement. That said, I do think that this is a pretty great recipe, and it tends to disappear very quickly at parties. It’s also easy to modify, if you want to throw in a handful of cherry tomatoes, or substitute fresh jalapeños for the pickled ones. Just make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe — it makes all the difference.
This guacamole also goes very well with tacos or on sandwiches — but my favorite way is the most simple, with some good corn chips and a beer, and summer doesn’t feel quite so far away.
The Best Guacamole
4 avocados, pitted and sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
2-3 tablespoons pickled jalapeños, chopped (or to taste)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup cilantro chopped
1 teaspoon Sriracha, or to taste
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper
Scoop out avocado from peel into a medium bowl. Add onion, garlic, jalapeños, cilantro, and Sriracha, and mash with a fork until mixed together but avocado is still slightly chunky. Stir in lime juice and season well with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
