Here’s an easy homemade guacamole recipe that’s great with chips or spread on a sandwich.
This is one of my favorite go to recipes. Perfect to serve as a snack or on Cinco de Mayo. You can adjust the heat by adding more jalapeño pepper. I used half of a small pepper and removed some of the seeds and white pith that make a jalapeño hot.
Ingredients To Make Guacamole
Choose avocados that are ripe and firm. You don't want it to feel mushy anywhere on the skin. And don't choose any avocados that have marks or blemishes on them.
