Brett's Famous Guacamole

Guacamole is one of those dishes that's incredibly easy to make, yet lots of people think that it can only be found at a Mexican restaurant. This recipe is from one of our designers who's native to Mexico City and designed our best-selling Sausalito Dinnerware and the rustic Agave Collection that we've presented as part of the Tequila Party. With this recipe, you can easily make great, fresh guacamole at home – and you can do it in about 5 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • ½ medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced, no pulp
  • 2 roasted garlic cloves mashed
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 Serrano chile pepper, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, plus a stem or two for garnish
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced, no pulp
  • 2 roasted garlic cloves mashed
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar

Preparation:

  • Take the avocado and slice it around the pit lengthwise, until you can pull it apart. The pit will stay on one side. Take your knife and hit the knife edge into the pit, then turn the pit and it will pop out. Scoop the flesh of the avocado from the skin. Place in a bowl and mix all of the ingredients, making it however chunky or smooth you like. Transfer to a clean bowl and garnish with a stem or two of cilantro. Serve with chips – and enjoy!
