I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t like a good ole’ fashioned Taco Bar. So easy to prepare, perfect for a party.
And then there’s guacamole. Always an integral part of any taco bar or lonely chip. I like all guacs, and tend to make it different every time. Before I ever tried making it, I was convinced guacamole was this really hard thing to make…But it’s so easy to just wing it. Here’s a basic recipe:
- 5 avocados, pitted
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 cup chopped white or yellow onion
- 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 1 chopped tomato (if you like your guac “pure” you can leave this out)
- Juice of 1 lime
Toss everything into a bowl. Mash, and salt to taste. Serve with chips.
Other additions to consider:
- chopped red onion
- pickled jalepeno peppers, plus a few tbsp. vinegar from the jar
