Guacamole. Smashed-up avocados blended with fresh pico de gallo and tart lime juice. A South Texas staple, for sure. And, despite what you may think, it’s pronounced “wak-a-molay”, not “gwac-a-mole”!
Guacamole is versatile…make it as spicy or as mild as you want, depending on how hot your pico is. If you really love the taste of cilantro and you find your pico deficient, feel free to add some chopped fresh to your guacamole. Same goes for the heat…crank it up with additional chopped serranos, jalapenos, or even the dreaded ghost pepper!
Because exposure to the air makes cut avocados turn brown quickly, you can extend the life of your guacamole by storing it in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator. Place fresh lemon slices directly on top of the guacamole before placing the cover on.
