No complications just avocado and 4 staple ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Simple, easy and delicious.
2 garlic cloves
1 shallot (finely minced)
2 tbsp. finely chopped cilantro leaves
2 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
salt and pepper (To taste)
To begin, use a mortar and pestle to mash the garlic until it is finely milled (you can also use a garlic press). Now, add the garlic to a mixing bowl. Halve the avocados, and use a spoon to remove the flesh from the shell and add it to the mixing bowl with the garlic. Now, use a fork to gently mash the avocado and combine it with the garlic (do not overdo it you want your guac to be a bit chunky).
Now, add the shallot, cilantro and lime juice to the avocado mixture and fold to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a salads, tacos, vegetables or chips.
To store in the fridge for a few hours or overnight, transfer to a bowl and place plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole to prevent air from reaching it. Then cover with an air tight lid.
