Matt's Guacamole

I enjoyed this guacamole on vacation.  My cousin's fiance Matt made it for us.  Matt is the person I know who is closest to a "foodie."  When dog-sitting, he was able to make use of all my CSA produce.  He routinely grocery shops in the Strip District of Pittsburgh to get the best available items. When I needed to unload some Alton Brown tickets, Matt and Ashley were pumped to go.

The foodie quality that Matt possesses means that he just knows how to make things based on experience.  He could give me the gist of this recipe, but not exact measurements.  In my normal "Kelly-way", I decided I wanted to make this guac but didn't have all the stuff so I improvised.  I will continue to make this...keeping better records.


  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt
  • jalapeno
  • 2 avocados, peeled and seeded
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • few tablespoons of red onion
  • cilantro
  • plum tomato, seeded (optional)

  1. Mince garlic, add salt until a paste-like substance forms.
  2. Add jalapeno. Mix.  Add avocado.  Mix.
  3. Add lime juice and some red onion. Mix.  
  4. End with cilantro.

Time: 10 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
