Today I’m sharing with you my favourite recipe for guacamole. There has been a lot of trial and error to get here. On this mission I once dumped about a tablespoon of salt into a bowl of guac 5 minutes before party guests were to arrive. Everyone politely told me they liked salty guac, but it was barley eaten so I know they were a bunch of liars! But I have finally nailed it and we have been enjoying this recipe along side of our favourite Mexican dishes all summer.
I like my guacamole to be fresh and cooling with a hint of heat, but feel free to add extra jalapeños if you like yours extra spicy. I also don’t add cilantro to my guacamole since I am in the percentage of people who hate cilantro and think it tastes like soap. It actually makes me sick. When I was in high school I was a cashier at a grocery store and whenever I would ring through cilantro I would hold my breath because even the smell made me feel sick, crazy right. Of course if you are a cilantro lover go for it! I wish I could join you!
This recipes is the perfect amount for 2-4 people, I like to serve it with chips, hot salsa, fajitas and a margarita.
So do you love or hate cilantro?
Servings: 2-4 people

In a bowl mash together avocados, minced onion, minced jalapeño, lime juice, salt, cumin and cilantro if using. Mix together until well combined and reaches your desired consistency. Serve with tortilla chips or alongside your Mexican favourites.
