Why I Love This Recipe
Who doesn't love a good guacamole? It's so much better fresh than anything you'd buy at the store and super easy to make. It's also very versatile - you can add almost any ingredient to it --
such as celery! While pulling out ingredients from the fridge to make fresh guac, I noticed we had celery and thought - hmmm would that be fun in the guacamole? It would add a nice crisp and make the recipe chunky and easier to grab with a chip. So I tried it an man, it's delish! Gives the guac a crunch. Be careful though - a little celery goes a long way. Next time I'd dice it fine to the celery is in smaller pieces. I hope you like this as much I do.
Ingredients You'll Need
One ripe avocado
1 or 2 limes (depending on how tangy you want it to be)
half a Celery Stick
If you're not familiar with how to cut an avocado - simply cut the avocado in half and twist it apart. Then, tap seed in center with a knife (stab it with blade end of knife) so seed sticks to knife and you can pop it out. You're kind of using it like an ax - it will pop right out without much effort. Then use a spoon and scoop out avocado from skin. Add avocado to bowl and mash up. It's ok if it's a little chunky.
Slice celery in thin slices (maybe even dice it). Add to bowl.
Dice onion up - you can use as much or as little as you like. I use enough to fill palm of hand when diced. Remember this is just for two people so you don't need a lot of onion. If you add too much onion or ingredients, you can add another avocado to make it creamy. Add to bowl. You seriously can't ruin or destroy this recipe.
Cut limes in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl (over all the other ingredients). I used one lime and my husband said it needed more. However, I don't need the recipe to be tangy, so one was fine for me.
For the cilantro - you have to buy a bushelle, but you only need about 10 stems. I ripped off leaves from each stem and then finely chopped into small pieces. Add to bowl.
Mix and serve in bowl.
Serve with tortilla chips.
I added a video to show you how to remove the seed. There's also a cute way to cut avocados if you want to get fancy.
Pairs Well With
Margaritas of course, but I just had this with a coke and it was delish.
