I am having fish tacos and I wanted some guacamole to go with it. This is so simple it is barely a recipe. I know that some people really “doctor up” guacamole, but I think that a good ripe avocado just needs a bit of lime juice to prevent it from turning brown.
Karl’s Quick Guacamole
3 ripe avocados
1. Juice the lime, about one tablespoon.
2. Remove the avocado from the skins and place it in a bowl.
Tip: I cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. I score the flesh inside the skins, running the knife blade several times through the flesh in both directions without breaking the skin. I then scoop the diced flesh directly into the bowl.
3. Pour the lime juice over the avocado chunks and mash it into a paste.
Tip: How much you mash your avocados is a personal choice. You may just toss the chunks in the lime juice to coat them with the juice to prevent them from turning brown. You may also mash the pieces of avocado into a chunky paste or until it is smooth and creamy.
4. Serve on the side of any taco dish or just with corn chips as a dip.
