Let’s celebrate Mexican heritage and culture! And what party spread is complete without guacamole?

Here’s how to make the best guacamole to impress all your friends at the party.

The best guacamole is created two ways:

  • The right proportion of fresh ingredients
  • Extracting flavor from those ingredients

With guacamole, a few simple ingredients can create magic;

And it’s the right proportion of these ingredients that hits all the right textures and flavors:

  • Creaminess from the avocado
  • Brightness and acidity from the lime
  • Heat from the jalapeno pepper
  • Spiciness and bite from the onion
  • Garden freshness from the cilantro

To make our guacamole experience extra-healthy, let’s skip the chips.

Instead, use strips of red and orange bell peppers.

You’ll be surprised how well they go with the guacamole.

The best way to extract flavor and juices from the ingredients is to use a molcajete, a large mortar and pestle made from volcanic stone.

It has a rough surface which is perfect for grinding and breaking down ingredients.

You’ll begin by grinding up the onion, jalapeno pepper, and cilantro (and optional garlic) until they form a wet paste.

Then add the avocado and mash with a fork.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

Purchasing and Using a Molcajete

A molcajete is the perfect way to make the best guacamole.

With it, you can grind the onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, and garlic to release their juices and flavors. 

This is the molcajete I recommend and it can be purchased here.

NOTE: To handle and cut the jalapeno pepper, use rubber gloves.

Afterwards, wash your cutting board and knife with hot water and soap.

Be careful not to touch the peppers with your bare hands and touch your eyes.
