Notes from Mom Soper:
This makes enough for a small gathering but the recipe is easy to double, triple or quadruple!
I developed the recipe by trial & error, and settled on the proportions 1:1:1 for the avocado, garlic, & lime juice, with 1/4-1/2 tsp salt per avocado.
I like my guacamole simple–no tomatoes, cilantro, onion, sour cream etc. (although I love all those things–just not in my gauc!)
I mash and mix it by hand, because I like it a little chunky. Using a mixer smoothed it out too much for me.
Fresh ingredients are best, of course, but I have used minced garlic from a jar, and even garlic powder in a pinch. Same with the lime juice–I usually just use bottled juice.
Use with caution: I took this guacamole to a party, and my pregnant daughter (who was, admittedly, almost 2 weeks overdue), went into labor and gave birth the next day.
