The Very Best {EVER} Guacamole

I really love all things avocado.  And, anytime I get a chance to cook with them, I jump on it.

Avocado

I’ve featured a ton of avocado recipes here on NTTC, including Avocado-Bacon Stuffed BurgersSpinach-Avocado Quesadillas, Creamy Avocado-Tomato-Cucumber Salad,  and, most recently, Chocolate Avocado Mousse…. and the list goes on!

What I don’t understand is why I haven’t yet shared my favorite guacamole recipe… it is seriously the best guacamole I’ve ever eaten.

I had this version for the first time at my friend Marissa’s house years ago, and it has been my go-to ever since.  It simply has the PERFECT combination of all the fresh ingredients that make guacamole the best-dip-ever!  Thanks, Phill, for sharing your recipe so many years back… It continues to be my favorite!

3.  Add your serrano peppers and onion to the mixture, and mash them in.  Note:  I cheated and used my food processor to chop these bad boys up.

5.  Squeeze your fresh limes into the mixture.  Note:  For this batch, I only used one lime after tasting it.  Use as much as you prefer…

8.  Or… get super crazy, and build your own football field with the guacamole like I did for the Super Bowl this year.

Spread the guacamole in a rectangular pan.  Pipe sour cream on the guacamole to create the field yard lines.  Use cherry tomatoes to represent players on the field.

The final product looked a little something like this… Uh-Mazing.
