The Secrets Of Making A Mean Guac at Home!

The Ingredients That Scream 'Authentic'

We start our culinary mission with the avocados. But not just any avocado! We’re talking about the good, ripe ones that give a little under the thumb's gentle push. I can already hear some of you thinking, "Great! an avocado expedition. Just what I needed." Take heart, my dear friend, you're one step closer to a world-class Guac. Now, we add in a dash of freshly squeezed lime juice that brings out the pop in every bite, a finely chopped onion (here's your chance to shed a few tears of joy), the infamous Serrano chile (because it’s never a party without a kick, right?), coriander, and last but not least, a fair sprinkle of salt. And don't worry, no one's going to turn into a salty prawn: it merely elevates the rich, creamy flavors of the avocado.

The 'Mash or Dice' Showdown

The showdown between Team Mash and Team Dice for the authentic texture is age-old. While the mashing enthusiasts believe in a creamy, puree-like texture, the dicing clan vouches for chunky bits leaving an explosion of flavor in every mouthful. Well, guess what? In our recipe, everyone's a winner. We mash lightly, preserving some of the avocado chunks, thus creating the perfect blend of cream and crunch. There you have it, dear readers!
