The End All Be All of Guacamole?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created September 04, 2011 at 12:53 AM

I am a huge guacamole fan, and I want to make some some bacon and just sandwich it between to slices but I need a better recipe. I usually mash up avacodos, diced onions and tomatoes, a little cilantro, and squeeze in some lime or lemon. This just comes out a little bland to me and I wanted to see what my fellow hackers recommened to make a damn good guac.

sonofgrok.com is down right now. But I found what seems to be a copy of the recipe for you here: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s1/note/7bb5580f-62c0-4cda-8d5c-f2f1346eb7fb/sshrago/PaleoRecipes#b=d3870d76-aa2b-4c1f-88b0-b0b9f8b9e219&n=7bb5580f-62c0-4cda-8d5c-f2f1346eb7fb

I microplane ginger, too. Just peel and run over a few times. A sweet trick!

My recipe is a smashed avocado, chopped onion, garlic, jalapeño, and tomato, fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. For spices add sea salt, red pepper flakes, white paper and sometimes chive. Also if you have any leftover veggies left, try adding a bit of those. I used some leftover corn fresh off the cob and it was delicious in the guacamole.

More cilantro too! And make sure your avocadoes are almost overripe: somehow, overripe avocadoes taste nasty on their own but wonderful in guacamole

Heyyyyy - that's awesome! So happy that you liked it :) The bacon trick is pretty amazing, right? Thick cut, thin cut, duck, beef, piggy.. so good on all varieties. For the jalapeno use the handle of a spoon and you can scrape half the seeds out easily, will help with the heat. Also run it on a microplane for finer texture. So.. when are you going to make an omelet and fill with said guac and top with crumbled bacon with a side salad of arugula, lime juice, garlic, cumin, radish? and a little queso fresco if you're eating dairy? :)

Second the garlic and cumin! And sea salt! And sweet lime if you can find it. A dash of smoked paprika will go a long way, too. If you want the chile flavor w/out the heat, ditch the seeds and pith. Cumin is the key, IMO.

I'm going to third on the salt. Everything needs a little salt. It doesn't even need to be much, just enough to open the flavor. Also, garlic and cumin. Yes. I'm not big on spicy (or, I am, but my mouth isn't.) so I add flavor without spice. But if you like spicy, add a bit of jalapeno. Although, one time, I added some chipotle to my guac, and OMG sooooo good..

That is fantastic I never thought to mix meat into the guac, it's so often just a veggie type dip. Do you usually drain the beef and let it cool before mixing in the guac?

You have a point... That might help a little bit. If I remember correctly salt simply opens the taste buds to be able to experience more of a taste sensation? Definitly going into my recipe.

I'm fairly notorious for my love of guacamole using bacon as the vehicle to take the deliciousness from bowl to mouth.. so.. how I make it:

Avocado. Lime juice. Finely chopped scallion. Jalapeno finely chopped with seeds. Garlic ran over my microplane. Finely diced tomato that I de-seed. Salt. Pepper. Cilantro finely chopped. Smash. Thick cut applewood smoked bacon roasted until super crisp in the oven. Crack black pepper all over before putting in. Remove. Pat dry. Place guac in the middle of a plate. Surround with bacon. Dip. Slowly bring to mouth. Eat. Repeat.

Tastycakes!

Salt and pepper both, shallots, and making sure you get enough lime juice. I go 1/2 lime for each avocado.

A serrano pepper instead of a jalapeno adds a great flavor.. Not too spicy (1 pepper/3 avocados)

Better yet, guacamole is a great accompaniment to leftover meat or chicken dishes. When I have leftover chicken, I usually reheat it and then put the guacamole on top. It adds tremendous flavor and moistness.

I like to add fresh coconut flesh...

Coconut & miso guacamole

Mash 3 small or 2 large avocados by hand.

Dilute 1 tsp miso in same amount of water until makes a thin paste. Should be more on the watery side.

Process diluted miso w/juice of 1 lime, ¼ cup flesh from 1 young Thai coconut, ¼ diced onion, handful of cilantro, 1-2 cloves garlic, 1 tsp cumin powder, pinch of Himalayan rock salt.

Option: for a smoky flavor, add a pinch of dried chipotle pepper (the seeds vs. the actual whole peppers)

Option: Add 5-6 diced heirloom cherry tomatoes or 1 small heirloom tomato after processing for texture & added flavor.

I use a recipe similar to yours, but add some Chipotle chili in Adobo sauce. Adds a spicy, smoky flavor. Yum!
