Cook: MM Good Gracious Guac!


Michael Mina is a genius and one of my favorite chefs! He takes simple dishes to an entirely new level with small details. On his site, CookTasteEat, Mina and Michelle Branch create a super simple guacamole, and he shares a trick that will change your life! 

Here is MY quick and easy Guac recipe!

3 ripe avocados

1/3 medium onion (finely chopped)

Juice from 1/2 lime

2 Tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)

1/8 tsp garlic powder

Salt & Pepper to taste

Optional:  2 tsp jalapeno (chopped), 1/2 tomato (diced)

Using Michael Mina’s avocado cutting trick, dice avocado. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. You can mash the avocado or use a molcajete (as shown above) if you prefer a creamier guacamole. 

Please note: I did not make the guacamole in the molcajete. I only used it for serving as I prefer a chunkier style.
