Top Guacamole Recipes on the Internet Have Been Tested, Ranked, and Improved For Cinco De Mayo ...

When I was younger, I remembered a moment when I fell in love with guacamole. I had, like a lot of kids, a simple aversion to green foods. And especially creamy green foods. I think kids see guacamole back then and imagine creamed spinach or something. My go-to Mexican restaurant order back then was the flautas, and I always ordered them without the guac, which is now pure lunacy.

When I was 19, my college friend invited me to go to the beach with his family. After a day of skiing, we sat down with a foldout table, where I saw his mom cut open fresh, juicy avocados, chop them with a spoon, and season them with salt and garlic salt. It was the whole recipe, and I absolutely devoured it like hyenas pulling at a carcass, as well as crappy tomatoes. I can''t imagine having people over for Mexican food or

If you have an abundance of nicely ripe avocados that you''ll be eating after mash them, you should still say that a basic avocados-salt-garlic salt recipe is beneficial (downsides are that it will not keep at all, and without fillers, youe will need a lot of avocados). In particular, the thin, green avocado salsa isn''t guac, but it''s quite easy, inexpensive, and makes a perfect taco drizzler.

The most common guacamole add-ons are garlic, tomato, onion, and cilantro, while the latter is at least as much as to prevent oxidization (which makes guac a dull green-grey when you leave it too long) as for flavor. There are several approaches to doing things, according to the internet.

I thought we might sample some of the internet''s favorite guacamole recipes, judge them against each other, and maybe synthesize what we learned for our own best-of-all-worlds recipe. Stay tuned for Vinces Galaxy Brain Guac Recipe at the bottom.

The five most popular recipes from Downshiftology (Lisa Bryan), WellPlated (Erin Clarke), Delish (Lena Abraham), AllRecipes (name not given) and FoodNetwork (Alton Brown were among those who went searching for the best ever guac recipe.

I wanted to make the avocados in a reasonable timeframe, then wrapped them in a paper bag with a banana overnight to give them riperability advantages. I then used the avocados to make the most common ingredients first.

One quick note on chopping tomatoes here, which can be a pain in the ass. Most guac recipes (and all these that required tomatoes) suggest Roma tomatoes, which makes sense, considering you need tomatoes that are decently firm and not too watery for guac, and Romas tend to be firmest, least watery tomato varieties. Youe also need to leave out all the seeds and soft inner pulp, which Romas do not have enough of. That can be a pain in the ass.
