How do I say this without sounding boastful? Maybe by first admitting that there are many things I completely fail at, but one thing’s for sure, my guac ROCKS! It’s true. I’m continually asked to make it for virtually every party we’re invited to and it’s rare that the bowl isn’t nearly licked clean.
Why is it so good? What’s my secret? Well … I’m finally going to spill the beans, and admit that there’s actually THREE secrets to making the tastiest and easiest guac ever!
1) Homemade Pico de Gallo is the ultimate guaranteed way to make some killer guac! It isn’t rocket science to make, but taking a few minutes to make fresh pico de gallo with vine-ripe tomatoes is key to making the fastest, tasty guac in town!
2) Perfectly Ripe Avocados are also essential for making the best guacamole ever! But how many times have you squeezed an avocado in the market and thought it was perfect, only to discover big-ole brown spots once you cut it open. Boo! That’s such a bummer! Good news – there’s actually a very easy way to tell if an avocado is perfect, here’s how.
3) A Pinch of Oregano! It’s amazing how something as simple as the addition of a fragrant herb can create such a stunning undertone of flavor to a recipe – such is the case with oregano. Just a big pinch or two of oregano rubbed between your fingers to release its oils will add a beautiful savory flavor to your guac that will make it a memorable standout!
Putting it all together!
With homemade Pico de Gallo and perfectly ripe avocados in hand, within just a matter of minutes you and your family (if you opt to share) will be diving into some super tasty guac! Enjoy!
