Purely Simple Guacamole

5 mins (prep 5)
6 ingredients
4 servings
In my opinion the fresh and simple is best when considering a guacamole recipe. I know lots of recipes add lots of peppers and spices to doctor the flavor. But I like the flavors of the vegetables to highlight my guacamole. I found this recipe in the September issue of Saveur Magazine. It originally comes from Rosa Mexicano Restaurant in New York City, where the guacamole is prepared fresh at your table side using a traditional molcajete (a mortar made of volcanic rock). In preparing this recipe, if you do not have a molcajete, you can use a mortar and pestle, or a bowl and the back tines of a fork to combine ingredients, which will work just as well. I love this recipe and it has become my favorite. I hope you will enjoy it, too!
