As you all know by now I’m a Texas girl and I’ve been eating guacamole since I can remember. My mother grew up in El Paso ,Texas and every time we went to visit her family we would drive across the Mexican border to Juarez to have a very authentic Mexican meal.
Guacamole was usually part of that as well as salsa and chips, enchiladas, and tacos. My family loved Mexican food and my Mother knew what it was supposed to taste like before the whole TexMex craze began.
So guacamole is in my DNA.
Now you can buy it everywhere but truthfully it tastes so much better if you make it yourself. Since I am a real guacamole snob I bought an authentic mortar and pestle called a molcajete and tejolete
. It’s made out of volcanic rock and it’s used to grind the onions, cilantro, salt and lime and make it into a paste before you mix in the avocado.
Then you can serve in it as well. We made three different types of guacamole and homemade tortilla chips for you.
The first is basic and the other two have add ins. If you learn to make guacamole from scratch you will make a lot of friends !!
