Guacamole is a staple of Mexican sauces. It may be thick or creamy, mild or spicy, depending on its region of origin and how it is to be used.
In Mexico, a molcajete, a deep three-footed stone mortar is used to mash the ingredients.
- Remove the pits from the avocados and set aside;
- mash the avocado flesh with a wooden spoon;
- grill the tomatoes until cooked (do not overcook);
- crush the tomatoes in a mortar with the chilies, onion and garlic;
- add a little olive oil and salt and pepper to taste; flavor with a few cilantro leaves;
- place the avocado pits into the guacamole to slow discoloration (avocados darken when exposed to air).
