Let me start by saying that I despised guacamole for years and just recently I went to Rocco's Tacos in Naples, Florida and someone in my party happened to order a side of guacamole for the table.
The only reason why I ended up trying Rocco's Tacos guacamole is because it was freshly made right in front of me and I didn't want to be rude and not have at least a little bite.
Well, that bite turned into many other bites and just liked that I changed my mind about guacamole.
Another fact you might find interesting is that my husband is Mexican and had never tried guacamole until I made this very recipe that I will be sharing with you today. Per his words "guacamole just looked too green and had a weird texture for his taste" but after trying it, he also changed his mind about the delicious treat.
Now, the number one secret when making guacamole is using fresh ingredients and consuming it fresh. I am emphasizing the word fresh because this is truly the key to a tasteful guacamole.
This recipe is easy and simple enough to replicate so don't worry about making it in advance to save time. Avocados oxidize very quickly and will start to blacken when in contact with oxygen and the same will happen to your guacamole, so fresh is best.
