How To Make Homemade Guacamole

 

 

A famous quote by Julia Child says, “A party without cake is just a meeting.” But in our house, we say, “A party without guacamole is simply not a party.”

Our family loves guacamole. My little one has always love avocados since I introduced him to it. Now that he's a bit more grown up, he enjoys his avocados in the form of a guacamole dip. But as moms out there know, one of the biggest dilemmas when cooking is that we sometimes have to create a baby version and an adult version of the same recipe. The guacamole that that my toddler loves is quite different from the one my husband prefers.

The guacamole that we make at home is from the guacamole recipe my husband learned while working at a Mexican restaurant in the United States. Which is a mix of Pico de Gallo (chopped onions, tomatoes, and peppers, seasoned with cilantro) and an avocado purée, made separately and then combined, making it easy to customize the recipe for different people.

Case in point, my toddler prefers eating the avocado purée on its own, while my husband needs to add in a bit more Pico de Gallo in his version of this guacamole recipe. And me? I’m happy either way, and eat a bit of everybody else’s.
