Have you ever been to a party and wondered who made that awesome dip that guests couldn’t get enough of? I have for sure, and there is one dip that truly is a hit every time I entertain. And it’s my sister-in-law Kim’s guacamole! I like to call this one, Aunt Kimi’s Guac, aka The Perfect Guacamole!
I can tell you one thing—when my sister-in-law Kim visits each summer, she comes with her apron in tow and absolutely loves to spend time with us in the kitchen. But since it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to visit with the family anytime soon, we need to recreate her specialty guac on our own!
Over the last month or two, my kitchen has definitely become a place where lots of memories are being made. Whether it be the kids doing their schoolwork, or Bobby and I cooking up a new meal, the heart of our everyday lives is centered around our kitchen. So recreating Kim’s guacamole dip is a no brainer! It is so good it’s gone within minutes, so I hope you are ready to turn up the flavor of your chips or top some of your favorite tacos because I have the skinny on her winning recipe for the perfect guacamole!
Ingredients For The Perfect Guacamole
- 4 avocados
- 1 tsp of pink salt
- 2 tbsp of fresh lime juice
- 4 tbsp pinched red onion
- 2-3 serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, minced
- 4 tbsp of cilantro finely chopped
- A dash of freshly grated black pepper
- 1 ripe tomatoes seeds and pulp removed, chopped (I like to use Roma tomatoes)
Directions For the Perfect Guacamole
- First, make sure your avocados are ripe and not rotten. Then scoop out the avocado into a bowl.
- Then mash it with a fork, leaving it a bit chunky for a better texture.
- After it’s mashed, add salt, lime juice and the rest of the ingredients. Be sure to adjust spices to your taste. We like everything hot so we pack in the serrano chiles.
- Once it’s all mixed, serve it up fresh with your favorite chips!
Add a Personal Spin On Your Guac
For Bobby and me, I’ll add a little dab of Adriana Wright’s Chihuahua Hot Sauce. It’s my go-to to kick things up. But you can make this guacamole your own! If you can’t handle the heat skip the peppers. Need an extra kick? Add some jalapenos! You can add some fresh corn, extra tomatoes—whatever it is that your family loves! But there’s nothing like the original!
