Everyone has their own take on guacamole. Some recipes call for sour cream, other don’t. Some guacamole recipes call for garlic salt, while others insist on fresh garlic. Some call for more heat than a simple red onion can provide…jalapeños, poblanos, serrano, etc. And then there’s the debate on lemon juice versus lime juice in guacamole. Oh, the decisions.
It’s my opinion that you can’t go wrong with guacamole. As long as you start with the basics (avocado, tomato, onion, garlic), you can do whatever your tastebuds desire.
I’ve seen guacamole recipes that call for such things as orange juice, cumin, tomatillo sauce, Dijon mustard, mangoes, peaches, black beans, oriental sesame seed oil, ginger, and the list goes on.
