I was told that authentic guacamole is chunky and mixed with your hands not blended in a food processor. That’s exactly how we made our Ultimate Homemade Guacamole in my cooking class. And we learned the secret to keeping guacamole fresh and not turning brown!
1 small shallot, diced
1 Serrano chili, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped & divided
2 teaspoons salt
4 ripe avocados
2 tablespoons juice form 2 limes
Combine all ingredients (except a little chopped cilantro to garnish) in a bowl and mix with your hands until well combined. Garnish and serve immediately.
Unless you want to make this beforehand then the secret to keeping it fresh is: add the avocado pit back in the bowl, soak a paper towel in lime juice, cover bowl and refrigerate.
