Anytime Rick Bayless makes his way to town for an event, I do whatever I can to make it. I love listening to his expertise and always pick up tidbits of information about cooking when I see him. He recently hosted a fun event in Trinity Groves with Negra Modelo. It was a fun night full of delicious beer and food paired to Negra Modelo’s smooth taste. With an endless amount of food prepared by Chef Bayless and beer, how could the night get any better?Chef Rick Bayless made his amazing guacamole recipe that is one of my favorites! Guacamole is something that I make often at my house for many reasons. It’s easy, filling, full of flavor and everybody loves it! It doesn’t require tons of work and in my opinion, it’s a really hard recipe to mess up.
After a few Negra Modelo beers and fun in the kitchen, I wanted to share my ever so delicious recipe for Guacamole. It’s a recipe that you’ll want to bookmark for later!
This recipe is perfect for 2-3 people depending how hungry your guests are (or how delicious it turns out). Grab 2 avocados and slice them down the middle. Pull out the seed and trash. Scoop out all of the avocado and place in a mixing bowl. Chop approximately a 4 teaspoons of red onion, a handful of cilantro and 1 jalapeno. Throw into the mixing bowl with the avocado. Mix everything together gently. I prefer my guacamole chunky so if you’re like me, mix gently. Chop up a small tomato and mix in. Add a dash of salt and the squeeze of a lime. The fun part is when you get to taste test the guacamole. The more you make it, the easier it becomes. I know I like mine a little on the saltier side so I add extra salt. Remember that you can always add salt but you can never take it away so it’s much easier to add more later than ruining your whole bowl of guac. To add some extra flair (and awesomeness), I add bacon sprinkles as a finishing touch.
