How to Make the Perfect Guacamole

How to Make the Perfect Guacamole

By Casa Tabachin. Categorized under About Casa Tabachin, Culture, Vallarta, What to do

Awaken the spirit of Mexico on your palate with the perfect guacamole.

The secret to making the perfect guacamole will vary depending on who you are speaking to. Some say it’s about the lime, some say it’s the salt. We’d like to share a special recipe so that when you’ve got the blues after arriving home from a stay at Casa Tabachin, you can awaken the spirit of Mexico within you while enjoying the perfect guacamole.

First, it’s important to know how to pick the perfect avocados. Picking the perfect avocado isn’t all that difficult. All that’s really necessary is a gentle squeeze; if the avocado yields to gentle pressure, but isn’t extremely soft or mushy then it’s perfectly ripe. If it’s hard, then it’s still too green. Another secret is to examine the avocado’s stem. Peel back the little cap at the top and take a look at the color, if it’s green it’s good to buy. If the area underneath is brown or black, the avocado is most likely overripe.

Once you’ve got your perfect avocados you can go ahead with making the perfect guacamole:

  • 3 Ripe Avocados
  • ¼ Cup of Diced Red Onion
  • ¼ Cup of Diced Cilantro
  • ¼ Cup of Diced Tomato
  • 2 Tbsp. Lime Juice
  • ½ Tbsp. of Sea Salt

If you like a little spice choose 1 or more of these fresh chilies:

  • 1 Serrano Pepper (finely diced and seeded)
  • 1 Jalapeño Pepper (finely diced and seeded)
  • 1 or 2 Chipotle Peppers (our personal favorite)

Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed and scoop into a bowl. Mash with a fork until you’ve reached desired consistency, then mix in the rest of your ingredients. Season with more lime, salt, pepper or spice to taste, and voila! You’ve got the perfect guacamole.  

During your stay at Casa Tabachin, you won’t have to worry about making your own Guacamole (unless you want to). Nestled in the Gringo Gulch neighborhood with stunning ocean views, this 8 bedroom luxury villa rental comes complete with a procured art collection and a full staff including a private chef and concierge. Chef Jose Luis will be happy to make you all the guacamole your heart desires.
