Moves to Florida, makes guacamole. Sounds pretty basic, huh? Obviously we try our best to be anything BUT basic around here, nothing a beautiful Florida peach and Tajin seasoning can’t fix.
SHOPPING LIST: 3 avocados, 1 tomato, 1 peach, 1 red onion, 1 jalapeño pepper, 1 lime, salt, pepper, tajin seasoning
Most important thing when making guacamole is making sure your guacamoles are perfectly soft! The second most important thing is prepping your lime first, so that your avocado can be placed directly into the citrus to prevent it from browning. We want a BRIGHT green guacamole!
Using a microplane, zest the entire lime into a small bowl. Then squeeze the entire lime over the zest. Next up, slice your SOFT avocados in half, remove the core, and squeeze the avocados directly over the lime. (If you cannot squeeze your avocados out of the shell they DEFINITELY are not soft enough for guacamole). Use a fork to smash the avocado into the lime juice.
Now for the chopping, slice your entire peach around the pit, give the slices a rough chop and add the peaches to the mashed avocado. Next, remove the core of your tomato and give your tomato a rough chop as well. I like the pieces of tomato and peaches to be a nice, larger chop. However, for the jalapeño and 1/4 of your red onion, you need to DICE these components, so a very fine chop for the onion and jalapeño. I like to use the entire jalapeño because I prefer my guacamole super spicy but feel free to scale down here based on your preference. Finally, a generous pinch of salt and pepper and 1/2 tsp. of the tajin seasoning and then use that fork again to really mix up all of your ingredients. After plating your guacamole, finish with a final sprinkle of tajin on top!
