Guacamole. People seem to love it or hate it. Me? I have mixed emotions about it. I often get it served up with quesadillas at different Mexican restaurants and I always end up scraping it off because I really don’t feel like eating 3 day’s worth of my salt intake in one little scoop. It’s so salty and that just isn’t very heart healthy, plus to me, it doesn’t even taste good. I’ve had friends’ guacamole recipes that I have liked much better than the sodium-laden restaurant varieties, but I’m here to tell you, if you’re looking for the best guacamole recipe on the internet that’s low in sodium too, stop searching because you just found it. Guacamole is perfect on your game day table, at picnics and gatherings, and it’s great as a sandwich spread as an alternative to *SHUDDER* mayonnaise. With just a few simple ingredients, you can put this deliciousness together in no time.
- 2 large avocados
- 1 vine ripened tomato
- ¼ cup onion
- 1 lemon or lime (your choice depending on your flavor preference)
- 10 shakes of your favorite hot sauce (more or less depending on how hot you like it)
- ½ capful malt or apple cider vinegar
- Cut avocados in half, remove pit, scoop meat out, and place in a mixer.
- Quarter tomato and chop onion, then put them in your mixer.
- Cut your lemon and squeeze the juice over the avocado mix in the mixer.
- Pour in your desired amount of hot sauce and the vinegar.
- Mix to desired consistency. We like ours a little lumpy, but not too much.
- Store unused portion in a covered container in the refrigerator with a slice of onion on top of it to keep it from turning brown.
