Matt and I have been perfecting our guacamole recipe for years. We have it down to a science, and our secret ingredient is mixing in a huge dollop of Greek yogurt. You’ve probably seen me refer to this as “Yoga-mole” on the blog!
We made this recipe last week and wrote down our measurements so I could finally share the recipe with you. This one is easily halved or doubled, and you can tweak the proportions of everything to your taste. Some jalapeños and cilantro would be nice garnishes!
Start with avocados that are firm but not hard and a couple of limes. Halve the avocados and remove the pits.
Then scoop the flesh into a big bowl.
Top with the juice of two limes.
And then add a big scoop of Greek yogurt – ours was 1/3 a cup.
Here are some ideas for the seasonings. We tend to use one called “southwestern seasoning” that is a blend of chili powder and cumin with a little garlic powder, but you can also just add these on your own too. Add 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon of southwestern seasoning – or 1/8 teaspoon each of chili powder and cumin and a big pinch of garlic powder.
Mix well and serve with allthechips!
