One of Platinum’s own, Cuau Sandoval, decided to share his quick and easy, Mexican guacamole recipe with us. In his words, it’s “the easiest and tastiest recipe [he] know[s], and it will make enough for 6-8 of your friends”:
- 4 avocados
- ½ yellow onion
- ½ a cup of fresh cilantro
- 7 oz of green/tomatillo salsa
Finely chop the onion and cilantro. With a spoon, scoop out the avocados and place in a bowl. Add all the ingredients together and stir. Grab a tortilla chip and taste, add salt if necessary!
Cuau’s Tip: For tasty tortilla chips that won’t break under the guacamole’s weight, try El Milagro. You can make your own green/tomatillo salsa recipe to tailor to your tastes, or you can purchase a premade version at the local grocery store.
