There’s guacamole, and there’s GUACAMOLE! This recipe from Milk Street magazine which is on stands now and available in our store is the real deal – clean, simple and bold. Hold the lime and garlic. Trust us, you won’t miss it. The secret is in choosing just the right avocados – soft, but slightly firm – mixed with a few basic ingredients. 



4 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro

1-2 Serrano chilies, stemmed and finely chopped

2 Tablespoons finely chopped white onion

1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt

3 Ripe avocados, halved and pitted

1 Pint (1O ounces) Grape tomatoes, finely chopped

Tortilla chips, to serve


In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the cilantro, the chilies, onion and ½ teaspoon salt. Mash with the bottom of a dry measuring cup until a rough paste forms, about 1 minute.

Scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl and coarsely mash with a potato masher or fork. Stir in half of the tomatoes until combined. Taste and season with salt.

Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the remaining cilantro and tomato.
