In Search of Guac

I made guacamole last night and it didn't turn out to my satisfaction. I decided to share this piece of unfortunate news with Twitter and wow did I stir up a conversation.

I have more ideas for guacamole than I have brain cells now. First here is the recipe I generally follow.

  • 2-3 Avacados
  • garlic
  • tomato
  • onion
  • fresh lime juice
  • Salt (course, either Kosher or sea)

If it's available and I know everyone who I will be serving likes it, I will usually add cilantro.

Now apparently guacamole is incredibly diverse. Here are a few suggestions I got on Twitter and ones I found on-line. I had heard of some of these, but some were new to me.

  • A squeeze of orange
  • lemon juice
  • egg
  • chili peppers
  • cumin
  • hot pepper sauce
  • chunky salsa
  • green onion

I'm now craving guacamole so I may need a trip to the grocery store for some supplies. Any other suggestions for guacamole ingredients.
