Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion about 1/4 of a medium sized onion
  • 1/4 chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 lime
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 jalapeño deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 avocados

Instructions

  • Combine the cilantro, red onion, parsley, juice from 1/2 of the lime, garlic, jalapeño, red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into a small bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add the avocado to a larger bowl and mash into a chunky consistency. Add about 2/3 of the chimichurri mix into the avocado along with the juice from the remaining half of lime and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Stir to combine well.
  • Add the olive oil to the remaining 1/3 of the chimichurri mix and stir to combine. Pour the chimichurri sauce over top of the guacamole and serve.

Notes

  • Always mash your avocado prior to adding the ingredients. You want ingredients like tomatoes
    to keep its shape and not get all mushed up.
  • If you want a quick guacamole and don’t want to follow this recipe (you crazy girl) a simple way
    to make last-minute guacamole is to mash your avocado with some salt and fold in your
    favorite salsa.
  • Hold on to your avocado pit to store any unused guacamole. Simply place the pit along with the guacamole into an airtight container and store refrigerated.
  • Add unexpected flavors to your guacamole for added flavor. Things like pepitas, pinenuts and bacon are delicious!
