Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today is a huge day in Mexico and many other cultures, especially in the United States, love to celebrate the holiday. To celebrate, I want you to make (or eat) the perfect guacamole, so chef Antonio Brodziak, from Cabo Flats, a restaurant with multiple locations in Florida, gives you a few tips. Follow these essentials of making guacamole and it will turn out perfect!
-Buy the right avocado: Everybody knows that guacamole is consisted of avocado, but people often use just regular avocados, losing flavor in the process. Ripe Hass avocados bring much more flavor and consistency to the guacamole.
-Don’t forget the cilantro: What is also known as Coriander, cilantro taste is a mix between parsley and citrus. It brings a good mix to the flavors of a next level guacamole.
-When it comes to onions, think red: Unlike regular yellow or white onions, red onions are much sweeter. Having that sweet taste adds more contrast to the guacamole mix. Plus, it has less sulfur content, so no watery eyes while cooking!
-Squeeze a lime: Having that bit of fresh squeezed lime will add another touch of citrus taste without making it lose other flavors.
-Top it with tomatoes: Be sure to get fresh orange tomatoes, so you can get the full and less acidic taste from them.
Have a great Cinco de Mayo and celebrate smart!
