In search of a better guacamole

mocro | Sep 27, 2009 12:54 PM

I just made some guacamole and came to the horrible realization that my guac is "meh" at best. I've never really followed a recipe - just avocado, chopped tomato + onion, lime juice, salt, cilantro.

I had an awesome guac at the Encore in Vegas a couple of weeks ago. It was delicious and smoother than the chunky variety I make and and really, really green. Maybe too much so - who knows what made it so green, but it was delicious. My guacamole is pale green as are my avocados.

I'm starting to think the fault is w/my avocados - not very flavorful. We're blessed w/an abundance of avocados in SoCal and I buy mine (Haas I believe - pebble-skinned) at the grocery store or Costco. Could someone please educate me as to whether there's an avocado with more flavor? Thanks so much.
