Lig’s Guacamole, Dominican-Style

guacamole recipe Ligia

My family is Dominican, so guacamole is something I discovered later in life. But I will never forget the first time I saw it prepared tableside in a giant molcajete the size of a salad bowl. Our family of four must have devoured 8 avocados that night, and it has been a staple snack in our home ever since.

Getting everything ready ahead of time is the key to putting this together easily—chop/mince everything first before cutting the avocado so that it doesn’t brown.

Although guacamole is traditionally served with corn tortilla chips, our family loves the sweet/salty combo of guac with sweet potato chips or plantain chips, making our family’s guacamole a Dominican version after all.
