This was not planned, but sometimes the best things result from impromptu inspiration. I’ve decided to shoot a non-cooking cooking tutorial just to get my feet wet for food features. I’m not really ready to worry about a live stove and a live camera being ON at the same time LOL. Here in my new “How To Make Guacamole” video I share how I make my version of this Shrek-y sort of dip. It’s a recipe that I personally expanded and changed using YouTuber Dan Phillippi’s version of guacamole as a base formula (but the video was on his wife Nikki’s channel). Thanks Nikki and Dan for the inspiration and motivation from two years ago! It’s totally not the same recipe and method anymore after I changed it up.
JULIA’S GUAC The Recipe and the Video Feature (Click here to watch):
2-3 (3 if they’re small) avocados
1 red onion finely chopped/minced
50g cilantro/coriander, “wansoy” stems and leaves coarsely or finely chopped
2 medium green tomatoes chopped
2 finger chilis “siling panigang” seeds removed and chopped
1 small wild chili “siling labuyo” chopped
1 or 2 tbsp. (try 1 first) Calamansi juice/lime juice
1 tsp. ground cumin spice
1 tsp. sea salt to season (add as needed)
CHIPS: I used Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortillas
Blend everything in a mortar and pestle for chunky texture or in a food processor for smoother consistency.
