In honor of National Guacamole Day on September 16, we’ve teamed up with Orange Beach Concierge’s Chef David Pan to share a recipe that will guac your world.

Check it out then tag us in your photos of the recreations using #ALWharf and #TheWharfOBA.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe Hass avocados (peeled, pitted and halved)
  • 1 juice of lime (hold back a tablespoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced and seeded
  • 1/2 jalapeño, diced or minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped, fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove minced garlic

Method

  1. Place the avocado pulp and lime juice in a large mixing bowl and toss to combine.
  2. Add the salt and mash using your hands (gloved) or masher, leaving some larger chunks for texture.
  3. Add the onion, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeño, and garlic, and stir to combine.
  4. Lay plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole and allow to sit at room temperature for 2 hours before serving.
  5. Add salt + pepper to taste and sometimes a bit for lime (acid) for full flavor.
  6. Enjoy with your favorite chips or vegetables for dipping.
