The one-minute video will show you the ingredients and how much of each we use. You can experiment by adding a little more or little less olive oil, cilantro, or lime juice. For the Serrano peppers, we scale back the heat by getting rid of all the seeds and most of the veins in the chili peppers. This is an old Guacamole recipe that my father used to make and he loved the full Serrano pepper. Since I like drinking wine with Guacamole, I don’t want it to be too spicy hot. I want to savor both the wine and the Guacamole.
I would venture to guess that the preferred beverage of choice with Guacamole and tortilla chips is beer. I however like to drink a nice crisp and refreshing white wine, something like a Riesling that has just a touch of sweetness. Sparkling wine is also good as in Domain Chandon Rosé or the Domaine Allimant-Laugner Rosé that I also recommend for Valentine’s Day.
I also love a light red wine like a spicy Garnacha from Spain. There is something magical that happens in my mouth when the red wine and the flavors of Cilantro meet. I think it is a match made in heaven. You might try the Tres Picos Garnacha that Costco carries. It’s perfect for the Guacamole. Enjoy and Go Niners!!!!
