For years, I have read magazine interviews in which actress Eva Longoria* mentions that she makes the world’s best guacamole. This month she was kind enough to share her recipe with Self magazine—just in time for the Super Bowl**! Eva Longoria’s guacamole will go very well with chili.
Try it and you’ll see: it really is the best ever! I live in the Southwest, so I know a thing or two about guacamole. Every year, students make guacamole and salsa for the class for their “How-to” presentations.
Best Guacamole EVER!
6 ripe avocados, diced
4 medium tomatoes, diced
1 large white onion, finely chopped
1 medium Serrano pepper, finely chopped
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ cup fresh lemon juice
2 tsp kosher salt
Mix all ingredients. That’s it!

*of Desperate Housewives fame. I have seen some of Eva’s movies. I really liked Over Her Dead Body—Eva is very funny as a bride who dies on her wedding day—and haunts her fiancé when he falls for a psychic.
**Funny story: one year I asked a routine question while teaching third grade math and a boy raised his hand. Instead of answering, he blurted out, “Okay, who do you like: the Saints or the Colts? It took me forever to calm the class down. I asked the boy to write a paragraph about why you don’t poll the class about football during math.
