Still reporting from Mexico, and this time, I'll be addressing a classic- guacamole. High-priced in US restaurants, guacamole is something a lot of people never make, and they don't realize how easy the combination is, especially if you can find cheap and fresh produce like down here- go check out your farmer's markets and look for those fresh, in season ingredients!
|Your ingredients: avocado, tomato, onion, limon, cilantro, and salt. Not pictured: garlic and jalapeno.|
Guacamole (for 2-4)
-1 avocado, mashed
-1 roma tomato or equivalent part of larger tomato, juice squeezed out and diced
-1 very small onion, or equivalent part of larger onion, diced
-2 limons, squeezed
-1 clove garlic, minced fine
-a whole bunch of cilantro (as much as you want!), chopped
-salt, to taste
-optional: jalapeno, to taste (I don't mind it without the spiciness, but it can definitely add, especially if you're a spice lover like my sister, who wouldn't make guac without the jalapeno!)
Mix up/mash up all ingredients, then serve with chips or any crunchy dipping article, or serve with tacos, fajitas, you name it! Get creative!
|Here's the finished guacamole- bright and fresh and delicious- but most importantly, easy and healthy!!|
