Guacamole

6 Aug

Guacamole is one of those things that you either like or you don’t.  There really isn’t an in-between.  I didn’t always like guacamole…not because I didn’t like the taste or texture of it…but because I never tried it!  I’m not sure what changed, but one day I decided to give guacamole a try.  Since that day, I have never looked back!  I could eat this stuff everyday.  Whether as a snack or to go along with your meal, its delicious! 

Ingredients:
2 ripe avocados (pitted and skin removed)
1 jalapeno, diced
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 medium size tomato, diced
1 bunch of cilantro – I used about 1/2 cup and chopped up into tiny pieces
1 lime
1 tsp kosher salt

Directions:
Place avocado into large bowl or into a mortar and pestle.  If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can mash-up avocado using a spoon and fork.  I like my guacamole to be a little chunky, so I don’t mash it up all the way.  When it’s to your liking, add diced jalapeno, tomato, and red onion.  Mix well.  Next add in your  cilantro, salt, and juice from the lime.  I love cilantro, so I always add a bit extra, but not everyone likes cilantro.  So if you don’t like it, you could omit it.  At this point, I would give your guacamole a try.  If it needs more of something, add it in now!

Finally, grab your favorite brand of tortilla chips and enjoy your guacamole~
