Guacamole


This is an AWSOME condiment to put on or in any mexican dish. I got hooked by the free sample from the central square Bread and Circus, and Tasha then showed me how to make it.  It should be noted that T makes this much better than I do.

serves 8:

  • 2 Ripe Haas Avocados
  • 1/4 small onion diced
  • 1/4 small tomato diced
  • 4-5 sprigs of chopped cilantro (leaves and thin stems only)
  • juice of 1/4 of a lemon
  • sea salt to taste
  • coarse fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 of a clove of fresh garlic
  • Slice avocados in 1/2 remove pits. and scoop flesh into bowl. Juice lemon over avocados, this should help keep the Guac green. Add diced onion, tomato, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher. Chill for 30+ minutes, season to taste.

    Excellent on burritos, fajitas, tacos, or nachos. The recipe scales resaonably well, just watch out for the lemon, it can be strong.
