To go with my South of the Border feast I also made Guacamole. Anytime I’m having Mexican food, I almost always have guacamole to go with those salty chips. Keep it simple when you make this dish. Nice ripe avocados, lime, cilantro and a few spices – that’s it.
As much as they charge for guacamole at restaurants you would think the ingredients are really expensive or that it is difficult to make. Nope. It only takes as long as it takes you to chop the ingredients and mix.
The next time you make a Mexican meal at home, don’t forget to make some guacamole!
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 lime, zested and juiced
- 1/4 of a small red onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 - 1/2 tomato cored and chopped
- kosher salt
Cut the avocados in half and scoop the flesh into a mixing bowl
add the lime juice and zest to prevent the avocados from oxidizing
add the rest of the ingredients - except the tomato
Stir to combine
Garnish with the tomato
