I remember growing up hating everything about an avocado–taste, smell, texture and everything in between. Recently, I’ve developed a love for guacamole. I think it has to do with the lime that brings out the flavor of the avocado.
I like to eat this guacamole with almost anything. Sometimes I’ll add it to my cheese quesadilla, other times I just grab a bag of tortilla chips. Guacamole is not only healthy, but also delicious! Try this recipe out for yourself and hopefully you will be able to share my love for it too.
- 3 medium or 2 large Haas Avocados
- 1 lime
- 1 Roma tomato
- 1/2 medium onion
- 1/8 tsp cumin
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- salt, to taste
- 1 small jalapeño (finely seeded and minced)
Cut the avocado along the seed and pull each half apart. Seed the avocado by taping the seed with a sharp knife and twisting gently. Use a spoon to remove the flesh from the skin of the avocado into a medium bowl. Juice the lime and add it into the bowl. Depending on how chunky you like your guacamole, you can either mash it up briefly with a fork or throw the avocados into a food processor.
Cut the Roma tomato along the length side so you get pedals of flesh. Discard the seeds. Dice the flesh of the tomatoes and add it to the avocados. Finely dice the onions and add it into the avocados. Add all of the spices and jalapeños and stir throughly. Add at least 1 tsp of salt and start tasting your guacamole and season as needed.
Please note that guacamole is extremely versatile; try adding bacon bits or other peppers to suit your taste!
