Holy Guacamole: Part Dos
As I write this, my husband and 3 of his buddies are in our living room picking their players for their fantasy football teams. I know nothing about football players, or how the fantasy league system works, so they might as well be speaking a foreign language. It’s pretty comical to listen to. Of course, all that thinking and strategizeing works up an appetite, so like any good hostess, I had a few snacks out. I picked up some yummy cupcakes at the store (I was running a little low on time today) and then I decided that this would be a good excuse to try out the guacamole recipe that I got from George the activities director at the Cabo Hilton at the cooking class I snuck in right before the deadline of my birthday. And then I remembered that I had promised you good folks that I’d pass that recipe along. And while sometimes it takes me a while, I always try to make good on my promises. So here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as the boys snacking in my living room are!
*oh. side note. as always, I made a few tweaks to the recipe. And I love it. I’ll give it to you as I made it.
*2 roma tomatoes, diced
*1/4th of a white onion
*1/4 bunch of cilantro, diced
*1/2 cucumber, diced (optional)
*2 teaspoons lime juice
*1 teaspoon lemon juice
dash of kosher salt
1. cut avocado into little cubes and put in a medium size mixing bowl. cutting it into cubes first makes it easier to mash up. mash with a whisk.
2. dice the roma tomatos and mix into mashed avocado.
3. dice the 1/4th onion and mix into avocado/tomato mixture.
4. dice the 1/4th bunch cilantro and mix in with avocado/tomato/onion.
5. dice the 1/2 cucumber and mix in with avocado/tomato/onion/cilantro.
6. mix in lime and lemon juices.
7. mix in a dash of kosher salt.
8. serve with chips, on a burger, etc.
mmm. i’m going to go see if the boys will let me have any more of theirs. i only got a tiny bowl for myself.
