Guacamole is simple, wholesome, refreshing and delicious. Everyone has their own unique recipe. And so here’s mine.
serves 2 / time: 10 min.
1 ripe avocado
1 medium tomato chopped small
1 Tbs lemon juice (about 1/4 lemon)
1 tspn olive oil
1/4 tspn black pepper ground
1/4 tspn salt
1/4 tspn cumin ground
1/4 tspn paprika for garnish
1 Tbs cilantro / coriander chopped
- Slice the avocado in half, remove and save the pit.*
- Scoop out the good green stuff with a spoon.
- In a medium-sized bowl mix and mash all ingredients (except paprika) with a fork. Make it as chunky or creamy as you choose.
- Garnish and serve!
Serve with chips, crackers, fresh bread. Or use for sandwiches or Latin American / Tex / Mex dishes. Store covered in the fridge *with the pit to retain freshness and prevent browning.
Variations: Add 1 finely diced clove garlic, 1/4 red onion diced (soak in cold water for 10-15 minutes to reduce taste but retain crunch), fresh chopped scallions, and / or 1/2 bell pepper (any color) chopped. Please don’t ever defile your tasty guac with mayonnaise! I think it’s illegal in most states. Even if you’re European, that’s just not cool.
