Guacamole

photo (27)Let’s take a moment and celebrate the avocado. I don’t mean sit and stare at your computer with a half-smile sort of celebration. No, I’m talking crazed sport fan celebration – let’s find a car to turn over! Better yet, let’s bottle up every 80’s movie party montage and toss it all over the place like a 90’s rap video. I’m not talking about pouring one out for the homies; I’m preaching the avo-gospel.

Chuuch!

Show me someone who doesn’t like avocados and I’ll show you a possible villain of the Power Rangers. You know that person who’s always trying to break up a relationship in a Lifetime Original movie? That person hates avocados.

Let’s put an end to this needless hatred. Cilantro is for lovers, people! Me, I love avocados and I want everyone to know. I want my love to spring forth like Reality TV show fights and silly string!

Okay. So.

Let us show our love with controlled destruction; let’s smash an avocado, mix it up with other deliciousness and call it a day. Avocado Hulk Smash! Let’s get our guacamole on!

Okay. So.

Here are some things to remember when game-planning your guacamole:

– Always use ripe avocados (duh!)
– Smash that avocado but leave it chunky!
– When putting all your ingredients together don’t over-mix!
– Guacamole is just as much about the other ingredients as it is about the avocado itself. You definitely need acid (lemon), fresh herbs (uhhh cilantro!), heat (even if it’s a little) and salt! Have a team – don’t send the avocado in alone!

Guacamole

3 Ripe Hass Avocados
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup white onion (finely diced – rinsed in cold water)
2 TBS – 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro (depending on your taste)
2 Roma Tomatoes – seeded and diced and sprinkled with salt
1 – 2 jalapenos – seeded and finely diced.
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1. Chop & organize all your ingredients (except the avocado) and set aside; salt diced tomatoes.
2. Cut avocados in half; remove pit and scoop into a large bowl.
3. Using the back of a fork mash avocados to a nice (chunky) consistency.
4. Add remaining ingredient and gently mix together – Salt to taste!
5. There! You’ve made guacamole. Now do a dance!

End Note: I like to make Guacamole right before I eat it. Sometimes that’s not always possible. Here’s an effective way to keep your guacamole from turning brown while you store it for later noshing.
