green deliciousness

Avocados. Love them. Sliced, chopped, cubed, or pureed. I eat them on toast, with eggs, black beans, pizza, quesadillas, soup, sandwiches…but when I’m in the mood for guacamole, I smash ’em up. I had a few ripe avocados and thought, why not? So while Finn napped, that’s what I did. Guacamole can be simple or complex – I went for simple.

2.scooped avocado

Cut avocados in half, remove pit/seed, scoop out deliciousness – I used an ice cream scooper (I usually just use a spoon) and realized, this is, the perfect tool for this job….

3.smashed avocado

Smash avocado (with a masher) with the fresh lime juice, and then add a bit of salt (to taste), cumin, chopped cilantro and and that’s it.

We enjoyed dipping organic blue corn chips into it, then into chipotle salsa…enjoy it as you wish…

Guacamole

3-4 ripe avocados

1 teaspoon cumin (or more, if you like)

a good pinch (or two) of coarse salt

freshly squeezed lime juice from 2-3 limes

1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro

Variations to add…

a bit of chipotle powder

dice fresh tomato

a dollop of sour cream

finely minced red onion

The great thing about guacamole is it can be as simple or complex as you like. Its only drawback is that it needs to be eaten fairly quickly – it doesn’t keep too long – but, is that really a drawback? (:

And below you’ll find a printable version – yeah, I figured it out (well, mostly…)!

How do you like your guacamole?
