Simple Guacamole Recipe
Being stuck in the kitchen with your loved ones really can be (it is, for my family) a great way to bond! While I was slicing and chopping, Valerie assembled the bits and shreds I had prepared. She whipped up pulled pork and fried calamari from scratch, pan-fried the chorizo and made sambal belacan mayo for our taco dinner.
Valerie, “Where’s the tomato salsa and guac?”
I said, “What?”
Val grinned, “Guacamole, grandma!”
Side-tracking, my number two grandson is on his way and the stork should deliver him some time in February 2017! Valentine’s Day, perhaps?
Back on track, we had a delicious dinner and everyone agreed that the Guac was awesome! So here’s the recipe I jotted down while Valerie, as usual, conjures her fare without measuring.
Simple Guacamole Recipe.
3 ripe Avocados.
1 small Onion, diced.
1 clove Garlic, minced (optional).
1 Tomato, chopped.
1 stalk Cilantro, chopped (optional).
1 Lemon, squeezed for juice (or Lime).
Salt and Pepper, to taste (you can use sea salt, milled black pepper or white pepper powder).
We employed all the ingredients listed above and used Spanish onion a.k.a. red onion, sea salt, lemon juice and white pepper powder.
Cut avocados in halves and scoop flesh into a medium serving bowl and mash with fork.
Stir in onion, garlic, tomato and cilantro, if using.
Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper according to taste.
Chill in fridge for at least half an hour to blend in flavours.
Serve with chips, taco shell or soft tortillas. Enjoy!
Our taco dinner had very contrasting textures from the chewy tortilla, succulent meat, juicy tomato, spicy raw onions, creamy soft avocado. The cheeses added oomph to it. I had cheddar and mozzarella, which melted slightly in the residual heat of the hot filling. It was amazing to me!
Happy cooking, eating and bonding! 🙂
