**Happy 4th of July everyone (in the USA)!!!I miss being out of the States on this holiday. We will be celebrating by grilling on Saturday down at the garden. Hamburgers and hot dogs…can’t get any more 4th of July-ish traditional than that!**
I was searching the inter-tubes for a good-looking guacamole recipe the other day. And, I found one, but little did I know that it would be the best tasting guacamole recipe I have ever made!
It was flavorful, but not over powering, creamy and chunky at the same time, and gone 1/2 way through our meal! For the first time I made guacamole and there were no leftovers!
I found the recipe here at The Daily Green.
Here’s how I did it:
2 ripe Avocados, peeled and pitted
juice of 1 Lime
1/4 Cup minced Red Onion
2 Tablespoons minced Cilantro
1 small clove Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt or 1/2 teaspoon Table Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1 Tablespoon minced Jalapeño
Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Remove the avocado from the skin by scooping it out with a spoon. Place the avocado in a bowl and mash it gently with a fork. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
Serve immediately. The recipe also says you can cover and chill for up to 3 hours, but I would just leave everything prepared and put it together in the last minute.
Makes 3-4 servings (but it will go so fast you should double it!).
