Let’s talk guacamole. It’s a hit at parties, great on a turkey sandwich, and makes chips healthy(ish).
We have an avocado tree that, for several months of the year, provides huge beautiful avocados. In Hawaii’s grocery stores avocados cost your left arm, so you can bet we made use of our avocado tree.
I’ve made this guacamole several times, and it is so dang good. It has your basics – limes, garlic, cilantro, as well as cumin and cayenne for some seasoning. Mix, taste, and season to your liking.
3 avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pinch cayenne pepper
In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and garlic. Stir in cumin and cayenne pepper. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
