ah! Here it is…my first food post. After careful examination on what i make in the kitchen, everyone’s hands down favorite is my guacamole. I don’t know about you but I love me some guac. It goes good with chips. It tastes delicious on my burgers. Its better than hot sauce on my tacos. Guacamole is a versatile condiment that should smother all foods! I tend to fall in love with restaurants that make a table side version. I love watching it all come together and love to eat it even more! So one day while watching Carrie Bradshaw’s short move to Paris I thought, im gonna make my own! And ever since then it has been a staple in our fridge. I hope that you love it as much as we do!
.Table Side Guacamole.
- 3-4 very ripe avocados
- 1/2 red onion chopped
- 1 garlic clove chopped
- 1 medium tomato diced
- 1 jalapeno diced (membranes diced if you’re feeling spicy!)
- 1 bunch of cilantro roughly chopped
- juice of one lime
- salt and pepper to taste
- dash of cumin
Prepare your avocados. Peel and cut them into medium pieces and place them in a bowl that is big enough to fit all of your ingredients. Add your onion, garlic, tomato and jalapeno. Stir together with a spatula until the avocado pieces start to break down. If you have avocados that are a little unripe, a potato masher may help you to get the consistency you like. After you reach your desired consistency throw in the cilantro and lime juice. Stir until combined and add your seasonings. And then breathe it in. It smells so good!!
Serve with pretty much anything! But tortilla chips seem to be the pairing choice for most, including my fiance!
If you are feeling in a South Western mood I love to add roasted corn and black beans. To die for!!
And there you have it! Thank you for supporting my first blog o food! It was a simple one, I know, but hopefully I can only go up from here!
