Quickie Guacamole

SAMSUNGI don’t know what in the world got me started on guacamole today. Maybe it is because I’m making a cheesy chicken Mexican casserole tomorrow. Maybe it is because my friend Sue was talking about avocadoes. Maybe because I ate a Santa Fe Chicken sandwich (with guacamole) today.

I have never made guacamole nor have I actually peeled an avocado. The only time I was close was about 8 years ago. I bought an avocado with the intention of peeling it for the first time. I got lazy and it molded and well, that’s the end of that story.

Quickie Guacamole (adapted from allrecipes.com)

  • 2 Hass avocadoes
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped (use about 3/4 of the onion first)
  • Juice from 1/4 lime
  • Pinch of salt, Pinch of pepper

Toss the chopped onion and tomatoes, garlic and lime juice in a small bowl. Cut the avocado in half, take the pit out and score the avocado lengthwise and crosswise. Invert the avocado and remove the meat. Mash in a separate bowl. Gently stir in the other bowl of ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can always add more lime juice as well.

*I de-seed my tomatoes. I’d rather have just the flesh. The consistency was perfect.

  1. So next time, try a little cilantro, chopped fresh jalapeno and a couple of dashes of chili powder or cumin. 🙂
