Here's another recipe. I'm not a huge fan of guacamole, but I thought I would give it another try. I found out that I'm still not really a fan. I did make this for a specific recipe I had in mind though which I will post at another time. Although I probably won't be snacking on guacamole with chips again anytime soon, it is a nice topping for many mexican meals. It's not the taste I didn't like as much as the texture. Or maybe I shouldn't have made this just a few days after recovering from the stomach flu when I still didn't have my appetite back. Oh well. There are lots of variations for making guacamole, here's the recipe I used:
3 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
1 roma tomato, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
juice of 1/2 lime
hot sauce to taste (optional)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Cut avocado into large chunks and mash coarsely in a bowl with a fork.
Add remaining ingredients and stir gently. The guacamole does not have to be absolutely smooth. Leaving a few small chunks is fine and some people prefer it that way. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips, or a topping for mexican food. Enjoy!
