Guacamole (Best)

Guacamole (Best)
Jul 04 2008 **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. It was flavorful, but not over powering, creamy and chunky at the same time, and gone 1/2 way through our meal! I found the recipe here at The Daily Green. Here’s how I did it: Ingredients: 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 Directions: Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Serve immediately. Makes 3-4 servings (but it will go so fast you should double it!). ShareThis Leave a Reply
