Guacamole

3 Apr

Guacamole is one of those things you never get tired of. On its own, in a fajita/taco/burrito, on a sandwich, on a burger…..so many options.

This is super simple, and always a great appetizer go to.

Guacamole

Ingredients:

3 avocados, diced

12 cherry tomatoes finely chopped

1 tbsp red onion or shallot, finely diced

1/2 clove of garlic grated or pressed in a garlic press

the juice of 1/2 a lime

1 tbsp chopped cilantro

a pinch of cumin

a pinch of salt

5 grinds black pepper

Place all your ingredients in a bowl and mash with a fork until desired consistency. I like to leave it a little bit chunky.

The lime keeps it from turning brown.

This doesn’t last long around our house. Approximately 15 minutes.
