I’ll be honest: I have never really tried guacamole. Okay, so why am I posting a recipe for it? Most everyone around me likes it, so I experiment with it (as I do with bananas, which I also don’t like). I have watched many people make it and have studied what they seem to like best. And although I’m not eager for the avocados, I love most of the other flavors. I figured I could give it a shot.
Early tests on my 2-year-old were amusing to watch. First he dipped a chip in like he wasn’t so sure and took a tiny bite. Pretty soon he was scooping up huge amounts to eat. He loved it. So, I thought some of you might, too. 🙂
- 1 avocado, ripe
- 1 – 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/4 c. onion, diced
- 1/4 c. tomato, diced
- 1 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
- 1/4 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- Juice of 1/2 lime
Step 1: First, cut your avocado in half.
Step 2: Remove the seed, and scoop out all the goodness. Put it into a bowl and mash it a little.
Step 3: Mince your garlic, then add it to the bowl.
Step 4: Chop your onion and add that too.
Step 5: Add your cilantro, then squeeze your lime juice in.
Step 6: Chop your tomato and add that too, along with sea salt.
Step 7: Stir it all together.
That’s it. You’re done! Serve with corn chips or fresh veggies as desired.
