Recipe

Guacamole


Ingredients

Fresh avocado
Tomatoes (seeds removed, skins, and chopped)
White onion, chopped fine
1/2 fresh lime, squeezed
Cilantro, chopped
Cumin powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Tabasco sauce
1 Tbsp olive oil

Directions

You can adjust the portions of each ingredient depending on how many avocados you have. For example, 3 ripe avocados would use 1 nice tomato, onion to taste, 1/2 lime, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper, and Tabasco to your liking.

Mix together and serve at room temperature or chilled, depending on your preference.

This guacamole recipe is always a big hit with never any leftovers, even when I make extra! It's my son's recipe. Brooks usually serves it with favorite chips as a dip before the meal, but recently he put dollops into small fluted individual shells and placed them on each dinner plate. It made a nice presentation, and he was teased about going into the restaurant business! I must say, even for Brooks the expert, this turns out different with every batch. Part of the intrigue, I guess!

Avocados are inviting color-wise and easy to prepare, with huge health benefits. One avocado provides 11 grams of fiber -- almost one half of the recommended daily intake -- and it contains about 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. And you can grow a plant from the pit! Have fun with this quick and easy salad.
