Guacamole

Share if you Care: "Spread The Health"

Guacamole is so easy to make, so good for you and adds an extra kick to any dish…remember to make extra and use throughout the week.

Ingredients:

    • 3 avocados, pitted and roughly chopped…save the pit
    • 2-3 TBS fresh lime juice
  • 2-3 TBS cilantro, chopped
  • 3/4-1 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 serrano pepper, finely chopped…seeds removed

Directions:

Add all your ingredients.  Mix well.  Drizzle a little olive oil for extra richness.  Serve immediately or refrigerate.

Hints:

To keep the guacamole from turning brown, put the avocado pits in the guacamole or if refrigerating, lay a piece of parchment paper over the guacamole and then cover with plastic wrap or dish cover.

Be careful when chopping the serrano pepper, wash hands thoroughly and avoid eye contact.  I freeze my serranos, so when it’s time to use it, I cut off the size I need and finely chop the frozen pepper, seeds and all.  This seems to avoid the possible pepper oil from getting into my eyes (especially if you wear contacts).
