the guac, the whole guac and nothin but the guac...

Mmmmm....I love guacamole....

I posted on facebook that I was eating guacamole and a friend replied saying her church was given dozens of crates of avocadoes (for free) and she wants the recipe STAT!

I don't indulge in guacamole that often (as to keep the mystery in our relationship), but when I do, its got to be fresh and homemade.  None of this pre-packaged buy it in a jar crap. Here's the reason why:


3 ripe haas avocadoes
1 lime
chopped fresh cilantro
1 plum tomato
1/4 purple onion
1 glove of garlic crushed
freshly ground sea salt
1 jalepeno pepper (optional - depending on how hot you like it)

Slice the avocado in 1/2 and dig out the flesh with a spoon (save the pit...I'll tell you why later).  Mash avocado in a large bowl.  Add the juice of 1 lime, chopped cilantro (depending on taste), chopped tomato, diced onion, garlic and sea salt.  Stir together and let mellow in the fridge for an hour.  You can eat it right away if you just can't wait.

Here's the deal with the pits.  If you're making this in advance, keep the pits and toss them in the bowl with the finished guacamole.  It will keep the avocado flesh from turning colour. (thank you uri for the recipe!)

K, so on the menu this week:

Salsa Stoup and Quesadilla's (one of the reasons I made the guac)
Polynesian Apricot Chicken
Bolognese with pappardelle
Boneless Chicken Cacciatore (slow cooker)
