Guacamole



Hello, dear friends!
Avocado season will soon be gone, but look how many I have!


What can I do with so many?  Oh, I know, a few ideas come to mind, for example: condition my gorgeous mane, a facial, or even perhaps a chocolate avocado brownie.  But the most logical that comes to mind is guacamole, yes, delicious guacamole, which you and I can enjoy with tortilla chips.  I must admit this is my first time making this dish. The first thing that came to mind was to to look for a recipe from Aaron Sanchez and I am so glad I found it. It's simple to make and truly divine.


                                                            Guacamole


Ingredients:

1 1/2 Hass avocados, halved and pitted  (my avocados were not Hass)

1 serrano chile (seeds removed)

1/4  red onion, diced

Juice of 1 lime

1/4 fresh cilantro

1 Roma tomato, diced

Salt and pepper to tase


Directions:

Put the chile, onion, lime juice and cilantro in a mortar.  Crush and mix the ingredients together.  This process brings out the heat of the chile and the flavors and juices of the cilantro and onion.
Note:  If you do not own a mortar, go and buy one now!  Only kidding. Do this process in a bowl and mash the ingredients with a potato masher.
Mash the avocados and combine with the cilantro mix; add salt and pepper.  Transfer the guacamole to a serving dish and top with diced tomato.  Serve with tortilla chips.

Viva Mexico!
