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.
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
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.
