With the weather hot and not conducive to hot kitchen activities, we’re always on the lookout for good, cool recipes. Dave is in charge of the guacamole in our house and this is his recipe. We have a couple of boys who can eat their weight in guac!
Mash 3-4 really ripe avocados
- 1/2 very finely chopped onion
- 1 finely chopped tomato
- 2/3 c. sour cream (optional: we rarely add sour cream)
- 2 T. lime or lemon juice
- salt to taste
- 1/2 c. salsa or pico de gallo to taste
This guacamole will turn black if left out (not that it ever lasts that long around here) so be sure to use it quickly or place a piece of plastic wrap directly against the top surface of the guacamole so that no air is in contact with it.
Eat this guacamole with chips and veggies or as a garnish on hamburgers, salads, quesadillas, burritos, chimichangas, etc. It’s also possible that avocados are a food group. Also a vegetable.
