Tonight's Guacamole Recipe
I made guacamole today, and for the first time it turned out. Maybe because while I was making it, I was really appreciating the true awesomeness of a just-perfectly-ripe avocado. There's just such a short window. Plus, the tomato I used was one of seven runty tomatoes that grew in our "garden" on the sidewalk outside our apartment. It was pretty tasty.
Adapted from one I found here:
- 1 ripe avocados
- 1/4 c. finely chopped onion
- 1/4 c. chopped cilantro
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 small tomato
- 1 Tbsp lime juice (or juice of 1 fresh lime)
- 1 diced pepperoncini (or jalapeno perhaps)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- dash pepper
"Do you make guacamole?
Yes, I do make guacamole.
Uh, I would like a side of guacamole on my Tostitos
I like to dip the Tostitos in the guacamole
Can I get a basket, I told you about a basket of chips"
