Oh, the cilantro is just about out of control and the avocados I bought several days are in their prime, that means it’s Taco Tuesday! We’re cooking it up at home this week.
Seems like, as the years have passed, the avocados have had less and less flavor and as that happened we started adding more and more ingredients, to our guacamole, to make up for the lack of flavor. Well, somewhere along the line, maybe when we were in FL, over the winter, (and didn’t have our entire spice cabinet with us) we discovered that avocados seemed to have gotten much tastier and that there is no longer any reason to cover up the flavor! Hallelujah!
Can I get an Amen???
So it’s been back to the basics for us and we are loving it!
Cilantro Lovers Perfect Guacamole
printer friendly version
2 avocados, that just give a bit up near the stem area
1/4 cup of a Vidalia onion, finely chopped. A piece of red onion would probably work, though they tend to be stronger…
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
8-10 pickled jalapeño pepper pieces (aka slices), chopped up, as fine or as large as you can handle
1 1/2 limes, juiced, if it’s extra juicy 1 will do it, more if it’s not so much, we like more!
1/4 tsp sea salt, or to taste
Remove the seeds, peel, and mash the avocados. Toss in the onion, peppers, cilantro, and half of the lime juice. Stir it up, sprinkle with salt and additional lime. Pure, simple, unadulterated flavor…. sort of.
Served up with our local flour tortillas toasted over the gas stove, lettuce, tomatoes, more jalapeno over a schmear of refried beans and a sprinkling of seasoned ground beef. Top with Amanda’s famous non~dairy riviera sauce and you are good to go!
Well, once you pour up a frosty one, you are!
