Guacamole


My flatmate and I are addicted to guacamole.  It is always our go-to snack, whether it is while we are lazying around on an weekend afternoon or stumbling in at 2am and looking to satisfy the munchies.  And for some reason, we are always motivated to make it ourselves – I don’t think I have ever purchased pre-made guacamole from the store.  It’s such a quick and healthy snack to make – or if we are feeling fancy, we will make this with layered nachos or taco salads.  We love our guacamole thick and chunky with tons of ingredients thrown together.

Kick it up a notch with Mango Pomegranate Guacamole and Chili Lime Tortilla Chips!

Guacamole

Yields: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, chopped (seeds discarded)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 lime, juiced  (heat in the microwave for 10 seconds if having trouble squeezing it)
  • 1 handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce
  • Dash of crushed pepper flakes
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Mash the avocado gently in a bowl with the freshly squeezed lime juice – I like to leave in some chunks.  Fold in the tomatoes, onions, and cilantro and add in all the seasonings according to your heat preferences!

  1. […] The base recipe of the salsa is known as Pebre, which is a Chilean condiment made of cilantro, chopped onion, olive oil, garlic and chile peppers.  Pebre is a sauce that is typically added to soups and stews, or it can used in the same fashion as ketchup.  Adding fresh chopped tomatoes turns Pebre into Chilean Salsa, or Chancho en Piedra (“Pig on a Rock”).  This salsa is very similar to Pico de Gallo and can be served as a dip, or combined with avocado to make Guacamole.
