I think that avocados are just about the most wonderful food in the world. Good for breakfast, (Avocado Omelet, Anyone?), Lunch (See Picture) and Dinner (Avocado Half, Red Wine Vinegar and Good Olive Oil, Yum!). I have even enjoyed avocados for dessert – just Google: avocado chocolate cake and see what I mean. Susan and I met at Verde Taqueria for lunch today, and although all the food was delicious – I could have just eaten the guac, chips and salsa and been happy. Here’s my favorite recipe for Guacamole:
2 ripe mashed avocados
1/4 cup minced ripe tomato
1/2 tsp minced garlic clove
1 TB minced onion
1 Tsp fresh lime juice
Dash of hot sauce to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Scoop onto a PLATE, flatten slightly, and scatter the top with 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar, (Cabots makes an Awesome 50% Reduced Fat Cheddar).
That’s it. No mayo, sour cream or any other fillers. Just luscious, creamy goodness. This is the kind of guacamole your guests will swoon over, and you will make for dinner over and over again.
