Quick Bite # 7: Fresh and Easy Guacamole at Home

Yes!  You can make guacamole at home in no time, and I am proof of that!  The avocados are looking good at farmer’s markets and grocery stores at this time of year, so why not use them in a healthy recipe like guacamole to put on delicious pork tacos, as a dip with a snack of carrots and celery, or as a topping for delicious nachos or a nice piece of skirt steak fresh off the grill.  

Here is the recipe from this episode:

Ingredients:

1 ripe avocado

1 tomato (plum or vine-ripened tomatoes are great)

1/4 medium red onion

1 jalapeño (you decide if you want extra heat by leaving the seeds and membranes in or removing them)

1/2 lime 

1/4 cup cilantro

1 teaspoon adobo seasoning (not the sauce that comes from the chipotle in adobo sauce, although that might add a smoky twist to the recipe, so if you try it, let me know!)

Preparation: 

  1. Chop all the veggies to relatively the same size and slice the lime.
  2. Chop the cilantro.
  3. Chop the cilantro.
  4. In a large bowl, add the avocado and mash it with a fork to desired consistency.
  5. Squeeze the lime into the bowl and stir it into the avocado.
  6. Add the chopped veggies to the bowl and stir to combine.
  7. Add the adobo of your choice and season to taste.
  8. Stir well.
  9. Taste.  Finish with an extra squeeze of lime and any extra adobo seasoning you like.
  10. ENJOY!

Our inspiration for this recipe comes from one of our favorite restaurants in town, Mexico Lindo.  If you are ever in our neck of the woods, you should definitely check them out.  Check in on Yelp, too, if you want to try it for free along with the purchase of a tasty meal! (We recommend the brisket tacos... life-changing!!  Possible podcast episode at a later date!)
