Hello There!

Don’t know if people will even read this but I am starting with my “favorite” staple….guacamole!! You’ve got to love “guac”…and this is the time of year when avocado’s are plentiful and tomatoes are the BEST!!!  Be sure to buy “ripe” avocado’s…they are soft when you squeeze them!

Here’s what you will need:

  • 5 ripe avocado’s
  • 3 roma tomatoes, with seeds removed and diced
  • 1/2 C of red onion chopped
  • 1 TBLS minced garlic
  • 1 chipolte pepper in adobo chopped
  • 1/4C of chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1-2 tsp cumin
  • 1-2 tsp red pepper flakes or chili pepper
  • Lime juice for whole lime squeezed into bowl
  • some salsa in a jar…to add flavor

Then get a potato masher and start mashing!!!!  As you are doing this, taste it and see whether or not you want to add more seasoning…it’s all personal preference…but DO taste it!!!!  Start off slow with the chipolte pepper because you can always add to it…not the other way around!!!   Then, once you are happy with it, get the corn chips out, crack a nice cold beer and ENJOY!!!!!
