Amanda’s Guacamole

It’s that time of year when the avocados are ripe, delicious, and usually not $3 each.  I love avocados.  We add them to salads and sandwiches. (I’ll be sharing an avocado chicken salad in a few weeks.) With these magic green things, I create a guacamole that does not last long.  It is simple, fresh, and addictive.  Perfect as a starter to your fajita or taco night.  This amazing guacamole is a staple for any summer get together.  To Avocados! –AF

Amanda’s Guacamole

3 ripe avocados (must be ripe)

1/2 cup chopped tomato

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 jalapeño pepper, chopped

1 T fresh lime juice

1 t salt

freshly ground black pepper

Cut each avocado in half and remove seed from avocado.  Scoop out avocado pulp into a large bowl.  Mash avocado until desired consistency.  I like to leave small chucks in my guacamole.  Add tomatoes, onions, jalapeño, salt, and lime juice.  Stir until avocado mixture is blended.  Top with black pepper.  Serve with tortilla chips.  Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

  1. I live in New Hampshire and I think that when I pay $1.99 for an avocado that it is a lot. Most of the time they are $.99 to $1.29. I would not eat them very often if I had to pay $3.00. It is amazing how prices can be so different in other parts of the country.
