One of the few things that Brae will eat without protest is taco meat (as long as it’s spiced with Taco Bell seasoning mix, he’s discerning enough to tell when we substitute). To make the weekly Mexican dinner a little more interesting for the grown-ups, I started making guacamole. This is another of my recipes that Brandon just raves about, because I make it from scratch (no mix, no electrical appliances – just avocadoes and a fork, or a potato masher if I’m feeling particularly aggressive).
- 2 ripe avocadoes
- 1 medium tomato
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1/2 of a fresh lime
- 1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro
- 1/2 – 1 teaspoon sea salt (to taste)
Peel and pit the avocadoes. Dice the tomato, mince the garlic, and chop the cilantro finely. Mash the avocado with a fork, until it is pasty but still chunky. Add tomato, garlic, lime juice and salt. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed. Enjoy with Multigrain Tostitos (these chips are awesome – way better than regular corn chips).
