This past May our home school group took a cruise to Cozumel and Cancun. If you are ever near Cancun – spend a day at Nachi Cocum beach. The food there was incredible and our kiddos discovered fresh guacamole while visiting.
I know there are many variations when making guacamole, but often the taste of the avocado is masked by the heat from the jalapeño. If you prefer HOT, you can always add some chopped jalapeño with seeds. But the lime juice gives this dip plenty of zing.
- 2 avocados
- 4 Tablespoons lime juice
- 2-3 fresh garlic cloves – pressed or finely chopped
- ¼ cup mild salsa
Halve the avocados by cutting lengthwise towards center. If the avocado seeds weren’t HUGE and HARD, you could cut all the way through the center. Once the halves are separated, remove the avocado seed. Then remove the avocado flesh from the peel with a spoon. Place in a medium mixing bowl.
Add the lime juice, pressed or chopped fresh garlic, and the salsa. Mix on low speed until well blended. Best when served fresh with corn chips, or over nachos. For a picture of the guacamole, you’ll have to see the next post – Super Bowl Nachos (coming soon).
