guacamole

I’ve tried my fair share of #guacs, but @amarantobklyn has one of the best so far! If you are in #Bushwick, you should give them a try. #Avocados are packed with #antioxidants and #antiinflammatory properties. The high fat (#healthyfat) also helps absorb #fatsolublevitamins. A quarter of an avocado has 75 calories, loads of #unsaturated fat, and 3 grams of fiber. #Guacamole-on! #bushwicknutrition #lazynutrition #lazynutritionist #homemadefood #homemadetortillas #corntortillas (at Amaranto)

Spice Up Your Guac!

imageAvocados are my favorite fruit. I honestly can eat them with anything (or even on their own). That said, I can’t get enough guacamole! So, I decided to break down the infamous guacamole recipe.

Spicy Guacamole

Servings: to share.

Ingredients:

  • 4 avocados
  • ¼ white, medium-sized onion (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 ½ limes
  • 1 handful of cilantro
  • ½ medium-sized tomato (preferably organic or local)
  • ½ - 1 red chile serrano (optional, but delicious!)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Step 1: Mince white onion and red serrano. Place in a cup. Ahem, the Mexican flag with veggies…

Step 2: Add lime juice to mix. This will help soften the skin of the onion and serrano, making it easier to digest, and will even out the taste.

Step 3: Mince cilantro and mix in with serrano, onion, and lime juice.

Step 4: Mash avocados.

Step5: Combine avocados with onion, serrano, lime, and cilantro. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Step6:Cut tomatoes in small pieces. Eliminate any juice from the tomatoes; this will only make the guacamole soggy. Add tomatoes right before serving.

Step7: Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Step8: Enjoy with whole, grain or corn tortillas!
