Guacamole

Jesse loves guacamole. Not only is it healthy, but it’s so quick and easy. The most strenuous task is cutting up the veggies that go into it, otherwise it’s all stirring and done in 5 minutes. I normally like to make it and refrigerate it for an hour (so the flavors and spices will blend), but Jesse doesn’t normally let it get that far. I barely get done stirring it before he’s dipping a chip into it.

Lately, he’s found another really great way to eat it. Meijers has been selling this artisan bread called “Black Bean & Salsa” and Jesse loves spreading guacamole on slices as if it was butter. He’ll eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until the loaf is gone.

The amount of the onions, tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeños is up to you. I don’t usually measure them, but I do give a rough estimate in the ingredients. I will be honest, about the only thing I do measure is the lime juice and that’s because too much or too little makes a big difference.

Ingredients:
2 large ripe pitted, peeled Avocados
1 medium, finely chopped Roma tomatoes
2 finely chopped Jalapeños
1/4 medium chopped Onion
1-2 finely chopped Garlic Clove
2 tbsp fresh Cilantro finely chopped (or to taste)
2 tbsp Juice, lime
1/2 tsp Salt
dash Pepper, black
dash Pepper, cayenne
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder

Directions:
In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Stir in cayenne pepper, cilantro and black pepper. Mix in onion, jalapeños, tomatoes, and garlic. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.
