Guacamole is such a weird word. But it is perhaps the most delicious dip on the face of the earth.
Guacamole, as weird as it sounds, holds a special place in my heart as it is something that my dad and I have always made together. I have a ton of memories in the kitchen while growing up but some of my fondest revolve around my dad. It is more common (and stereotypical) that the mothers teach the daughters how to cook. However, I learned from both of my parents!
So, from this silly man himself:
What you will need:
-3-4 ripe avocados
-1 bunch of cilantro
-1 clove of garlic
-1/3 red onion
-salt and pepper to taste
What you will do:
1. cut avocados in half and remove the seed. scrape the fruit (yes, it is a fruit) into a medium to large mixing bowl
2. finely dice tomato, garlic, and onion. add to bowl
3. cut the jalapeno in half lengthwise. gently scrape out membrane and seeds. finely dice and add to bowl
4. separate the top of the cilantro from the stems. cut into very thin strips then cut the strips in half
5. roll the lemon on the counter to get the extra juice, cut in half then squeeze half of the lemon over top. do the same with the lime but, use the whole lime
6. with a fork, mash the avocado then stir all of the ingredients together.
7. season with salt and pepper
8. cover tightly with press n' seal and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes
9. whip up a batch of margaritas, serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
What is one of your favorite memories from the kitchen?
