Fresh Guacamole

Standard

Aaaaand we’re back! Sorry for the post hiatus. Thankfully, today has brought new scrumptiousness, an addictive guacamole recipe, per request from one of our commenters. The beautiful thing about guacamole is that it is perfectly acceptable to wing it, if you have a rough idea of how you like your guac to taste. Personally, I prefer it salty (over-salty, if you ask miss Caty…) and limey, with bits of tomato and red onion. This is a general recipe, for guacamole the way we enjoy it- but let it be stated that ALL ingredients should be adjusted to your personal preference. Enjoy.

Fresh Guacamole

4 avacados
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup shredded cilantro
1 lime’s worth of juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Mash avocados in bowl until somewhat smooth. Stir in other ingredients to taste.
  2. Serve with tortilla chips and eat the whole thing. Then complain about how full you are.

 

PS If you’ve got leftover guacamole, whip up a Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Standard

Hello, friends!

I would just like to quickly share the grilled cheese I just made. Guacamole grilled cheese: made with cheddar cheese, guacamole, caramelized onions and tomatoes on whole grain bread. It’s SO good. If you have an avocado and cheese in your fridge right now, please please make this. You won’t regret it, I promise.

It’s still Meatless March, so look out for more vegetarian recipes coming your way very soon! (For those of you who are still carnivorous–I bet this sandwich would be absolutely delicious with the addition of bacon or turkey. Or both!)

For those of you who like to follow recipes, here’s the preparation:

  1. Heat sliced onions and sliced grape tomatoes in olive oil in a cast-iron skillet until lightly browned
  2. Top 1 piece of whole-grain bread with 2 tablespoons of guacamole, shredded cheddar cheese, the onions and tomatoes
  3. Cover with the second piece of bread and heat on the skillet until brown on each side, flipping occasionally
