yummy: guacamole

It is sad to say that I am the only avocado lover in the house. This means that the only time I get to devour one is at lunch, usually in the form of guacamole.

Last week they were on super sale so I picked up two.

I usually just wing it with simple ingredients and taste test as I go. Here’s what I used for this batch:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 of a red onion
  • leftover orange bell pepper
  • salt
  • cilantro
  • lime

Normally I don’t use bell pepper but my sister had some leftover in the fridge and I was scared that it was going to go bad before she ate it. 🙂

First I chopped up the onion into tiny pieces. Please make sure they are SMALL pieces! Often times I’m so excited to be eating guacamole that I chop up the onions into larger chunks only to painfully choke them down later when they’re burning my mouth. No good.

Then I chopped up the bell pepper. I could taste them in the guacamole but they didn’t overpower anything so I might start adding them regularly to my recipe. Usually when I make this, I eat the whole thing and lots of chips, so any added veggie is a nice bonus.

Next I mashed up the avocado.

Mixed in the onion and bell pepper then shook in some salt.

I added in the dried cilantro but if you’re fancy (unlike me), you could use fresh. Oo la la.

Finally I squeezed in the ‘fresh’ lime juice and mixed it all together.

Pour a giant bowl of chips and dig in! A tasty, healthy snack… or lunch.


NOTE: My sister just read this post to proofread it and said, ‘Now that just makes me hungry.’

And I responded with, ‘But you don’t like guacamole!’

To which she said, ‘No, but the chips!’

Nice, guacamole hater.

Do you have a favorite food that everyone else seems to hate yet you love it with all your heart? Mushrooms is another one for me!
