Amazing and Easy Guacalome Recipe

I often get asked for the recipe for the Guacamole I make. So I thought this is the best place to share. I am a big lover of Mexican food, I developed a taste for it when we lived in Florida, so many awesome Mexican restaurants! Its unfortunate that it is so difficult to get really good, authentic Mexican food around these parts. This recipe was given to me by my friend Cyndi a number of years ago, and I have been making it regularly ever since, and I still have trouble not eating it all immediately, it's that good!

Ingredients:

3 Ripe Hass Avocados

2 Roma Tomatoes

1 Lime

1/2 Brown Onion

1 clove of Garlic

A bunch of Coriander (Cilantro for the Americans)

Salt



What To Do:

Firstly, mash the avocados in a bowl, cut the lime in half and cover the avocados with juice from 1/2 lime

Chop the onion into small pieces and then mix in

Halve and de-seed the tomatoes, then chop tomato and mix in

Crush the garlic clove and add that to the mixture

Pick off a handful of coriander leaves, chop finely and mix in

Add a couple of pinches of salt

Use the remaining half of the lime and squeeze juice over mixture to your taste

Mix it all together and cover and put the Guacalome in the fridge, Or you can serve immediately but I like to let the favors have time to mix in.

Tips:

When refrigerating the guacamole keep the avocado pits and put them in to help stop the avos from turning brown.

Keeping leftover coriander (cilantro) in a glass of water can help it for last a lot longer than it would in the fridge.


Hope you enjoy, I like to eat this as a dip with cornchips, in a burrito, on top of enchiladas or you can use it as a spread in a salad sandwich.
