Next time you're out shopping, grab these simple ingredients. And maybe double the amount, because guac is not just for chips anymore. Use it as an additional ingredient in almost anything for a flavor boost. Or slather it on grilled cheese sandwiches, roasted chicken, or coat some pasta with it. Go crazy.
Our latest batch turned into the cheese, black bean, guacamole quesadillas above. I'm drooling just remembering them!
2 ripe avocados
1/2 of small onion diced super fine
2 cloves garlic diced and smashed up with a little salt
1 small tomato deseeded and diced fine
2 T cilantro diced
1/2 a lemon's juice
pinch of cumin and a little salt
Mash avocado until slightly lumpy and mix in remaining ingredients until a little airy. Then drool.
