Guacamole

Avocados are a staple in our house. Used as a snack on it’s own with salt, pepper and Everything Bagel Seasoning. They also get added to our smoothies or are used to make this easy guacamole. We use it as a snack with veggies and plantain chips or can be used to go along with this chicken fajita recipe.


Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados

  • 4 cherry tomatoes chopped

  • 2 tablespoons red or white onion, chopped finely (you can also rinse the onion under cold water)**

  • Handful of cilantro chopped (add to your liking)

  • Jalapeno pepper diced (about 1 tablespoon, again adjust to your liking)

  • Juice of 1 fresh squeezed lime

  • Salt to your liking


Directions:

  1. Remove avocado from skin.

  2. Add chopped cherry tomatoes, finely chopped onion, cilantro and jalapeno. Mix well.

  3. Squeeze lime and add juice to avocado mixture.

  4. Add salt to your liking.



**What does soaking onions in cold water do?

The cold water neutralizes many of the sulfur compounds responsible for the strong, almost hot, taste of onions. In doing so, the onions lose that characteristic bite, allowing the pure flavor and subtle sweetness to shine through
