Ready to make some fresh guacamole? We LOVE guacamole in our house (otherwise known as “green candy”). In fact, we love it so much that I make it three or four times a week. It’s a rare week we don’t have avocados on the counter ready to go. Since Cinco de Mayo is Sunday, I figured I’d better share it!
This guacamole recipe is so simple and so delicious that I’ll often make it to enjoy with dinner, for our after school snack, lunch, heck I even make it in the condo when we travel. Get out your ingredients and you’ll be eating it in less than five minutes. Ready for some green candy?
1 ripe avocado
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T. red onion, chopped
freshly cracked pepper
Step one: Cut your avocado in half, scoop out the flesh, and put in a small bowl.
Step two: Add garlic, onion, jalapeno, and squeeze lime into a bowl over the avocado.
Step three: Sprinkle a bit of cumin, sea salt, and cracked pepper on top. Mix well with a spoon.
Step four: Taste and add more seasonings if you desire.
This guacamole is great on sandwiches, with veggies, on burritos, tacos, and of course, with chips!
Do you make a special meal for Cinco de Mayo? We always have something yummy – fish tacos, chicken and black bean burritos, or a make your own taco bar. Of course, the sides include this guacamole, salsa, and margaritas! It’s a fun night!
