Holy Guacamole, Batman...
One of my favorites while watching the Dawgs on TV, which will be happening soon,
National Guacamole Day on September 16 brings fresh flavors together for the perfect celebration.
Avocados shine as the star of this dip! Lime juice, tomatoes, onion, and seasonings make guacamole a guilt-free addition to any snack or meal.
Since avocados fall under the superfood category, feel free to indulge. Packed full of good fats and nutrients, along with the fresh taste of lime and hint of spice, the dip is flavorful. It’s easy to make, too. Take it to work or use it for a party dish.
Guacamole is versatile, too. For example, add it as a topping on a quesadilla or even add it to a salad. Of course, the simplest way to enjoy is by dipping your favorite tortilla chip.
Originating with the Aztecs in Mexico, guacamole is an avocado-based sauce that has become popular in American cuisine as a dip, condiment, and salad ingredient.
Using a mortar and pestle, mash ripe avocados and then mixing in sea salt. Beyond the tomatoes, onion, garlic, and lemon juice, hot sauce, yogurt or other seasonings can be added. If a celebration calls for spicier guacamole, add jalapenos, chilis, cumin, or red pepper.
"Batman", is that Indian guacamole?
I have not yet discovered how to edit poor typing. Any help appreciated.
Click on the little gear on the upper right hand corner of your post. That's the edit function. It gives you 2 hours to make an edit.
You can use english peas and use 1/2 avacado to reduce the total fats. You can't tell the difference.
BTW, I love Guac. I always add a touch of Cumin and Chili powder to spice it up.
I've never made homemade guac but this thread makes me want to do it. I love avocado. Lemons, limes, tomatoes, onion, garlic, cumin, and chili powder all sound good too. I'll have to make a second batch with English peas mixed in to compare.
Appreciate the thread, Don, and everyone's input!
Don't use canned peas. Those things are awful.
Not too hard. The food network guy from Georgia has a pretty simple recipe online. Alton Brown I think his name is...that’s the one i used.
I even drop in about a Tablespoon of Lea & Perrins, depending on the amount. Always add Jalapena.
Love Guac!!!!! We add freshly cut cilantro.
Always enjoyed guacamole dip but have yet to make it homemade. Year before last, my blood work was showing higher than average cholesterol levels so I looked up "healthy food" for help lower it. Bingo, avocados ranked really high. I started doing avocado toast 3 times a week for breakfast.
1 slice of whole wheat bread toasted.
Smear of low fat mayo. (Duke's)
Lowery's seasoned salt
Lemmon pepper seasoning.
Stack and season to taste.
My cholesterol was normal this year and the Doc said " Whatever you're doing, keep doing it!"
But one thing I have found out about avocados, is the timing....
Yes, that's another ingredient I always use. I also add some type of hot sauce like Tabasco, Crystal or whatever I have... but never Buffalo hot wing sauce.
