Guacamole and fajitas. Mexican flags and mariachi bands. Margaritas, margaritas, and…. more margaritas.
It’s Cinco de Mayo!
This year, I’m so pleased to team up with Avocados From Mexico. In fact, you could call me the Avo Whisperer. All year, I’ll be sharing the best recipes featuring – you guessed it – Avocados From Mexico, in addition to party ideas, nutrition facts, meal inspiration and more. And today, I’m excited to let you in on a little secret… a recipe for the BEST GUAC you’ll ever have!
Here’s what you’ll need to whip up a batch of this delicious spread:
5 Hass Avocados from Mexico, cut into medium chunks
3 roma tomatoes, seeded & diced
1 serrano chili, finely diced
3 tbsp garlic chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 lime, juiced
3 tbsp olive oil
sea salt season to taste
Halve Hass Avocados and remove seeds. Cut into medium chunks (about a half inch thick) inside the Avocado shells, then scoop into a bowl with a spoon. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. (Don’t mash it into a paste; leave somewhat chunky.) Season with salt and taste, then mix a little bit more to combine thoroughly. Pair with corn chips.
All ingredients can be adjusted to suit your taste! We use non-traditional lemon juice instead of lime juice, because I’m a fan of the milder flavour. (As we say in my house, “lemon in the guac, lime in the cerveza!”) And, if you’re hankering for more Avo Inspiration, join our #AvoMexico Twitter Chat today at 12pm EDT! We’ll dish on the best, um, dishes! See you at noon!
