Guacamole is so easy to make, so good for you and adds an extra kick to any dish…remember to make extra and use throughout the week.
- 3 avocados, pitted and roughly chopped…save the pit
- 2-3 TBS fresh lime juice
- 2-3 TBS cilantro, chopped
- 3/4-1 cup red onion, finely chopped
- 3/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 serrano pepper, finely chopped…seeds removed
Add all your ingredients. Mix well. Drizzle a little olive oil for extra richness. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
To keep the guacamole from turning brown, put the avocado pits in the guacamole or if refrigerating, lay a piece of parchment paper over the guacamole and then cover with plastic wrap or dish cover.
Be careful when chopping the serrano pepper, wash hands thoroughly and avoid eye contact. I freeze my serranos, so when it’s time to use it, I cut off the size I need and finely chop the frozen pepper, seeds and all. This seems to avoid the possible pepper oil from getting into my eyes (especially if you wear contacts).
