Mario and I love this guacamole! But, when the kids see it they about die. "Oh, no...I don´t like it...please don´t make me eat it." Last night we had Mucho Nachos and Jonah wanted to help with dinner. He spooned the avocado into a bowl, mashed it, and added most of the ingredients himself. He even chopped some of the cilantro. When I told him he needed to taste it to make sure we didn´t need to add anything else, he said, "It´s delicious!". During dinner he kept asking for more guacamole. So, if your kids don´t like something, try having them help make it!
Tip: Add 1/2 of the jalepeños, cilantro and lime juice, taste and add more as your taste desires.
1 or more tablespoons jalepeño chiles, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted and peeled
1 large, ripe tomato, finely chopped
1/4 cup lightly packed cilantro (coriander) leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Salt to taste
Mash the chiles and garlic with a fork to form a paste. Add the avocado and mash until incorporated. Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato. Mix in the cilantro and lime juice. Season to taste with salt. Adjust other seasonings to taste. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle the guacamole with the remaining tomato and serve.
Makes approximately 2 cups, depending on the size of the avocados.
