I love everything avocado. It contains good healthy fat. I usually cut avocado in half, sprinkle with salt and fresh black pepper and eat it by scooping it out with a spoon – makes a healthy snack. Off course it has to be Haas Avocados. From time to time I love to make Guacamole and I’ve always gotten favorable comments from anyone who eats it. I welcome your feedback on this recipe.
This is a very garlicky flavored guacamole with lime juice. A hit every time I make it and it's served with corn chips. You can keep it healthier by using endives instead of chips. Or simply eat it with a fork - no chips needed.
- 3 haas avocados ripened
- 2 tablespoons lime juice fresh squeezed
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped
- 1/3 cup red onions finely chopped
- 3 jalapeno
- 1 plum or vine ripened tomato
- 3 garlic cloves - medium sized minced
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Cut the jalapeño length wise in half, remove the seeds and finely chop
Dice the tomato - (small diced)
Cut each avocado lengthwise in half and remove the large seed
In a medium mixing bowl, scoop the avocado into it using a spoon
Using the back of the spoon or a fork, mash the avocados leaving some lumps
Sprinkle the lime juice over the avocado, add the chopped cilantro, red onions, minced garlic, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. Gently mix the ingredients into the mashed avocado
Add in the diced tomatoes and combine

You can add more or less jalapeño depending on how spicy or mild you like it. Use a glove when deseeding the jalapeño.
