i'm wishing for all that lovely cool weather Seattle was having last week. back here in the rest of the world, it is hot and muggy, and i don't feel like doing anything. even eating. well, except for this guacamole (ok, and maybe a pint of Ben & Jerry's....)
i have tried all kinds of guacamole, but i like this one the best. it's my own "recipe", and it's very simple and no frills. i use the term "recipe" loosely since it's not an exact science...kind of like a handful of this and a dash of that. really, it's however i am feeling at the time i make it. the key is to use good fresh, organic ingredients and to eat it with really good chips. i am a sucker for Target's Archer Farms Organic Yellow Corn Chips (pictured) and Trader Joe's Organic Yellow Corn Rounds.
If you want to make just one serving as pictured, use:
1 medium-sized ripe avocado
1 small ripe roma tomato, diced
chopped red onion (i like to use a handful or two, but it's your call)
1-2 lime slices, squeezed
sea salt to taste
scoop out the avocado into a bowl and squeeze the lime wedge(s) on it before you mash it. i find that it helps with the process. forks seem to work the best for mashing. once the avocado is all mashed up, mix in the tomatoes, onions, and salt.
