The buttery rich flavor of avocados and the natural health benefits from eating them, make this recipe a “must” to have on hand. Full of vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, fiber and those heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, everything about avocados is great. Hence the name great guacamole.
2 ripe Haas avocados
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Roma tomato, finely diced
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 large jalapeno, minced
2 scallions, fine chopped white and green parts
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, stemmed and chopped
Halve and pit avocados. Scoop out flesh into medium bowl. Using two dinner knives cross cut avocados into small 1/2 inch pieces. Add lime juice, salt, and garlic and mix slightly. Fold in tomato, onion, scallions, jalapeno and cilantro. Cover guacamole with plastic wrap that has been pressed right onto the surface of the avocado and refrigerate. This will keep it from browning for up to three days. Makes 2 cups.
