Guacamole. Most of the time when we hear that we think…chips, salsa, great Mexican food, an ice cold Corona, and maybe a margarita. What we do not think of is a condiment. Guacamole is a great healthy fat replacement for things like mayo. Try it on a sandwich…you already know we are in the bag for flat out and fold its….or a wrap. How about on a burger or chicken breast.
- 2 medium-size ripe avocados
- 2 to 3 Tbs. fresh lime juice
- 3/4 tsp. kosher salt; more to taste
- 1/2 tsp. ground coriander (optional, if you do not have it skip it!)
- Pinch ground cumin
- 3 to 4 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tsp. minced fresh jalapeño (optional not everyone in my house will eat it with this)
Halve the avocados, pit them, and scoop the flesh with a large spoon into a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle the 2 Tbs. lime juice over the avocados, add the salt, coriander, and cumin, and use a wooden spoon to break up the avocados, stirring until they’re coarsely mashed. Stir in 3 Tbs. of the cilantro and the jalapeño. Taste and add more lime juice, cilantro, and salt as needed.
