I am not a vegetable person and do not ever eat avocado - even though I have heard that song about how good it is for the skin. But I am not a dictator and do not discourage the rest of the family from eating it. In fact, I occasionally make Guacamole and serve it as a dip for tortilla chips or as part of a Fajitas meal.
How do I know what it should taste like? Well, I asked the Hub how he liked his guacamole and kept experimenting with different ingredients until he gave the thumbs-up for it. And I now have extra tasters in the Babies though it's difficult removing the bowl of guacamole from them once they start to dip their fingers in it.
I am making Fajitas this evening and have therefore prepared a guacamole. I liked the idea of doing something vegetarian today as I've just had a lovely Indian vegetarian lunch at KB's. Told myself that I would have to start checking out my vegetarian repertoire if I hope to invite some of those healthy vegetarians to my place for lunch.
1 large ripe Avocado
1/4 Yellow Onion
Juice of 2 large Limes
1 Tsp ground Cumin
A handful of Coriander leaves
Half of 1 fresh Green Chilli
1 Tsp ground Chilli or a few drops of Tabasco
1 Garlic clove (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil to taste
2-3 Cherry Tomatoes (cubed)
Mix the avocado, onion, ground cumin, coriander leaves, chilli, salt, pepper, olive oil and lime juice till you get a paste. Smoothness is up to you.
Top with cubed tomatoes and serve. When I told Hub I was making fajitas for dinner, he said to put a bottle of Corona beer in the fridge.
