Thank you for all the well wishes. It's amazing what the power of prayer and a little rest can do for your body! I am feeling so much better already. Which is a good thing because I have to take my quarterlies this week. I have to be in top shape to get through them!
Today's letter is G. I am highlighting GUACAMOLE. Boy do I love fresh guacamole. I slather it on wraps, chips, burgers, tacos, chicken and just about anything and everything I can. This is my recipe for fresh guacamole.
3 ripe avocados (peeled, pitted and cubed)
juice of 1 lime
1/2 red onion, very finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced small
1 tsp jalapeno
3 tablespoons of fresh cilantro chopped
1 tomato, diced
salt and fresh ground pepper
one tablespoon of sour cream (this is my secret ingredient, it makes the guac so creamy and delicious)
In medium sized bowl, thoroughly combine all the ingredients (except tomato) until the mixture becomes like a paste. Add the tomato, mixing gently. Taste. You can adjust here by adding more jalapeno if you like more spice, or more salt and pepper if necessary. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving.
Tip: When making for guests, keep in mind that guacamole will go brown quickly and look yuck. I make my guacamole no more than two hours in advance of company, and refrigerate immediately after I am done making it.
