Oh boy, oh boy! When I mentioned that the next state I was going to do was California, almost every comment I received with suggestions, included two things: Wine and Avocados.
So in light of that, I thought I would share this delicious homemade guacamole recipe with you!
To make this simple treat, begin by mincing about a third of a cup of red onion. Toss those in a bowl with a small tomato that has been seeded and diced, and a clove of grated garlic.
Next, you’ll need three avocados. Split them open, and score the insides with a knife.
Scoop the meat out with a spoon, into the bowl.
Then add a pinch of cayenne pepper and a big pinch of cumin.
Mash this all together with a fork, until it is the consistency that you like.
Finally, juice a lime into the bowl. I like the juice of a whole lime, but start with half, stir it in and give it a taste. If you want more, go for it and juice the other half as well.
Enjoy your delicious guacamole any way you like it. For dinner tonight I made some chicken and bacon quesadillas inspired by The Unorthodox Epicure. The guacamole was scrumptious with them.
Next week I’ll be featuring a dish inspired by the state of Colorado.
