It really is all about the food sometimes. I love good guacamole. When it's fresh, made with quality ingredients, it just rocks, seriously.
So, let's talk about it, guacamole, that sort of mysterious green dip, the green stuff that sometimes looks more like what one would find in a baby's diaper than anywhere else.
Please now. Don't get mad about the reference to the baby diaper.
It's just that I don't do the pureed green upon green thing. I just can't stand that stuff. Here is what I do. I do the chunky version. Okay, see below.
Four, yes four, avadocos, Hass preferably.
Two roma tomatoes, diced
One fresh lime, or two, depending on your preference
One Jalepeno pepper, seeded and diced
Smoked cumin, to taste
Red pepper flakes
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
Cilantro, rough chopped
Good salty tortilla chips
One large bowl
Scoop the meat out of the avocados and drop into a bowl. Chop carefully because the avacodos tend to bruise easily. Throw in the chopped romas, the jalapeno, the cumin, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, the red onion. Squeeze the lime juice over liberally. Just before serving, toss with fresh chopped cilantro.
