Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -- -- --
1/2 Small Onion, very finely chopped
Fresh hot green chilies to taste about 2 chilies serranos or 1 chile jalapeno
- stemmed, seeded and very finely chopped
1 Medium Tomato, cored and very finely chopped --optional
1 Clove Garlic, peeled and very finely chopped --optional
10 Sprigs Cilantro, chopped -- optional
3 Medium Avocados
1/2 Lime, juiced -- optional
1. In a medium bowl, mix the finely chopped onion and chiles with the
optional tomato, garlic and cilantro.
2. Halve the avocados lengthwise by cutting from the stem to flower
ends, around the pits. Twist the avocado halves in opposite directions
to loosen the meat from the pits, then scoop out the pits and reserve.
Scrape the avocado pulp from the skins and add it to the bowl.
3. Using a spoon roughly mash the avocado while mixing in the other
ingredients, making a coarse, thick mass. Flavor with salt, then
enough lime juice to add a little zing, if you wish. Return the pits
to the guacamole and cover with a sheet of plastic pressed directly
onto the surface of the mixture. Set aside for a few minutes to let
the flavors blend.
Additional chopped onion and fresh cilantro, radish slices or roses,
and/or a little crumbled Mexican cheese (queso fresco) or other fresh
cheese like feta or farmer's cheese for garnish. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
