I have become a recent guacamole convert.
You have probably already guessed but it is definitely a texture issue for me.
With all my fajita experimenting lately I have tried out a few guacamole recipes too and have discovered that fresh guacamole is quite nice. It is also easy to make. The hardest part seems to be finding the avocados that are just right – not too hard and hot too soft.
Guacamole doesn’t have too many ingredients but fresh ingredients are important – avocado, tomato, lime juice etc.
The other great thing about guacamole is that it’s good for you – avocados are good for your heart, they help fight cancer, and prevent strokes.
I love foods that make me feel healthy while I’m eating it!
I like my guacamole a little chunky so I just smash up the ripe avocados with a fork and then add in everything else. I also like to refrigerate it for at least an hour so it is cold.
