May 5, 2020
Antojitos Guacamole

I’m loving all of the #UniversalAtHome creations you’ve been whipping up in your kitchens. Let’s kick it up a notch and keep the good spirits flowing with a couple of yummy recipes from Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food in Universal CityWalk to spice up your Cinco de Mayo.

You can’t beat tableside guac and chips. Especially when paired with a delicious margarita (if you’re old enough to indulge in an adult beverage, of course!). Blast the mariachi music, throw those chips in a bowl, and get that salt shaker ready. It’s time to fiesta!

Guacamole Recipe

Serves: 1 bowl of guacamole

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 teaspoon of jalapeños (diced)
  • 1 teaspoon of tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of red onions (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon olives (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon of lime juice
  • A drizzle of olive oil

Directions:

  1. First, let’s get fancy and get a bunch of little bowls and divide all the ingredients up into them. Then, let’s get mixing!
  2. Put the jalapeños in a large bowl (if you don’t like spiciness, skip this step.)
  3. Carefully cut the avocado in half and discard the pit by inserting the blade into the seed using a quick and gentle cutting movement, then twist and remove. Gently scoop the avocado with a spoon and place in a bowl.
  4. Add the red onion, tomatoes, cilantro, salt, and olives to the bowl.
  5. Add a drizzle of olive oil.
  6. Mash and mix all the ingredients together using the back of a large spoon or fork, then mix in the lime juice.
  7. Shape it into a perfect little guac mountain and garnish with extra cilantro or tomatoes.
  8. Get your favorite chips and get your guac on!
