How To Create The Guacamole From Antojitos
Whenever I get together with family and friends, we always love to have a small bite to eat while we talk, laugh and tell stories. For times like those, there are few things as delicious and fun to prepare as fresh guacamole.
This versatile avocado dish is easy to make and every different country has their own version of this famous Mexican creation. I love mine with a lot of lime juice and tomatoes. Some like it creamy, others more chunky. The best part is, it’s easy to make it your own.
Last week, you got to meet Chef Hector from Antojitos Authentic Mexican Grill as we kicked off our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This week, we’re happy to share how he puts his own spin on one of our favorite uses of the avocado.
1 Ripe Avocado
1 tsp of Jalapeños (diced)
1 tsp of Tomatoes (chopped)
1 tsp of Red Onions (chopped)
1 tsp of Garlic (finely chopped)
1 tsp of Olives (finely chopped)
1 tsp of Kosher Salt
1 tsp of Cilantro
1 tsp of Lime juice
A Drizzle of Olive Oil
First, put the jalapeños in a large mixing bowl (if you don’t want your guacamole to be spicy, skip this step!)
Carefully cut open the avocado and discard of 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 the bowl.
Then add the red onion, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, salt and olives to the bowl.
Add a drizzle of olive oil.
Mash and mix all of the ingredients together to fully combine using the back of a large spoon or fork, then mix in the lime juice.
Plate and enjoy![amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12]
