Since this is the first post of 2013 I thought I would dedicate it to one of my life’s loves. Avocado.
Avocados contain good fats, are high in fiber, have more potassium than my favorite fruit, the banana and are thought to lower cholesterol.
I love recipes where the main ingredient shines through with a little help from a few friends. I think it is safe to say that the fewer ingredients the better. Although I don’t always let this principle guide what I cook, I love it when it happens like it has in this recipe.
Here they are: avocado, lime, red onion, jalapeno and salt. That’s it!
Lots of guac recipes call for tomato, salsa, garlic and so on but i combined a few recipes I found and stuck with these 5.
This 5 Ingredient Guacamole recipe is simple and the ingredients are just what you need without too much fuss.
You just pit and peel the avocado.
In a large bowl you combine the avocado that you are about to mush up….
with red onion, jalapeno and lime juice. Mix his all together.
Sprinkle with salt and you are done!
I could eat this stuff with a spoon, but I won’t.
