Start Simple, Go Green

January 31, 2010

My wife and I sing a song when we start to get hungry while kayaking or hiking.  It goes, “Guacamole, guacamole, and flax seed chips.”  The vision of this snack is what helps us make it to the end…

Guacamole

And it’s a consistent crowd pleaser.  You may think it’s ridiculously easy.  It is.

All you need are avocados, limes, and salt.  That’s it.  Ready to use avocados give slightly when squeezed and will give you a wonderfully creamy texture.

Cut the avocado in half, remove pit, and scoop the flesh into a bowl.

Add fresh lime juice – I use about 3/4 of a lime for two medium avocados.  Mash with any mashing tool you want – fork, spoon, fingers – I have a cool little avocado masher.

Work it to the consistency you like – leave chunks or not, it’s up to you.

Add salt to taste.  Pour, mix, taste, repeat.

Remember that you CAN’T remove salt so start light and add more as necessary.

This recipe is so simple, you won’t believe it.  And it beats store-bought guac with two chips tied behind it’s back.  Some people like to add garlic, chopped onions, or chopped tomato.

Feel free but I think simple is better.
