What?! A post about food? What do guacamole and wood working have in common? Admittedly, not much at all, but we’ve all gotta eat and this is a tasty treat that’s pretty good for you too!
Without realizing that it was the eve of Cinco de Mayo I had a craving for guacamole so while at the grocery store, my wife and I picked up the essentials.
- 4 hass avocados
- 2 limes
- 1/4 yellow onion
- 1 jalapeno (I wanted my lady to be able to eat some, so only 1 pepper)
- 1 medium tomato
- 1 clove of garlic (1/2 tsp minced garlic)
- salt to taste
On to Jose Jalapeno! We’re gonna turn his butt into guacamole! First a quick death, decapitation! Then slice down the middle and core out the insides. A bit gruesome huh?
If you can’t tell, I like lime. Use less if you’re not a big lime fan. I wouldn’t cut it out all together though, as the avocado meat absorbs and diminishes the lime’s flavor. Also, the citrus from the lime helps the guacamole keep a bit longer. Anyways, roll the limes against the counter pressing firmly down on them. This breaks up the lime and makes juicing the fruit quicker. If you have a citrus juicer, use it. If not, stick a fork into the lime and twist until your efforts are futile. Also, don’t stab yourself. It will sting more than normal with lime juice all over your hand! Just a friendly heads up.
