Avocado. Not only is it beautiful to look at (one of my favorite colors in the entire food world) it’s a great base for so many recipe ideas.
Guacamole. It’s always the star of the party, the first dish to get scraped clean with a tortilla chip. Make this recipe your family favorite this summer. It’s going to be on our table a lot. Including this 4th of July weekend.
4 medium avocados
1 tbsp. key lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Pinch of garlic powder
Mash 2 of the avocados pretty well in a medium bowl, leaving 2 avocados more “chunky.” I like a bit of texture in my guac. Then add the other ingredients together and stir til combined and cover for up to 1 hour before serving. Serve with your favorite chips…. Yum! This recipe is simple and fresh with avocado as it’s star ingredient.
You can watch my guac off segment (promise it’s a thing) from Studio 5 last week.
