I first fell in love with guacamole when I lived in Bogotá, Colombia. There was a restaurant just down the street from my apartment called Aqui en Santa Fe, a small place with a cute red door. Their specialty was arepas, and I would order the aguacate arepa with queso mounded on top. It was heaven! I’ve been hooked on guacamole ever since, and I based my recipe on the guacamoles that I enjoyed in Colombia (which are not spicy like their Tex Mex cousins). This one is chunky, with a good lime flavor.
- 2 Haas avocados
- 1 lime, zested and juiced
- handful of cilantro leaves, snipped from the stem
- 2 green onions, finely sliced (green part only)
- Cut open the avocados and remove the pits. Cut into chunks and scoop out the meat. Put in a medium bowl. Squeeze lime juice over the chunks and add cilantro and green onions. Stir with a fork, leaving some chunks of avocado. Serve with tortilla chips or on arepas or pita.
