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.
Dip your chips in it, dollop it on tacos, or smear it on toast. No matter how you choose to enjoy it, this healthy guacamole will add loads of flavor to any meal.
- medium bowl
- 2 Haas avocados
- 1 lime (zested and juiced)
- ½ cup 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.
Sounds good. Now add a couple chopped serrano peppers, some chopped red onion, a little garlic, some ground pepper. Chill in fridge for a bit. Wow! thats my favorite.
