Superbowl Countdown #3



Superbowl Countdown #3


Just thought I'd jump on the ban wagon, and participate in some fun Superbowl Mania.

Recipe:

Guacamole:

Ingredients

2 ripe avocados
½ red onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
1-2 serrano chiles, stems and seeds removed, minced
2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lime or lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
A dash of freshly grated black pepper
1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped


Method

1 Cut avocados in half. Remove seed. Scoop out avocado from the peel, put in a mixing bowl.

2 Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add the chopped onion, cilantro, lime or lemon, salt and pepper and mash some more. Chili peppers vary individually in their hotness. So, start with a half of one chili pepper and add to the guacamole to your desired degree of hotness. Be careful handling the peppers; wash your hands thoroughly after handling and do not touch your eyes or the area near your eyes with your hands for several hours.

3Refrigerate until ready.

****Keep the tomatoes separate until ready to serve.
****Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent oxidation from the air reaching it.
****Many times I'll add sour cream for an extra creamy Guac...
