Guacamole

Simply the Best

Guacamole myfavouritepastime.com_1585My schedule for today says “post” but I’ve had such a long and arduous day, I hardly want to do any posting. Because everything must be done as per schedule (remember those New year Resolutions we made for 2014?). I’ll gladly look for the shortest recipe in my collection, which happens to be “Guacamole”. Its nothing complicated. It’s simple to make, is ready in minutes and a great pleasure to eat. There are thousands of Guacamole recipes out there in the net but this is the one I love. If you ever try to make it, please try and use freshly roasted and crushed cumin seeds. The taste and smell is so different from the ground cumin that has been idling on the shelf for months. I call this a “prepare and taste” recipe. The quantities of ingredients are given but at the end you must taste and adjust to suit your palate. Some of us love lots of lime juice, others prefer hot chilli and others are on a salt free or limited salt diet. Kindly adjust, to suit your palate. I made a resolution to get at least 7 hours of sleep so my dear friends time to visit dreamland. I wish you a good night or a good morning or a good day.

Guacamole myfavouritepastime.com_1584LOL, I wrote this post last night, went to the dashboard and got a shock with the new developments. My computer skills are lopsided, and I wasn’t in the mood of discovering new things at midnight so I shut down and went to sleep. Here I am one day later…frustrated. Why didn’t 1ever study computing skills 101?

  • Ingredients 
  • 3 small avocados (about 600g)
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 60ml (¼ cup) sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon Tabasco sauce or finely chopped chillies or chilli flakes
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin (I used freshly roasted and crushed seeds)
  • 2 medium tomatoes peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small (about 50g) red Spanish onion finely chopped
  • Salt to taste

Guacamole myfavouritepastime.com_0841Please always remember to assemble all ingredients before you start

Guacamole myfavouritepastime.com_0846Mash avocados roughly with a fork (do not over mash). Stir in remaining ingredients. Makes sure it has a little texture. Taste and adjust seasoning to suit your palate.

Guacamole myfavouritepastime.com_0850Oh yes when I started eating, I couldn’t stop. I had a stomach ache by the end of the day…LOL

    1. Ha ha I ate so much Guac the day I made it. I thought it was going to grow in my stomach….I love Guac too. Have a lovely weekend!

  1. We are an avid guacamole eating family! I have a lazy way to make it (just combine a fave salsa into some mashed avocados) and one closer to your recipe, but I’ve never added sour cream…hmm, certainly looks good. Same thing happens to me, I just keep on eating it!!

    1. Oh yes. It’s the kind of thing you eat and eat without stopping. The addition of sour cream makes it even more addictive. Have a lovely weekend!

      I only eat avocados when they’ve been fully dressed like this. I have also had avocado smoothie, very nice and tasty. I’m dozing and it’s early morning. Have a wonderful day!

        1. In sandwich great, in smoothie awesome, but we can’t always love everything. I completely understand. Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Yummy – gotta go PIN IT… I’m ‘away’ at the moment…. so I haven’t had time to check out the ‘new dashboard’. I’m not looking forward to learning ‘new ways’ but I put my trust in Word Press, although I don’t have that same level of trust for Facebook !

    1. Hi Cecile,
      Thanks for pinning, in advance. I just have hopeless computer skills and I think I was really just tired because the next morning it worked very fine. Enjoy whatever you’re doing!

  3. I had to laugh at your reaction to the plan “to post.” I can relate so completely–sometimes I just think, “what can I say, and fast, so I can post to my blog and cross this off my list?” But you did good! I passed this along to my husband–you got his attention!

    1. Thanks for passing it on to your husband and getting his attention. Do your realize as soon as you post, you have to start thinking about the next one. It’s a never ending process…it goes on and on and on…have a lovely weekend!

      1. I think I went with sushi, but only because of the avocado in the rolls, which was delicious 🙂
        Last night, however, I did mash up some avocados and refried beans, which was also delicious.
        I think it’s hard to go wrong with avocado, as long as it hasn’t reached that icky brown smushy stage yet.

        1. Oh yes they are best eaten while still olive green and fresh. I don’t remember when I last ate sushi…I should plan to go out for sushi as soon as the weather improves. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. This is perfect! I have two kilograms of avocado in my kitchen! 😀
    They are small avocados growing in the mountainous area. We don’t see them much lately.

  5. Oh how I love guacamole! I could make a meal out of it. I love that you left some texture of the avocado left. Some throw it in a blender. I much prefer some chunks of that wonderful avocado 🙂
