Guacamole with a twist!

May 24th, 2012

Hard to believe but I am here again, in less than a week! I finished one more class a couple weeks ago and things are more relaxed know. With kids at home and one more road trip on the way, I know it is not going to last forever tough.

So, let me talk about guacamole while I can!! To start, I have to say every time I think about guacamole I think about this.

I can totally picture myself on the other side of Tiffany’s description, making faces for the idea of eating avocado mixed with salt, onions, tomatoes…. We used to have an avocado tree in the backyard and that was almost exclusively for smoothies.

We would share the excess with family and neighbors of course.  But I doubt it had been used in a different way.

Still, avocado with lemon and honey is the most powerful snack in my house but things have changed, oh how things have changed… if I have more than one avocado one the fridge, it is enough excuse to make guacamole instead.

The best thing about guacamole is it is a totally forgiving recipe, you can adjust the ingredients according to your taste and it will hardly go wrong. I love to play with the classic guacamole too, adding not so conventional ingredients. This recipe, for example, is a little twist on the classic, Asian Mexican flavor if I can say that.




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

2. Using a fork, mash the avocado. Add all the ingredients and mix well.

I particularly don’t use chili peppers but if you like a little hit, go for it.

Serve immediately with warm pita bread and be prepared to surprise everyone!

    Mmm I love guacamole! So fresh and simple — the only drawback is I always tend to eat too much of it ;).

    Oh my, the pictures get me everytime. But that is nothing new. What IS new is seseme seeds and seseme oil in guac… but I can totally taste it in my head… and it tastes GOOD! Love this! (And I love that you think of my avocado story whenever you think of guac 🙂 )
