Recipe: Chunky Guacamole

Louisiana food has long been influcenced by our immigrants. When Asian and Mexican restaurants began appearing about 20 years ago Louisianians were quick to support them - especially when the food was declared as awesome! :)

Looking for a simple guacamole recipe you can make up fresh without resorting to the grocery store deli section and preservatives? Look no further as here is a basic and simple recipe to pair up with your favorite tortilla chips on the weekend!



Chunky Guacamole

Serves 6.


Ingredients:



4 ripe avocados

¼ cup fresh lime juice

¼ cup chopped red onion

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

Salt and pepper to taste


Directions:


Cut
the avocados in half by running a paring knife around them.

Use a teaspoon to scoop the pit out of each one.

Now run the spoon between the flesh and the skin. Place the avocado flesh into the mixing bowl.

Coarsely mash the avocado with a dinner fork. Add in the lime juice.

Add in onions, garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. If you need to hold the guacamole for a few hours, try placing a layer of sour cream over the top, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Usually, it won’t turn brown this way.
