Last night I used the first bit of fresh cilantro from my kitchen garden!! I was totally inspired by my friend Kim after reading her post about herbs! I'd never thought about using it in guacamole! YUMMO!! This recipe is really good...as I'm not a HUGE fan of guac but this is so smooth and spicy and wonderful. I
did didn't eat all of it myself...my husband ate a bit. ;-) I cut the recipe in half, so there wouldn't be leftovers...and I could make more fresh today!!
1 ripe tomato
2-3 small ripe avocados
1/4-1 finely chopped onion (per taste)
pinch of ground cumin
pinch of chili powder
1/4-1 fresh green jalapeno
1 T. finely chopped cilantro
salt (only if using as a sauce, if using as dip with tortilla chips don't add)
Smush the avocado with the lime juice, then stir in the other ingredients. ENJOY!!
This meal is a PERFECT way to use up leftover taco ingredients. I always throw the leftover taco meat in the freezer for this quick meal later. A few organic blue corn tortilla chips, taco meat, shredded cheddar, fresh lettuce from my brother and sister in law's CSA, tomatoes and red onion....with a side of YUMMO guacamole and salsa!!! Can't wait til my tomatoes are ready...and I coerce the BEST SALSA RECIPE EVER out of my brother. ;-)
