No sooner do I tell you I probably won't be posting anything new until the new year, I went ahead and made us a little mid-afternoon snack of Guacamole. Mmm. I gotta tell you, I used to fear Guac., but it's really starting to grow on me. And it's very easy to make, give it a shot. Good Fat!!!
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
1/4 small white onion, finely chopped*
Small handful of cilantro, rinsed and chopped
1 lime, juiced
* I like to rinse my onions in cold water to get some of the strong acid/sulfuric compounds to go away...otherwise, they come back to visit me about an hour later.
Halve the avacados lengthwise and remove and discard the pits. Scoop out the pulp into a medium bowl and coarsely mash with a fork. Add the tomatoes, chiles, onions and cilantro. Add the lime juice to taste and season with salt. Mix until just combined.
From Wikipedia: The fruit has a markedly higher fat content than most other fruits, mostly monounsaturated fat. A whole medium avocado contains approximately 25% of the United States FDA's recommended daily amount of saturated fat. Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are also rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E, vitamin K, and folate.
