While guacamole isn’t a meal in and of itself, it could be with the right chips to dip into it. Because of that, I’m including it in the Homemade Meal Project. Plus it’s one of those foods that’s easy to just buy off the shelf but not much harder to make at home. The result of a homemade guacamole recipe are always delicious.
1 large ripe avocado (ripe avocado give when you lightly squeeze them)
1/4 cup of salsa
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
dash ground chipotle
Cut avocado in half, lengthwise and twist to separate halves. Using a spoon separate the avocado’s fruit from the peel discarding the pit. Place in medium bowl. Add lime juice, garlic powder, chipotle and salt. Mash the ingredients together using a fork or spoon, mixing well.
To store, cover guacamole with plastic wrap making sure that the plastic makes contact with the guacamole in order to prevent browning.
Now wasn’t that easy?
My guacamole took on a brownish tinge right away because of the salsa. To avoid this try adding fresh tomato, onion and jalapeño instead of salsa.
Now, I mentioned that guacamole isn’t a meal all by its lonesome but don’t worry, we didn’t eat this on its own. Stay tuned for the very first guest post on Pomelo Sunshine to hear what we had for dinner tonight.
