Holy Guacamole!

Guacamole is a wonderful sauce made from avocados and usually combined with white onion, serrano peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, and sea salt.  Guacamole originated in an Aztec village in what now is Mexico City.  The key to this sauce is the avocado which can only be grown in tropical or subtropical climates.  It generally grows from the west coast of the United States to the south as far as Chile.  This great nutritious and delicious fruit was unknown to the rest of the world until the Spanish conquered Mexico in 1519.  Now it has become very popular in Spain and other countries all around the world.  In the United States 50 million pounds of guacamole is consumed on Super bowl Sunday and it is generally served with tortilla chips but in Mexico it is served inside a fresh, warm, handmade corn tortilla.

Today I will be sharing my recipe and hope you try it.

Ingredients

3 large Hass avocados

1/3 cup of finely chopped tomatoes

3 tablespoons of chopped green onions

3 diced serrano peppers

3 rounded tablespoons of cilantro

½ teaspoon of sea salt

Use a molcajete or a plastic bowl to prepare.  Mix all ingredients and stir to desired texture, add a small amount of water if you don’t like it too thick.

Enjoy!
