2 of my 3 new roommates just graduated from culinary school a year ago. One of them taught me a great trick to making guacamole. She uses a whisk and jabs at the avacado! It's not chunky at all (like I get with a fork) it's really kind of silky and bumpy... Doesn't that sound yummy?



Oh, and by the way, I looooooove me some guacamole!

qetta 06-17-2004 02:45 PM

Mmm...guacamole! My sister-in-law makes the absolute best guacamole - and it's the sole reason my husband can convince me to ever, ever go visit them in Texas. (Texas scares me.)



And dang, 2 roommates in culinary school? Lucky duck! (and yes, I know it's a penguin and not a duck, but close enough!)



Did your roommate share her guacamole recipe with you, or just her technique?

NDvegan85 06-17-2004 04:38 PM

Mmmm... someone (aka me) just bought 6 avacados at the grocery...

bluegrrrl79 06-17-2004 05:22 PM

I wish avacados weren't so expensive!

GhostUser 06-17-2004 07:07 PM

I am lazy, I buy the bulk stuff from Sam's. It is really good.

How else do you guys eat it besides with tortilla chips and with mexican food?

Need ideas as I have a lot of it. I love it on quesadillas.

I have had guac with carrots or with crackers before.. But I prefer it in tacos and burritos, or chips. There's just no other way for me.



I looove avOcados....

how much do they run in your area? they're 4 for a buck here this week.

tearhsong2 06-17-2004 08:52 PM

I like chunky guac. I make mine sort of salsa-like with jalapenos, tomatoes, and onions. Lots of lime juice. Avocados are so nummy.



Of course, a smoother guac wouldn't be bad, though. So long as it's avocados in it and none of those low-fat "guacamoles" made from broccoli or asparagus. I'm sure they might be good, but if I want guac, I want me some avocado.

It's good as a sandwich base in place of the usual hummus, just add assorted veggies.



It's also good on baked potatoes. I make potato taquitos sometimes, but if I'm in the mood from some and don't want all the grease a baked potato with guacamole and salsa is a good alternative.



Last time I was in Baja I went to the Commerical Mexicana (huge grocery store) and they had like 4 kilos of avocados for the about 80 cents and they were all perfectly ripe. I almost wept, you can't transport fruit or veg over the border. But I bought two and some fresh bolillos (hard rolls) and made the best damn sandwich I've ever eaten out in the parking lot.

Guacamole made from broccholi or aspearagus? That's just nasty.... and wrong on so many levels.



I like a nice, chunky guacamole with lime juice (not lemon, lemon makes it taste funny), garlic, a tad of salt and a bit of pepper.



I love avocados, too....

Ugh!! I've never heard of such a thing, nor do I ever want to hear of it again!

Please tell me you made this up! Nobody would really create such a travesty, would they?



*feels a wave of despair crashing over her*

qetta 06-18-2004 02:37 PM

I've seen "broccomole" in the stores.

Wow that's cheap, here they're like $1.50 each.

tearhsong2 06-18-2004 03:36 PM

Nope, I didn't make this up. Terrible, I know.

I've heard of the broccoli "guacamole" before, but can't find a recipe for it.

Galatea 06-18-2004 08:03 PM

They're really expensive here too, as well as crappy and small. The avocadoes in Brazil were as big as my head and CHEAP!

rainbowmoon 06-18-2004 08:21 PM

Yeah, the last time I was at the local grocery avocados were 1.89 each. Take me to Brazil!

SystmDwnGrl2 06-18-2004 08:51 PM

avocados oh I love them soooo much... I love them in burritos and mmmmmm I love guac... I put them on veggieburgers and sandwiches...in salads...luckily they don't seem to bother me... I just have to make sure I don't eat too much in one day.

GhostUser 06-18-2004 10:05 PM

Is this it perhaps?

pinkpunch 06-19-2004 02:17 AM

I only just started liking guacamole recently, still haven't tried making it myself though.



I've seen recipes for guacamole made of green peas and beans, but never broccoli, none sound very appealing!

PassThePickles 06-19-2004 03:30 AM

I make mine with a potato masher. Perfect consistency for me!

*~*Datura*~* 06-19-2004 11:18 AM

I would love to find a jalapeno free guacamole where I live. I would make my own, but I can never find Advocados in my Stop & Shop!!! Does any one know of a specific brand that's not spicy?

Artichoke47 06-19-2004 06:11 PM

I like my guacamole a little bit chunky, too, so I can see the yellow and green color contrast, along with red from my tomatoes!

GhostUser 06-20-2004 01:05 AM

chunky guac is the best. Besides pico de gallo, guacmole is my fave dip.

sam alshebany 09-13-2013 07:15 AM

sam alshebany 10-02-2013 04:32 PM
