Jeff's Almost-Instant Guacamole

Category: Appetizers and Dips

Suitable for a: vegan diet

Ingredients:

------------------------------------------------------

1 normal size ripe avocado

1 Roma or egg tomato, diced

1/4 cup white or red onion, finely minced

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon prepared hot salsa (to taste)

Instructions:

------------------------------------------------------

This is my favorite guacamole because it fast, easy, and uses ingredients I always have on hand. The cumin adds a surprising dimension.

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Cut into the flesh into a grid pattern to create cubes. Use a spoon to scoop the cubes into a large bowl. Dump in the onion, tomato, lemon juice, cumin, sea salt, and salsa. Take a fork and mash and stir until the guacamole reaches your desired level of chunkiness. I like it smooth, but still with small avocado chunks.

Serve with your favorite quality corn tortilla chips. I recommend "Que Pasa" organic unsalted.

Additional comments:

------------------------------------------------------

- It is important not to 'over onion' your guacamole, so be conservative. I usually use a single onion slice.

- You don't have to use a Roma tomato, but I find that it is the perfect size for a single avocado.

I made my first guacamole yesterday, and I find that when I put in the http://www.vitamix.com I have to add water to it to get it to move around so it will puree it all. The water worked, and the results were delicious. Jeff said not be crazy over the onion, I agree, next time, I am going to omit it and increase the garlic.(of course, to each his own). I never thought to use Cumin tho.

I just started this vegetarian way of life April/07, and I think that I will like it. The most daunting thing about this whole concept is snack ideas.

Thanks Jeff for this recipe.
