Holy Guacamole

Guacamole

Avocados are amazing. In my house, we all love them. I can’t keep up with buying them.  They are expensive! I complain because I find my husband’s avocado pits all over in cups because he has been trying to grow an avocado tree for years. But I wish he’d grow one already. It would save us some money!

When my 10 year old gets home from school he usually asks for guacamole and chips.  That’s when I smash an avocado, drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  But this recipe I bring out on special occasions. It’s really tastes amazing! I can’t let my family know I’m making it because they eat it up with a spoon before I even put it on the table.

TIPS:  Once you see your avocados getting too ripe, put them in the fridge.  It will keep them fresh for a long time! 

Once you make the guacamole keep the pits that you’ve taken out and put them in the bowl of guac to keep it fresh until ready to eat!  

Ingredients

  • 6 Haas Avocados
  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 of an onion minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced(If you like it mild just use half)
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro(Some people don’t like the taste of cilantro.  So you can skip it or use less)
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced

Directions

  1. Scoop out the insides of the avocados and place them in a medium bowl.
  2. Squeeze lime over avocados.  Toss to coat.
  3. Mash to make it smooth.
  4. Add salt, cumin and cayenne.  Mash again.
  5. Fold in the onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro and garlic.
  6. Put the avocado pits back in to keep it fresh until ready to serve.

Enjoy!

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
