Simple Guacamole

I haven’t ever liked Guacamole too much, it was never on my list of “must haves”. But recently I was craving it.. and needed some!!

I know there are a million and one ways to make Guacamole just the way you like it, but this turns out fabulous every time I make it and takes less than 10 minutes, and is uber fresh and healthy!

Here are some benefits to avacados before I begin: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=5

Ingredients: 

3 Organic Avacados

1 freshly juiced Organic lemon

1 shallot roughly chopped

1 garlic clove finely chopped

Kosher salt

Fresh ground pepper

Paprika

How to:

Cut avacados in half take out the seed. Take a spoon and run along skin to dig out the meat. Dice and place in food processor.

Juice the lemon and pour into processor.

Chop Shallot

Chop Garlic – Add both to processor

Salt, Pepper, and Paprika to taste. ( I used about 1 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 tsp fresh pepper, and 1/8-1/4 tsp of paprika)

Here’s what mine looked like:

Sorry about that picture.. it’s horrid and I tried several times.. at least you get the idea!

Once in the processor, pulse at short intervals until well blended. ( If you do not have a processor, you can mash the avacado up with a fork really well.. I mean really well! And you’ll have to chop the shallot and garlic up to almost mincing them).

You can add anything you want to this… peppers, fresh tomato salad on top (diced tomato, onion and chopped cilantro)  would add some real flavor!! Yum!! But I like it simple, so this can be your base to let your imagination run wild or just make it as I have it here for a great snack.. or spread on a burger.. OH MY!

I like pairing this with the blue organic corn chips, they are amazing and have a much more robust flavor to them.

This yields about enough for 2, maybe 3 people, it goes in a flash  ( my husband devoured all of it within 5 minutes, I had like 3 bites) . Make more if needed!!

If you try this, tell me what you think!! This is a non-GMO, Organic solution to buying pre-made, frozen guacamole, or the pre-packaged spice mix to add to it.

Happy Eating!!
