- 2 ripe avocados (if they are hard, ripen by
placing in a paper bag with a banana at room temperature for a couple of days -
you may have to sacrifice the banana)
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped red
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
tbsp (30 ml) fresh lime juice
- 4 tbsp (60 ml) fresh cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Peel the avocados, cut in half and remove the
pit. Mash the avocados in a bowl and add the other ingredients, mixing well.
Chill until ready to serve. (Any leftover actually freezes quite well.)
Guacamole is a nice with nachos, quesadillas or as a dip with tortilla chips.
