Today is National Avocado Day!
Try this great recipe to make the perfect guacamole!
Guacamole is one party dip that is actually good for you, and it is easy to make at home. Hass avocados- with green skins that turn brown-black when ripe- are rich and creamy. They are filled with healthy fats, vitamin and fibers. The rest of the fresh ingredients in guacamole are filled with nutrients and few calories.
To test if avocado is ripe, give it a gentle squeeze. It should give slightly under the pressure. If hard, avocados will need two to three days to ripen on a countertop, so plan ahead if you do not have access to ripe ones. The other key ingredients for a flavorful guacamole is jalapeno, a spicy pepper that many people leave out. These bright green chilies have loads of healthy nutrients, including high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants, and they add a flavor punch. To make a mild guacamole, remove the seeds and the membrane (the white part that attaches the seeds to the flesh) before you mince the jalapeno. For a spicy version, leave the seeds in.
Perfect Guacamole
· 3 ripe Hass avocados
· ¼ cup red onion, minced
· ¼ cup cilantro, minced
· Juice of 1 lime
· ½ teaspoon salt
· 1 jalapeno, minced
