Best Guacamole Recipe Ever!
When I flew out to Denver, Colorado this winter to speak at TEDx, I stayed at Dafna (See photo with me) and Michael Jenet’s home. They are both close friends, amazing people, and together run the Journey Institute which is a non-profit organization bent on helping people make a difference in the world. Please go get inspired at their site. While I was there, Michael (shown above) whipped up some of his astoundingly good guacamole. BEST RECIPE EVER. I ate most of the bowl myself.
As you all know, avocados are one of my favorite things to eat in the world, so being spoiled rotten as a house guest with avocado love was perfection – I sipped fizzy gin cocktails and snarfed guacamole most of the evening with a giant smile on my face. Thanks Michael; you rawked the guac. Below is the recipe which is super-easy and inexpensive to make — you can grow the vegetables that go along with the avocado organically in your home garden. Enjoy!
HOW TO MAKE GUACAMOLE A LA MICHAEL
- 2 or 3 ripe avocados, mashed
- 1 handful of cilantro, chopped fine
- 1 small onion, sliced extra thin
- juice from 1/2 a lime
- 1 jalapeno, diced into tiny pieces
- 1 small tomato, diced
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together. Serve with chips or on it’s own as a salad. Delicious!
Yummy!! I’m salvating as I write this as avocado is my favourite too Shawna. A tad expensve here in Ireland in comparison to USA I should think as we import. We obviously don’t grow it because as you might recall we don’t get a hell of a lot of sunshine in Ireland Shawna!!
It is so good to know that a food I love is healthy for me. Will have to add cilantro and try it!
Huh no sour cream? I like to slice avocado and eat it that way so this sounds like a nice recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Love avocado! Have you tried it with walnut oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and fresh ground black pepper?
I’ve never tried it with walnut oil. I’ll have to do that soon.
