Posts Tagged ‘Guacamole’

Hey everyone. I haven’t posted anything on this blog in ages. Some people fans have asked why. I guess I’ve been devoting more time to my photography blog. Anyway, I’ve been inspired by my blog friend Greg Bardsley (a famous writer) – for some months now – and I’ve been begging him for his famous guacamole recipe but he’s has staunchly rejected my request. He has though, said he would divulge this treasure at the end of “guacamole season” (I didn’t know there was a season). I wanted guacamole, so I searched for a recipe, but modified it and below are the instructions. It tasted great. My wife didn’t pass out or faint after tasting it – so I think it is OK to serve to someone outside of the family.

Today in Florida it was a bazillion degrees out as I tried to hit some golf balls at the Links at 434 . My son Mark is taking me out for 18 holes in Oviedo, FL tomorrow for Father’s Day (such a nice boy). I figured I better hit some balls, take some Advil and get ready for tomorrow’s round with the other “Dads” in the family.

Guac-a-mole

2 Avocados
Juice from 1 1/2 limes
2 Tbs diced shallot
1 clove garlic chopped fine
1 Tbs cilantro – chopped
3 large leaves of mint – chopped
drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
4 dashes of your favorite hot sauce

Slice open the avocados removing the pit and scoop out the green flesh into a glass mixing bowl. Juice the limes and add to the avocados and toss with a fork to prevent the avocados from turning brown/black.

Add the rest of the ingredients folding it all together – garnish with lime and mint if desired – and refrigerate until you are ready to use it.

This guac tasted lim-ee  but I liked it. Back off on the lime if needed. But its tasted pretty darn good.

So, Mr Bardsley, am I getting close?????

Best wishes all.
