Chic Guacamole


You may be saying, "Lauren, 'chic' is not the first word that comes to my mind when I think of guacamole." I understand, it's weird. But let's think of it in a fashion sense, shall we?

What's the chicest thing you can think of when it comes to fashion? What is timeless? My first thought is the little black dress. Simple, classic and does not draw attention to itself but to the one wearing it. (I'm not implying you wear this guacamole, although, you may in your ravenous state and utter euphoria, end up with a schmear here or there.)

When I think "chic" I also think, uncluttered.

I hate cluttered guacamole. The saying, "less is more" is definitely appropriate here, as it is with fashion. I'm against all forms of tomatoes in my guac and I am abhorred by garlic (some my be gasping at this moment), I don't want corn or beans or cilantro or mayo (!), but here is why.

I want to taste the avocado. I've just paid $4 for 2 organic avocados (and that was on sale!). I don't want to taste garlic or have a seedy, watery tomato fighting with my creamy, smooth super-food.

So I have stripped down what I usually end up getting if I were to order guacamole in a restaurant and have created for you a simple, easy guacamole that will not only cut back on buying a butt-load of ingredients but will let you taste what nature intended.


Chic Guacamole

2 perfectly-ripe, organic avocados
1/2 green onion, minced
1/2 jalapeno, minced
Juice of 1/2 -3/4 fresh lime
Salt

Mash it all together. Adjust for salt and spice. Go crazy on the jalapenos or use whatever pepper is your favorite. And if you want to make it even simpler, cut out the onions and peppers and simply use salt and lime. Such a summery treat!




Love ya, Foodies!

  3. you make some very valid points here sister, I have always used chunky things in my guac, but it's nice to have a smooth creamy avocado whip like this for a change...very chic indeed :)

  5. I love the color. It seems even greener than green if that's possible.

  10. My hubby would luuuuuuuv that....he absolutely hates tomatoes. Sometimes you just have to let great ingredients shine. Right? That's just what you did here.
    Have a great weekend girl.

  11. This is what chic food is meant to be, simple, elegant and totally flavorful! Like you, I can't stand to have too many watery ingredients in my creamy guacamole either.
