Guacamole

Guacamole is one of my favorite appetizers, and my husband is usually the one who makes it. It’s flavorful, clean, and healthy, but we eat it because we love it. His recipe is simple, but simple is good! He has converted many non-avocado lovers with this recipe.

The trick is to a good guacamole is leave large chunks of avocado; don’t mash them thoroughly and having a perfect balance of lime juice, red onion and salt is essential. If you like it hot, you can certainly add some diced jalapeño, some people also like to add diced tomato which is fine, but we like it just like this!

I posted this recipe a while back, but the photos needed some updating so I figured I’d re-post in time for the Superbowl.

Avocados may be high in fat, but they have the good essential healthy fats which we should consume every day. They are also high in fiber, rich in vitamin B, E and K and have 60 percent more potassium than bananas. I love avocado so much I created an entire Avocado Obsessed Pinterest board[1] in their honor. 

Guacamole is great with baked tortilla chips, lentil chips, baked plantain chips[2], chicken fajitas[3], or even on a wrap in place of mayonnaise. Sometimes we even make guacamole turkey burgers, I’ll have to share the recipe when the weather warms up.

Breakfast Tostada with Guacamole, Black Beans, and Poached Egg

Breakfast Tostada with Guacamole, Black Beans, and Poached Egg

by Pam on October 3, 2012

All of my favorite ingredients in one dish!  I had leftover taco fixings in the refrigerator so I decided to use them to make a tostada for breakfast.  I topped a crispy corn tortilla shell with homemade guacamole[1], black beans, tomatoes, cotija cheese, poached egg, and green onions.  I served these tostadas with homemade salsa[2] for a perfectly delicious breakfast.  My husband and I loved these tostadas and gobbled them up in seconds.

Heat a skillet that has been coated with cooking spray over medium heat then place the corn tortillas in it.  Cook the tortillas for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy.

While the tortillas are cooking, prepare the poached eggs.  Add water to a pan, filling it two thirds full; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Coat two poaching cups (or custard cups) with cooking spray then place in the water. Break the eggs into each cup then cover the pan with a lid and cook for 4-6 minutes or until the whites are firm but the yolk is soft.

Layer the crisp tortilla with guacamole[3], warmed black beans, diced tomato, and cotija cheese.  Place the poached egg on top then sprinkle with green onions and season with salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Serve immediately with a side of fresh salsa[4].  Enjoy.
