Not Your Average Guacamole


How to re-create this recipe:


(Serves 4-6)

  • 2 Ripe Avocados 
  • 1 Small white onion
  • 2 garlic cloves 
  • 1 small Jalapeño 
  • 4 small Kumato Tomatoes 
  • 2 Tbsp’s of freshly chopped Cilantro leaves
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 Tsp’s of “Mesa Rosa Chipotle” spice
  • Salt to taste 
  • Leftover Hard Taco Shells (optional)

Putting it together:

  1. Halve your Avocados and score the flesh. With a spoon, core out the flesh into a medium sized bowl. Using a fork, mash the Avocados until the texture is smooth and creamy. 
  2. Small dice your tomatoes and white onion. Add that to the bowl. Finely mince your garlic cloves and Jalapeño (making sure to remove the seeds) and add that to the bowl as well. 
  3. Juice 1 lemon into the bowl, add your Chipotle spice, Cilantro Leaves and salt to taste. Mix all the ingredients together well. 
  4. Serve with regular Guacamole/Salsa chips or use leftover hard taco shells. 

Nourishment for your body: Avocados are renowned to provide your body with healthy fats. They are loaded with vitamins such as Vitamins K, C, E, B vitamins, folate and potassium. They do not contain sodium, cholesterol and are low in saturated fat and high in fiber. 

Tips when cooking: For the spice in this Guacamole, you can use any Chipotle spice blend you can find. Anything like a Southwestern smoky spice blend will go well. The “Mesa Rosa ” spice is a mixture of Chipotle pepper, cumin, coriander, salt and garlic. If you prefer a more intense spicy flavor, you can add the seeds from your Jalapeño because the seeds are where the heat is retained. Whenever we have taco night at my home, I almost always have leftover hard taco shells that are stored in my pantry and get stale before the next Taco night roles around. Instead of using regular chips, you can tear off triangular shaped “chips” from your leftover hard Taco shells and use those.  For a truly unique way to use Avocados in a dessert, check out this recipe by Giada De Laurentiis…
