This is the time of year that everyone starts feeling those winter doldrums. Even with the non-existent winter like the one we have had this year, I am itching to go somewhere warm. And I am in luck. In a few days I leave for the sunny, beautiful beaches of Mexico. That’s right, soon I will be lolling on a beach chair, pina colada in hand watching the gentle waves of the Atlantic roll over the white beaches of Playa del Carmen. Don’t worry though, I will be thinking of you as I drink my cerveza and munch on some guacamole.
And for those of you that are not as lucky as I and stuck here in the city while I am suntanning at the beach, try this easy guacamole recipe and sip a corona while you do.
2 ripe avocados, skinned and pitted
1 plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
salt to taste
Blue Corn tortilla chips
Place avocados in medium size bowl and mash with a fork. Add all remaining ingredients except salt and gently mix them together. Add salt to taste. Spoon into a bowl and serve with blue tortilla chips.
