Yesterday, one of the dishes we made for dinner was homemade guacamole.
Juliandra had invited us over last week for homemade guac, so we were going to return the favour. Unfortunately they were both busy with schoolwork, so they couldn’t make it over, but that’s okay, it’s more for us. Not gonna lie, though, I was a bit disappointed they couldn’t come not so we could socialize but so I could show our cooking off to them. Also because we don’t have tortilla chips, so we couldn’t eat them with the guac.
Did you know that there are lots of things you can do with guac other than using it as a dip for tortilla chips? For one thing, you can eat it with pasta, as a sauce. For another, you can use it to make sandwiches! Today’s lunch consisted of two pastrami and guacamole English muffin sandwiches (I made two because one English muffin is really small). I have a ton of bagels to eat right now due to the fill-a-bag Loblaws event, but the English muffins have been sitting in our fridge for a while now, so I figured I should eat them before they go bad. Below you will find a recipe for the guacamole used in said sandwich.
Recipe for Guacamole:
- Prep time: 7 minutes
- Cook time: 0 minutes
- Difficulty: Easy
- Servings: Depends on how much guac you like to eat, so I will arbitrarily say 4
- 5 Avocados, halved and pitted
- 1/2 White onion
- 2 Roma tomatoes
- 1 Lime
- Small sprig of cilantro
- Oliver oil to taste
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the avocados into small pieces and throw into a cereal bowl. Mash them as well as you can with a spoon, but don’t do a very good job of it because you’re lazy. That’s okay, you’ll just make chunky guacamole. Dice the onion and tomatoes and add them to the avocado. Try to dice them as finely as you can, but also don’t do a very good job of it so you end up with too-big pieces of onion but it’s okay. Cut the lime in half and juice it over your mixture. Make sure to yelp when it squirts out of control and you get juice all over you. Drizzle olive oil on top and add salt and pepper if you so desire (I didn’t). Mix thoroughly. Have a very difficult time mixing because the bowl you picked isn’t big enough. Add a small bit of cilantro and place neatly in the middle of your guac because it looks prettier that way and you want to take a nice picture.
Serve with pasta, in English muffin sandwiches, or on its own. Do not eat with tortilla chips because you don’t have any.
