Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 6 ripe medium avocados
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 a lemon, juiced–this keeps it green, as well as adding the taste.
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Halve the avocados and remove the pit. Using a large spoon, remove the creamy content into a large bowl.
  2. Then add the onion, cilantro, lemon juice and hot sauce, mixing with a fork to mash up the avocado. Careful not to over mix!
  3. Taste and adjust. Add the salt and pepper liberally, taste and adjust again. Enjoy!

Salsa Verde:

Note:  If fresh tomatillos are not available, use the canned version, but don’t roast them.

Ingredients

  • 8 fresh tomatillos
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, leaves plucked
  • 1 pasilla pepper (the large dark green ones)
  • 2 teaspoons pico pica (or any other hot sauce)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425 F, unwrap and rinse the tomatillos. They’re surprisingly sticky.
  2. Halve the tomatillos and arrange on a baking sheet. Drizzle the tomatillos and cloves of garlic with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Wrap the garlic in aluminum foil and place on the baking sheet with the tomatillos.
  3. Roast for 10 minutes then remove the garlic and crank the oven up to broil (550 F). Broil the tomatillos for 5-7 more minutes, or until browned at the edges and oozing. Add the tomatillos, cilantro, garlic, and pico pica to a food processor. Blend to whole thing together. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
