There is nothing quite so simple and delicious as a bowl of colorful guacamole.
I should have named this recipe "Floridian guacamole" instead of "Mexican" because last month I was in Florida, and that is where I made and ate this fabulous guacamole.
We were on vacation with three siblings and their families. The 2nd week, we all stayed together at my brother in laws house . We had so much fun cooking together. One of the treats we made and shared was this big bowl of Mexican guacamole.
The avocados were nice and ripe, and the entire recipe only took about 5- 6 minutes to make.
It's a perfect gluten free party dip for Sunday's Feb 5 Superbowl Game. Use celery sticks or corn chips as dippers and enjoy!
What makes a guacamole recipe Mexican?
I used the small variety of avocado which come from Mexico, and the optional tequila really authenticates it as Mexican !!! Hola
Helpful Tips for buying and using avocados:
1. If you make the guacamole in advance, be sure to leave the pits in the dip until you serve it . It will help keep the avocado dip from turning brown.. Remove the large pit before serving!
2. An avocado is ripe when the outer skin turns brown and the avocado becomes somewhat soft to the touch. If you buy a hard green avocado, you can just leave it out on the counter to ripen up. It takes about 3-5 days.
3. If you need to use the avocado sooner, put it into a brown paper bag ( never a plastic bag) together with a banana or an apple to speed up the ripening process.
4. If you forget to use your avocado and it becomes too ripe to use, you can give yourself and avocado facial or hair treatment. Avocad contains vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that are great for damaged hair.
Hair Treatment for Dry Dull Hair:
1/2 avocado for medium length hair
1/4 cup olive oil
Mash well together.
Use a comb and comb mixtue into hair and allow to sit for 15 minutes making sure to coat on the hair ends.
Wash out well and style as usual.
Do this twice a year or as needed.
