Guacamole, a la my husband.

dsc_0049-2

 This is my husband’s recipe for guacamole.  It’s his prized recipe.  I’m exploiting it.  He’s not Mexican, but it’s better than guacamole from Mexico.  Everyone loves it, including Mexicans.  We eat bowls and bowls of it. It’s wonderful.  Serves 6.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 8 oz. Jack’s Special Salsa (whatever flavor you wish, we use mild or medium)
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt

Directions:

  1. In food processor, blend avocados, salsa, and onion together.  Pour into bowl.
  2. Stir in lime juice, and add salt to taste.  Serve with tortilla chips.

* Guacamole will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days if well sealed in container.

A nice healthy accompaniment to any main dish.  If you live in an apartment and don’t have a backyard grill, use a panini or george foreman grill.

Grilled Zucchini (serves 2-4)

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium to large zucchinis
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions:

1.  Using a peeler, peel stripes vertically on zucchini, as seen in picture below.

2.  Slice into 1 inch 1/2 inch (sorry, I’m a moron and should’ve used a ruler) thick slices.  Try to make the thickness consistent so they grill evenly together.  Brush olive oil on both sides, salt and pepper.

3.  Grill until brown, flip to other side and continue grilling until done. Serve.
