Holy Guacamole - Off to Mexico!

It’s happening: Today I can welcome the first guests for my birthday event, which I already announced HERE – and don’t forget: Stopping by pays! There are many cool things winnable. 😉

 

Hi together!

We are Imke and Jan. On our blog Hikelust we write about our roadtrips through the South West of the USA. Hiking, photography and driving dirt road are our big passions. You wan’t to float in wanderlust? Visit us.

 

 

Avocados are tasty and healthy – and incredibly versatile. Today we make a spicy dip out of the superfood, which you can use as an add-on for burritos and tacos. We got the inspiration from the food chain Chipotle – the Mexican Grill. We came across this during our roadtrips through the USA.

 

Recipe for Guacamole

 

And that’s how you find the perfect avocado:

You need a little instinctive feeling for it. The avocado definitely shouldn’t be so squashy that you can push through the peel of the avocado with your finger. The avocado is ripe, when the peel only gives in slightly.

You can only find firm avocados? No problem, just store them with apples for a few days at home. Apples exhale a ripening gas, which lets the avocado ripe. So in a few days you should have the perfect avocado.

 

Recipe for Guacamole

 

Guacamole alá Chipotle the Mexican Grill

Zubereitungszeit 15 minutes

Zutaten

  • 2-3 ripe avocados
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt
  • pepper
  • coriander (ground or fresh)
  • chilli, ground
  • 1 tbsp fizzy water (secret ingredient)

  1. Slice the avocado lengthways and cut around the pit. Twist both halves in opposite direction, that’s how you separate the halves. 

  2. Spoon out the avocado. You can cut the avocado in pieces and mash it with a fork or you simply use a mixer to process them into puree. It’s easier with a mixer, because you can add the garlic gloves at the same time so mince them.

  3. So now we have the „raw mass“ of the guacamole. Now it’s time for refining. Add olive oil and lemon juice and stir it in well. The lemon juice doesn’t only refines the guacamole, but also prevents it from becoming brown. 

  4. Now add the secret ingredient: Fizzy water. Just like in cakes it makes the guacamole foamier. Mince the onion and stir it in.

  5. Now it comes to the spicing of the guacamole. Two good pinches of salt, pepper and sugar found their way into the bowl. Depending on what you got in the store, you can now add your coriander or the minced coriander leaves. A little bit of ground chili belongs in every good guacamole. Decide for yourself, how spicy you want it.

  6. Ta-da – ready! Serve and enjoy!

    By the way, tortilla chips tastes very good with guacamole. Try it!
