Everyone has their own version of guacamole. I have tried multiple friend’s recipes as well as multiple restaurants and never had the same guac twice. Although they all have their own unique twist, I enjoy them all! We love guacamole as a snack accompanied with tortilla chips as well as on burritos!
Here is my version. Feel free to alter and make it your own!
4 avocados (soft enough you can make an indent in them but not ripe enough that they are mush)
1/4 cup of diced red onion
1/2 cup of diced tomato
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. of minced garlic
1/4 tsp. cilantro leaves
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. creole seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
Begin by peeling, pitting and mashing the avocados in a large bowl. Finely dice the red onion and tomato and add to the bowl. Add the spices, lime juice and use a potato masher to mash everything together, then use a fork to mix the ingredients well. Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve immediately at room temperature with your favourite chips or as a topping for burritos or another meal of your choosing! Enjoy!
One of our absolute favourites is this delicious and nutritious bean dip. Eat it with nacho chips, crackers or our favourite – naan, and enjoy!
1 can of black beans (drained)
1 cup of spinach (raw)
3/4 cup of salsa
1 tsp. of Cumin
2-3 tbsp. of ground flax seeds (optional)
A pinch of salt
Combine ingredients in a food processor and process on high for about 2 minutes or until everything is well blended.
In the meantime put slices of naan on a cookie sheet and cook for about 5 minutes at 375F. Check regularly and remove when slightly toasted, then use a pizza cutter to cut into small triangles.
