Guacamole-Traditional and Fatted up a bit- Episode 11

By Patrick

Guacamole is a few simple ingredients:Avacado, Onion, Lime, Cilantra and Salt- However like most things today everyone wants to add more and more. So I make a classic version and then add some more items into the guacamole to fat it up a bit. One of the truly great dips of all time guacamole is also a great topping for tacos and burritos. Also I taste a 2007 Alexander Valley Vineyards New Gewurtz which is an inexpensive white wine that tastes pretty darn good.

    Simply awesome: “Bacon does what it does, it tastes great!”

    Good stuff Pat, keep it up.

    Right on again brother!

    I like to add in some cumin to my traditional guacamole. Gives it a nice ‘arid earthiness’ reminiscent of Mehico… whatever…I’m half in the bag so I don’t know what I’m saying.

    I’ve also been adding some fresh lemon juice, which gives a nice and different flavor…also, lemon preserves the heck out of the color whether you believe it or not.

    Next time I’m going to go all in on your fatted up version. That looks freakin’ awesome.

    I will try adding some cumin next time I make it, cumin is good- In terms of the lemon juice I know it preserves the color but the article I read stated thats the only reason they added but like you siad it def. adds flavor. GO FAT!

    I’m still partial to lime…but lemon adds a different twist. And I would continue to read no article that states that lime is only used in guac to keep the color green. I’ll eat brown guac all day as long as its got the lime going for it.

    Have you ever grilled the avocado? I have not, but they say that it preserves the color as well. I don’t know who ‘they’ is, but thats what they say.

    never have grilled them first- interesting- Wonder what grilling the Avocado and onions would taste like- may give that a whirl also- thank god Avocados are green that means you can eat as much as you like right?
