Growing up in So Cal, I eat A LOT of guacamole!! It’s one of my favorite foods ever! I’m always striving to create different versions of this perfect food! Sun-dried tomatoes add a pop of sweetness to this spicy and savory guacamole. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Fun in the Sun Guacamole
Makes about 2 cups
What you’ll need:
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
2 ripe avocados
1/4-1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not in oil!)
a handful of cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, minced (with ribs and seeds if you like it spicy and take them out if you don’t)
1/8 tsp. chile lime salt (if you can’t find it, use the juice from 1/2 lime and a sprinkle of dried ground chile)
What you’ll do:
Put the diced onion in a medium bowl and sprinkle with a little salt. (the salt will help draw some of the bitterness out of the onion.) Peel and de-pit the avocados, dice them and add them into the onions. Smash with the back of a fork. Fold in the tomatoes, jalapeno and cilantro; then season with the chile lime salt to taste.
Serve with chips or for a low-fat option, serve with jicama, cucumber or celery!
