00001Growing 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!
