So, today we went over to David's Step-Mom and Step-Sister's house for a great dinner made by our wonderful brother-in-law!
I always rack my brain on what I can take over to contribute, because I never go over empty-handed! So I found some corn on sale and also some avocados. So, I've always tried to make Guacamole myself and it never seems to taste just right. The other night I made some for our dinner and it was perfect. And what I ended up doing was combining a few things from a few recipes to make a recipe all my own.
The first thing you need to know about me, is that I never measure, unless I'm following a recipe for the first time, but when I create my own things, I just toss in stuff until it tastes right, so please bear with me and hopefully it won't confuse you!
1 shallot (from the onion family, pretty small, one whole one is actually two separate parts) finely diced
2 roma tomatoes (or whatever you have on hand), seeded, pulp removed and chopped
kosher sea salt, I used the fine, not coarse (you can use table salt, but I prefer sea salt, I'm a little weird that way)
Peel and mash the avocados, add in a good sized handful of the shallots and tomatoes until it looks/tastes good to you, I didn't use all of them, had a couple tablespoons of each left. Add the juice of the lime. And salt to taste. Mix together and taste, and add more of whatever you think it needs until it tastes right to you.
I made a smaller recipe for home, but that was the recipe I took today and it was practically wiped out. My mother-in-law isn't a fan of guacamole, she doesn't use much, and she kept going back for more, so I guess that's a good sign! :)
Anyway, just wanted to share with everyone!
