I just came back from a few days visiting my family in Miami. And in Miami, just like in Puerto Rico, people sell produce at the street lights. A few days back we bought 4 avocados for $5. Amazing… because they were all good avocados. Sometimes when they sell them to you that cheap is because they’re not so good on the inside. And with avocados, it’s a crap shoot. Sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you need to throw a whole avocado away.
I said they were all good, but some were too ripe and they were smashed underneath the skin next to the ones that were still under-ripe. And that only left me one alternative to enjoy them – make an awesome Guacamole.
1 avocado, if the flesh is firm, cut into small pieces ½ large tomato, peeled and finely diced ¼ medium onion, finely diced The juice of 1 criollo lemon or lime A drizzle of olive oil – about 1 tbs Salt and Pepper to taste 2 tbs of fresh parsley (optional)
- Mix everything in a medium sized bowl.
- Let it stand in the fridge for a few hours so the flavors meld together.
This version ended up being more mashed than what I usually like it. But remember we started out with mashed avocados. When I make it again, I post another picture so you can see the difference in texture. And That’s really the only difference because the taste is equally delicious.
