We’re in avocado season… and there’s no way I can eat a whole avocado in slices in one sitting. Unless… It’s converted into guacamole!!!!!
My new thing with guacamole… eating it with BBQ potato chips instead of tortilla chips!!! These are the genius ideas one comes up in serendipity – when a natural doctor tells you to stay away from corn for a whole month.
And where does the “agrandado” comes from?? Agrandado in Spanish means “supersized”, like the combos in fast foods joints. We recently went to a Mexican restaurant and we wanted a small batch of pica de gallo and there were 2 options – regular and “agrandado”. I immediately though the agrandado version was simply… more quantity. But nooooooo… Agrandado meant it has pieces of queso fresco inside.
So for my sister’s recent visit, I decided to make my guacamole even BIGGER and BETTER with pieces of queso blanco del país inside… making it a Guacamole Agrandado!!!!
1 avocado, 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 1/3 cup of pieces of Queso Blanco del País or Mexican Queso Fresco or a mild Feta 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.
