A Guacamole recipe to celebrate Cinco De Mayo

When I first tried Mexican food 15 years ago, I did not like it at all. It was full of unusual flavors and spices and my throat was on fire. My least favorites were cilantro, jalapeno peppers and tamales. In fact, first time I cleaned jalapeno pepper, I paid with temporary coughing, eyes watering and nose itching :)  I did not know that even if you wash your hands with soap and water, the hotness is still there. So I always wear gloves when cleaning any type of hot peppers since then.

But, with time I started to like some of foods. I started with deep fried chimichangas and fajitas deliciousness and gradually increased my favorite's lists over the years. I am even cooking some dishes at home now and my family and friends love them.

One recipe I'd like to share today is guacamole, a perfect dip to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. I am not adding hot spices to mine but you can, of course.

3 ripe avocados
1 lime
2 garlic cloves
3 scallions
6-8 cherry tomatoes
cilantro leaves, about 2/3 cups or to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

How to make it:
Thoroughly wash and dry your vegetables. 
Cut each avocado lengthwise in halves, remove the pit.
Scoop avocado pulp into medium bowl with spoon and mash it with potato masher or a fork. Squeeze the lime juice over the avocados and gently stir it. Add crushed garlic, chopped tomatoes, cilantro, scallions and salt & pepper. 
Adjust seasonings to your liking.  Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour before serving.

You can serve it with chips, tortillas or pulled pork. It's fresh, healthy and delicious!

Happy Cinco De Mayo!
