After living in the Southwest for 6 1/2 years, I absolutely LOVE freshly made guacamole! There is nothing better than going to a Mexican restaurant where they make the guacamole right at your table! Yum! I also got spoiled being able to buy avocados pretty cheaply and frequently made my own guacamole at home.
Things have changed a little now in that my husband can’t eat tomatoes, onions, or peppers because of a hiatal hernia which causes GERD. That means that we have had to experiment a little to come up with some Southwestern foods that he can enjoy. So, after lots of attempts at varying ingredients, I’ve finally come up with a guacamole recipe that we both like:
3 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 large garlic clove, minced or pressed
1 tsp coarse salt
2 Tbsp lime juice
2-3 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 c. corn kernels (I used steamed frozen corn, but you could also try canned corn)
dash of ground cumin
In a medium bowl, mash together avocados, garlic, salt and lime juice. Stir in cilantro and cumin to taste. Fold in corn kernels to your liking (it just helps give it a chunky texture). It is best if served immediately or refrigerated for up to an hour before serving.
Let me know if you try it out or if you modify it and make it better!
