Easy Cheesy Guacomole

IMG 8630 IMG 8654

Easy indeed but not really cheesy.

1 Hass Avocado, Ripe (They are darker in color almost black when they are ripe)
4 tablespoons of your favorite salsa
2 teaspoons of lemon or lime to taste (optional)

Cut avocado in half. Take the seed out. Scoop into bowl. Add salsa and mash avocado up. Add lime or lemon to taste. I got this recipe from my aunt. It's quite simple.

Budding Cooking Tip #3: Leave the seed in the bowl to keep the guacomole from browning.

I thought it's the lemon or lime that keeps the avocado from browning?

I've actually tried this recipe, and I absolutely love it. It tastes substantially better than any packaged guacomole mixes or store container guacomole that I have tried in the past. Simple, but tasty. By the way, where's the cheesy part? :) If you want cheese, I love to sprinkle parmesan cheese on my guac and add tomatoes seasoned with garlic salt to garnish. Yum.

sim - i'm not sure where i've heard it. but i googled it and indeed both lemon and the seed can prevent browning. :) hehe

mushroom - it's not cheesy at all actually. :) but thanks for the tip. i should go buy some parmesan.
