Guacamole Parfaits

Ingredients

  • 1 diced avocado (we used 2 avocados since they seemed small)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt to taste (we used kosher salt)
  • 1 diced tomato
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 1 chopped seeded jalapeño
  • Cilantro, lime wedges and tortilla chips for toppings

Directions

  1. In one bowl, mix together the diced avocado and lime juice, adding salt to taste. In a separate bowl, mix together the tomato, red onion, jalapeño and salt to taste. In a martini glass, layer the avocado and tomato mixture (we start the parfait with a layer of the tomato mixture).
  2. Top this with any cilantro, lime wedges and tortilla chips you may be using and enjoy !

This was a simple but tasty guacamole. You could taste every component in this. Even though the jalapeño was seeded we could still get a little bit of heat.

We got this recipe from Food Network Magazine.

No-Frills Guacamole

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ Tbsp. finely chopped white onion
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped seeded jalapeño
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 ripe avocados, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Take a medium-sized mixing bowl out and mix the onion, lime juice, jalapeño and salt together in it. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Now add in the avocados, mashing to your own preferred consistency. Stir in the cilantro* and serve.

*We initially forgot to add in the cilantro but even when we did remember to, we didn’t think the cilantro improved or hurt the flavor of the guacamole.

Even though we were skeptical of this recipe at first we decided to try it because I don’t care for the texture of tomato pieces and this was one of the few guacamole recipes that didn’t list tomatoes as an ingredient. All that being said, it didn’t seem like there was enough of the other ingredients besides the avocado to bring flavor to the guacamole. Boy were we wrong ! This ended up being one of the best guacamoles that we’ve ever had ! We didn’t pick up any heat from the jalapeños at all. For something so simple, it packs a lot of flavor !
