Guacamole is a super food! That's because it's made with fresh avocados with are loaded with nutrients. Choose avocados that are slightly soft to the touch, or ripen them on your countertop for a day or two.

  • 2 or 3 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow or red onion
  • juice from a fresh lime (optional)

Serves 4 to 6 as a side

  1. Cut the avocadoes in half and discard the pit. Scoop out the flesh and place it in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the Tabasco, Worcestershire and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Using a potato masher or a large fork, mash the avocado until it forms a smooth paste.
  3. Add the onion and juice from 1/2 of the lime. Taste the guacamole and season with more salt and/or lime as desired. Serve at room temperature.  (Note:  Leftover guacamole can be kept in the refrigerator.  Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to help prevent oxidation and browning.)

Thanks. I have just started getting into the kitchen. My wife is a southern style cook and likes to make just about everything fried and unhealthy as possible. As I am about to hit the 40 yr old mark, I can't continue to eat this way unless I want to keep seeing those strange looks on my doctors face when he gets my yearly labs back. In other words, for the sake of my family's health, I have decided to take over the kitchen. Hopefully, I can do this without offending anyone. Thanks for the tips!
