Sylvia’s Guacamole

There are many different versions of guacamole. I always prefer mine with lots of tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Perhaps it’s because I like the avocado to take on a supporting role in the recipe. My friend Sylvia knew how I liked my guacamole and when I was behind getting all the stuff done for a party, she graciously offered to make it for me. She decided to surprise me with her recipe that resembled my own, but took it to a new and delicious level.

2 ripe avocados
¾ cup chopped tomatoes
½ cup finely chopped onions
1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and finely chopped
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
¼ teaspoon chopped serrano pepper, or to taste
½ teaspoon cumin
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped shallots
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
Equipment: ceramic or glass medium bowl
• On a cutting board, place chopped shallots and add ½ teaspoon salt to the shallots. Chop the shallots with the salt until they form a paste.
• Cut the avocados in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon and place on cutting board. Cut the halves into small pieces and place in bowl.
• Pour the lime juice over the avocado and carefully stir. The juice will keep the avocado from turning brown.
• Mix in the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, garlic, pepper, cumin, shallot paste and remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Gently stir the ingredients together. Add the cilantro, mixing it slowly into the guacamole.
• Taste and adjust seasonings to personal taste.
