Guacamole

Now this is the original mexican guacamole. My comadre Wendy – from Mexico – made it, and was happy to share the recipe with us! “Comadres” in spanish is what  godmother and the mother of a child become after the christening –  “Compadres” refer to the father and godfather.

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados – ripe
  • 1 small onion – finely chopped
  • 1 tomato – finely chopped
  • cilantro –  leaves of a few stems, finely chopped
  • 1/2 lemon –  juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Mash the avocado with a fork.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix well.
