Monday Morning Inspiration: National Guacamole Day

Yes, I do live in Texas & therefore, Guacamole is one of my major food groups!

And, therefore I have an entire day of Guacamole recipes to celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day & National Guacamole Day Tomorrow.  You can incorporate them into your Modern Jewish Wedding (or your Modern Jewish Entertaining) at anytime.

By definition it is, “A popular Mexican specialty of mashed avocado mixed with lemon or lime juice and various seasonings (usually chili powder and red pepper). Sometimes finely chopped tomato, green onion and cilantro are added.”


Serving breakfast at anytime to your weekend guests?  Breakfast tacos are a unique treat.  Tasty and easy to eat with your hands.  They also make great midnight snacks after the party ends.

That’s easy!  Chips & Guacamole a fabulous lunchtime snack make.

Because in my house The Food Network’s Alton Brown is considered a culinary god, here’s his fan favorite recipe for good ‘ole fashioned Guac.  Perfect for game day with chips or on top of your grilled burger.

3 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced

In a large bowl place the scooped avocado pulp and lime juice, toss to coat. Drain, and reserve the lime juice, after all of the avocados have been coated. Using a potato masher add the salt, cumin, and cayenne and mash. Then, fold in the onions, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of the reserved lime juice. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then serve.


Speaking of a guacamole burger.  This recipe can be found on the California Avocado site.

Don’t believe me about how wonderful & healthy the avocado dip is?  How about trusting HuffPost?

And, what would National Guacamole Day be without a margarita to pair it with?  Being from Austin, we have the perfect twist on this tequila staple.  Curra’s Grill Avocado Margarita.  The Austinist found out how they’re made.  But, we’re not spilling any secrets here–come to Austin and we’ll take you out for one!  L’Chaim!
