My husband reminded me this morning of the drawer full of avacados that I needed to use before our weekend trip to New Mexico.
So, what did I do? I called my sister-in-law and said "let's make veggie tacos!" I decided that I would make quacamole the center of the dish.
Here is how it went...
The key players: Avocados (6), Red Pepper (1), Garlic (4 large cloves) and my beloved food processor.
Here is what I did:
First I scooped out the avocados into the food processor bowl.
Second I added the red pepper (sliced into pieces).
Next I added the garlic.
Once the key players were settled into the bowl I added salt to taste, cayenne pepper to taste (not too spicy but enough to add some heat), the juice of one lime, and about a tablespoon of cumin.
Then I pushed ON and let the magic happen.
Too simple, I thought. I need another element. Something more.
Hmmmm....so, I tasted the creamy creation. What did it needed? Not one thing! Nothing!
To make myself feel better I added a little more lime juice for some extra added zing...but that is optional.
I used the guacamole as the base ingredient in a soft taco, but it was delicious as just a dip with tortilla chips.
Easy, Versatile, Tasty!
