Guacamole - Ina Fridays

A new group, cooking Ina Garten recipes has started and you are welcome to join us.  We are posting the first Friday of the month and we will have a broad topic, each month.  This is the schedule.

This year's focus by type of dish:

APPETIZERS: April, August, December, April ('14)
SALADS/SOUPS/SIDES: May, September, January
MAIN COURSES: June, October, February
DESSERTS/OTHER: July, November, March

I selected a favorite of mine, Guacamole.  Ina has several recipes for the dish and I chose her chunky one. You can find this recipe here.



I love guacamole and it would be hard to find one that I don't like and this passed with flying colors.  I realized, I like a smoother guacamole.  I did like the addition of hot sauce  and the red onion.  I usually add tomato to mine so that was not a new ingredient.


Here are the Ingredients .

2 ripe Haas avocados
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
4 dashes Tabasco sauce
1/2 cup small-diced red onion 
 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small tomato, seeded, and diced

Ina makes a larger portion so do check her recipe for the original.

This group was started by the lovely Alyce of  More Time at the Table.  She has a soup cookbook, coming out in the near future.  I am excited to see this since I already love the recipes from Alyce's blog.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact Alyce and let her know.  In the meanwhile, check out the other recipes for this month from our other members.
