¡Olé!

By popular demand, here's Mrs. Nator's Semi-Famous Killer Guac recipe. You can pair it with her yummy baked chip recipe, below, or FN's Coveted Burrito Recipe. South meets northeast meets west for a flavormonious taste sensation!!!

N.B.: As with many guacamole recipes, Mrs. Nator cautions that the key to this one is flavouring "to taste". Feel free to tweak as desired, depending on available ingredients and your desires.

Mrs. Nator's Semi-Famous Killer Guac!

2 ripe avocados (nice and black)
1 lime, juiced
1 jalapeno pepper
1 small onion
½ clove garlic (or whole, depending on your taste)
1 tomato, seeded
Olive oil and salt to taste

Finely chop onions and garlic and strain under cold water for a few seconds (cuts the bitterness) and put in bowl. Chop pepper and add to onion. Peel avocado and add to bowl. Mash with onion mixture using a fork or potato masher. Add seeded tomato, salt, and lime juice to taste. You may not need all the juice – depends on your taste. Stir. Add olive oil, just to right consistency (probably 1 -2 tablespoons). Try with:

Mrs. Nator's E-Z Low Fat Chips!

Tortillas
Olive oil
Salt
Chili powder (optional)

Slice the tortillas to desired size. Rub with olive oil. Sprinkle chili and salt. Cook in oven on high – 450-500 degrees – until toasted brown. Usually only takes a few minutes.

E-Z, no? But trust me, simple = delicious. These chips are so much better for you than the bagged, fried variety, that you can almost excuse dipping them in the deadly Ro*Tel/Velveeta combination dip. You can also make "nachos" by melting beans and cheese on the chips and adding guac.

¡Muchas gracias, Señora Natór!

eh eh eh. i am laughing at the low fat chips in concert with guacamole :-)

but then guac is a good fat, so carry on. i do love me some guacamole. i could just get a spoon and eat it out of the bowl, no chips required.
