So our meals at the beginning of the week had a definite Mexican flavour to them! We made some appetizers in lieu of lunch one day and decided to use the avocados ($1.25/4) and jalapenos ($2.99/6) I had purchased.
- 2 avocados, pitted ($.63/2)
- 1 capful olive oil
- 1 capful lemon juice
- ~1tsp of minced jalapeno ($.25)
- ~1 tsp minced onion
- a dash of salt
- Mash the avocados with a fork.
- Mix in the liquids
- Stir in the jalapeno and onion
- Drizzle the salt and provide a final stir
The ingredients at the store cost $3.25 but the guacamole itself was $0.88
This is a super basic recipe and if you’ve got cilantro, garlic and tomatoes I suspect that it would be even better. Considering what I had on hand I was thrilled to make a tasty guacamole that satisfied my craving.In fact we ate it before I could snap a photo.
