Zocalito Guacamole April 05 2013, 0 Comments

Preparation of good guacamole requires a good pico de gallo that has sat a while, so that all the flavors have had a chance to come together. This is also true of guacamole, so even though it doesn’t take 60 minutes to make this recipe, be sure to let the pico de gallo rest for 30 minutes before adding it to the avocados. 

4 to 6 servings 

Preparation time 60 minutes

1/2c.  finely diced tomatoes

1/2c.  finely diced red onion

1/8c.  finely diced jalapeno filets

1 tsp. finely chopped cilantro

1/2 tsp. sea salt 

1 tsp. red chilhuacle chile powder

Uniformly dice the tomatoes, onions and jalepenos. Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir periodically over the 30 minutes of resting time.
