Papa's Delectable Guacamole

Submitted by: INTREPIDMAMA
Papa's Delectable Guacamole

Introduction

While in Guatemala earlier this year, Papa managed the near impossible (or so I thought.) This is to create a guacamole that Mama actually liked.

You see, Mama had lived in Mexico over a decade ago, and grown up in an East Coast city with loads of Spanish people and Spanish food around, yet never once tasted a guacamole that she liked. Which made this Mama very sad, as I know how healthy avocados are and really, really wanted to like them.

Try as I might, no likage occurred. It wasn’t the slimy greenness of the guacamole, that I surprisingly can handle. It was the flavour, or lack thereof.

Until magnificent Papa got his hands on some nicely ripe avocados in Guatemala. A quick list from Mama of what is usually in Guacamole, plus a few hints and tips from online resources and ta-da! Papa’s Delectable Guacamole!!!

And it truly is, too. I cannot stop eating it and I am now a happy lover of guacamole. So, thanks my dearest Papa! You rock! Saved the day once again, haven’t you?

Now, for those Latin American food purists out there, I know that some of the ingredients may not be traditional. But, we were going for the Mama tastebud stamp of approval only.

Without further adios, or whatever…..
