Summer is on and the holidays are around the corner for many of us. Time to light up the barbecue, guys! At our place, we have a tradition: making guacamole as an appetizer before each barbecue.
I admit I’m usually not the one whipping up guacamole at home. My boyfriend David loves guacamole and he excels at this recipe. I know that during his childhood in the US, he spent some time in Mexico to learn spanish. He might have tried some good guacamole out there!
When moving to Sweden a few years back, our good friend Andreas taught him a little twist: using some limes instead of lemons in the recipe. Andreas is crazy about lime and he’s really good at using them in recipes! We loved the idea straight away, and now it’s like a tradition for us: each time we have guests, David whips up his delicious guacamole with limes!
But for once, I decided to try the recipe on my own! Even if he is a master at guacamole, it doesn’t mean I couldn’t be too. After all I saw him many times making the recipe! I chose a day he was away travelling to make sure he wouldn’t be around in the kitchen trying to grab the bowl or telling me how I should do, and I made the guacamole recipe. It was just perfect!
This guacamole recipe is really easy to make, very quick to prepare and super tasty: just in between mild and spicy, with a delicious creamy consistency. Good news: this guacamole is also very healthy since you don’t need to add any cream in it! You can enjoy it like this or you can spread it in a sandwich instead of butter or cheese. Just delicious!
