Oh yes, slice and bake is how we roll in this house when it comes to cookies…and I rarely bake anything that doesn’t come out of a box save for my biannual attempt at muffins. …I feel that urge coming on.
But last night, we made delicious fajitas with the best guacamole and I had to share! The secret is the orange juice–an idea that I got while at one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio, Boudro’s, where they make their guacamole fresh table side…with delicious fresh citrus, ripe avocados, and usually fire roasted tomato salsa. We skipped the salsa as J hates tomatoes!
The “Best Guacamole” serves 4-6 or a (very avocado crazy pregnant lady and a toddler)
Inspired by “Boudro’s on the River Walk, San Antonio”
- 2 avocados
- juice of 1 lime (about 4 Tbs and it MUST be fresh for the best taste)
- 2Tbs minced red or sweet onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
- 2 Tbs orange juice
- 4-6 minced pickled jalapeno slices, more if you like it spicy
- 1/4c chopped cilantro
- salt to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash with fork. Taste for salt. If it doesn’t have a “bright” flavor it needs more. There’s nothing better!
