Lo’s NON-Traditional Guacamole


20150704_113254_20150704120627262Okay, so this is not a traditional guacamole recipe, but a least I’m not suggesting you add green peas. 🙂

This recipe does have some ingredients you don’t find in “regular” guacamole. If that’s what you want, click here:

Real Authentic Mexican Guacamole

I often take MY version of guac to my writer’s group meetings. My writer friends insist they like mine the best of any they’ve tried. (Suddenly, I’m feeling like Mrs. Elton from Emma.)

 Lo’s Non-traditional Guacamole

Ingredients

Ingredients

4 ripe avocados, pitted and scooped out.

(Need a tutorial for that? Here you go:

How to Cut, Slice, Peel and Prepare Avocados )

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

3 green onions, tops and bulbs diced. Reserve some for garnish

1 Tablespoon lime juice or the juice of one fresh lime

Diced jalapenos, to taste

 2 teaspoons chopped garlic

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

Place pitted, peeled and chopped avocado in a medium mixing bowl. Mash avocado with a fork or potato masher until desired consistency is reached. Add lime juice. Stir.

Add the yogurt. You can stop here if you like and garnish with the reserved chopped onions.  This way guests may choose rather to incorporate the yogurt into their bite of guac or not.

If you’d rather just go for it, then stir the yogurt in. Add salt and pepper to taste

While the yogurt does dull the color of the guacamole somewhat, the added creaminess and taste make up for washing out the color a little.

Always taste the guacamole before serving to adjust the flavors to your preference.
