For many of the 20 or so women there, it was our first time meeting up with that particular group, so there was a good amount of "getting to know each other" happening in addition to the brainstorming and pool partying.
We were all encouraged to bring snacks and drinks to the rooftop, and I thought that fresh guacamole and tortilla chips seemed like a pretty decent pool-side summer snack. While I'd never made guacamole before, I was fairly sure that since it involved no cooking or baking... I'd probably be able to avoid screwing it up.
I found a recipe on allrecipes.com for guacamole that looked easy enough, with no crazy surprise ingredients listed. I just needed to adjust the recipe to make more of it, since there were going to be quite a few ladies at the pool!
Here's what you need:
- 5 avocados, all soft to the touch
- 1 1/2 limes
- 3-4 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
2. Squeeze the juice from the limes into the mashed avocados, then add salt to the mixture and combine it well.
3. Add your onions, garlic, tomatoes and cilantro...
Mix it all together well and BAM:
|. bitches be like......... .|
. DAMN that's some good guac! .
I actually really enjoyed myself while making this, which is pretty crazy if you know me and know how much I generally hate preparing food. It was fun to chop, peel and mash all those avocados. The best part of all is that the girls at the pool really enjoyed it!
Do you have a killer guacamole recipe, or do all guac recipes pretty much include the same things in the same ratios?
