Guacamole SOL Recipe
Recipe from Amor y Tacos by Deborah M. Schneider (Stewart Tabori & Chang, 2010)
Ingredients and Preparation:
2 ripe Hass avocados
1 T. fresh-squeezed lime juice (about 1 lime)
.5 tsp. kosher salt
¼ cup finely diced white onion
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 Serrano chile, minced (optional)
2 T. cored and seeded Roma tomato, diced
2 T. peeled ripe mango, cut into small dice
1 tsp. Blanco tequila
1 tsp. lime juice
1 T. goat cheese, crumbled
1 T. pomegranate seeds (if pomegranates are not available, substitute toasted pine nuts)
Garnish: cilantro sprig, fresh tostadas, lime wedges
Split, pit and mash the avocado flesh with the lime juice and salt, using a potato masher, fork or a whisk in an up and down motion (never a blender or food processor).
Stir in the onion, cilantro, Serrano and tomato. Place in a serving dish. Toss the mango with the tequila and lime juice. Arrange the mango, goat cheese, and pomegranate seeds in neat rows on top of the mashed avocado.
Set a cilantro sprig on top and serve with fresh tostadas and limes. At the table, stir the ingredients into the guacamole and enjoy.
