It's national guacamole day so I pulled out a classic! I think I make the best guacamole. But then again, everyone think's they make the best guacamole. Here's my favourite version because it really packs a punch with added protein and is great as it's own meal with organic corn chips, veggie sticks, in a wrap, or stuffed inside a baked sweet potato!
ingredients (makes 2 cups):
2 ripe avocados
1 lime, juiced
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 C black beans
1/2 C thawed frozen corn
1/4 C red pepper, finely chopped
1/4 C green onion, finely chopped
1/2 C fresh cilantro, finely chopped
Remove the avocado flesh from the peel and mash in a bowl with a fork along with the lime juice, spices, sea salt, and pepper. Fold in the remaining ingredients and serve.
tip: if you're not serving it right away put the avocado pit in the middle of the bowl of guacamole to keep it from going brown and refrigerate.
optional: crushed garlic, red onion instead of green onion, hot sauce instead of cayenne.
