Well, last night's "blue plate special" was healthy and different - at least for us. We had turkey soft tacos. When my HH asked and I told him, he kind of wrinkled his nose, since he's a meat and potatoes guy (although less and less). Very simple, very tasty and a healthy way to start the New Year. Okay, so never mind about the guacamole made fresh and in the kitchen - delicious! The guacamole is easy and with avocados in season right now, not too expensive either (they were $0.50 each last week).
Guacamole - Holly's Diner style
3 ripe Haas avocados
1 Roma tomato
2 slices of red onion
guacamole seasoning package
Cut avocados in half, remove seed. Slice each half in the skin length-wise, then across without going through the skin - the smaller the cubes the better. Scoop out avocado cubes with a spoon and place in medium non-stainless bowl. Take a spoon and start smashing avocados in the bowl. (I smash them about 70% - 75% creamy, I like a little chunkiness in the guac.)
Slice Roma tomato into small chunks, about the same size at the avocado cubes. Place in bowl with avocado.
Stack onion slices, and slice in half. Chop each half into small chunks. Place in bowl with tomato and avocado.
Take a package of guacamole seasoning from the produce section of the grocery store. Don't follow the directions! Add about 1/3 to 1/2 of the seasoning to the avocado mixture. Stir well, gently. Delicious right away, or put in refrigerator for an hour or two if you like.
