Hi Diners! It has been a while since my last post, but not my last meal. Life got a bit in the way, I took up a new hobby, and honestly was having a challenge finding new things for the Diner.
But after a deep breath, a little time to rest, the need for a distraction and a new focus I’m ready to get back to Holly’s Diner. The focus will be some of my favorite things, old and new, for 52 consecutive weeks. Let’s get started…
Guac, short for guacamole, one of my favorites. You have to have good chips with guac and just the right avocados. Haas avocados are the best for guac, in my cookbook, and although I love the chips from El Indio they are not always convenient to get to. So Albertsons know carries a close, good substitution as their chips are fresh, thick and very crunchy.
What should good guac have? A couple of avocados, a dollop of sour cream, two tablespoons of fresh salsa and some onion to taste. Season with sea salt, fresh ground pepper and some garlic powder. Start with the avocados, smush with a fork to the desired texture, then add everything else. You should always make just as much as you are going to eat at on setting, you don’t want left over guac as it can get funky.
