EVERY TIME I have gone to the store lately, there have been the most lovely avocados. I have been eating them like mad. One of my favorite ways to eat them is in guacamole. Here is a recipe for quick, easy and delicious guacamole. No one in my house, except me, will eat avocado, so this recipe is guacamole-for-one, but this recipe is easy to multiply if you have multiple guac lovers in your house.
Halve the avocado and remove the pit. You can easily remove the pit by striking it gently with the knife blade (which should stick in there) and giving it a twist. The pit will pop right out.
Score each half of the avocado inside the skin two to three times up and down and across. Using a spoon, scoop the pieces out into a bowl. Add the chopped onion, and use a fork to smash the onion and avocado together.
The more you smash the onion with the avocado, the more flavor you will get. Add the chopped cilantro and the salt (to taste) to the mixture and stir them all together.
Serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips, tacos, burritos, quesadillas or anything else you like.
Don't let it sit around for long because it will turn brown. Sometimes, I like to prepare the onion and cilantro in advance in a small container and pack the whole avocado in my lunch to be smashed together when I am ready to eat it. Enjoy!
