1 Red Onion
1 Cilantro bunch
½ Serrano Pepper
¼ clove Garlic
Juice of two limes
Salt and Pepper
To begin dice tomatoes and onions. Mince Serrano pepper, garlic and cilantro. Place all ingredients on the side until ready to use. Cut avocado in half and remove seed and spoon out into a molcajete or medium size bowl. Mash avocado until almost smooth leaving some lumps for texture. Fold in other ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in favorite bowl or in molcajete with basket of tortilla chips. Grate or crumble panella cheese on top of the guacamole for an added touch. Provecho!
Marco Bustamante was presented also in ESCAPES magazine, November 08 – March 09 issue.
