Ortega guacamole

This guacamole recipe is courtesy of Ortega, and, not surprisingly, it contains canned green chiles. Green onions give it crunch while lime juice adds zip.

2 medium avocados
1 4-ounce can diced green chiles
2 large green onions, chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, chopped

Mash avocados and add other ingredients. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

Guacamole with Fresh Green Chile

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

I found this recipe when I was in college (in the early ’90s) and found the results to be quite tasty, although I’m not a fan of the bell pepper and so I left it out. It comes from The Book of Mexican Foods by Christine Barrett and is part of a series with step-by-step photos.

1/2 small onion, finely chopped
4 tomatoes (peel, seed and chop)
1 green chile (seed and chop)
1/2 small green bell pepper (seed and chop)
1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
2 avocados
salt and pepper
2 tsp lemon juice

Mix onion, tomatoes, chile, bell pepper and cilantro. Mash in avocado. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice. Stir.
