Neither of my kids will eat avocado. Why? I don't know. Personally, I think avocado is one of the world's most wonderful foods.
I thought maybe guacamole would be fun because they could help me make it and they generally like anything that involves chips.
I cut up the onion and cilantro while Ben (5) put the garlic through the garlic press. Bruno (2) was tasked with mashing the avocado and stirring everything together. They both juiced the lemons and limes and I added the seasonings.
It was easy and fun to make. The verdict? Ben said "Mom, this is the best guacamole ever!" And we ate all of it.
3 avocados 1/4 red onion 3 cloves garlic handful of cilantro 2 lemons 1 lime 1 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of cumin (optional) 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar (optional)
Dice red onion, mince the cilantro and garlic and add to a medium size bowl. Cut the avocado into cubes and add to bowl and mix together with the onion, cilantro and garlic, mashing roughly with a spoon. Add lemon and lime juice to taste, together with the salt, cumin and red wine vinegar. Serve with chips.
