Colombian Guacamole

I love guacamole; it's fresh, cool and flavorful. AND easy to make!

The main ingredient in guacamole is avocado; which is a fruit by the way.  Don't shy away from avocados.  They're high in fat, it's true, but it's good for you fat.  But they are also very nutrient dense.

Colombian Guacamole

1 Large Ripe Avocado , Peeled and Pitted
4 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
3 Tablespoons Sweet Onion, Chopped
1 Tablespoons Serrano Chiles, Seeded and Chopped
1 Fresh Lime, Juiced
Coarse Kosher Salt

Combine avocado, cilantro, green onion, serrano chiles and lime juice in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Add water or lime juice to avocado mixture by tablespoonfuls if needed and blend until thick sauce forms.

Transfer to small bowl; season to taste with coarse salt and pepper and more lime juice, if desired. 

Guacamole can be made 2 hours in advance. Cover and chill.
