Cooking with the JETS!

Blue Chip GuacaMollie



As an uprooted Texan living in Maine for more than 25 years, I've learned that if I get a hankerin' for Tex-Mex, I'd better make it myself. So ... here's my "Mainer" variation on that healthful green favorite otherwise known and Guacamole.


Ingredients:

2-3 ripe avocados, peeled with pits removed and set aside*



1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. Worchestershire sauce or freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice


1 tsp. ground cumin
Sea salt to taste
Cucumber, peeled and sliced
Fresh baby spinach leaves or mixed salad greens, washed and spun dry
Blue corn chips


Garnishes:
1 ripe tomato, peeled, seeded and finely chopped or minced**
Chopped ripe olives
Fresh cilantro
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar or Monterey jack cheese


In a small-medium mixing bowl, smash avocados with a fork to moderately lumpy consistency.


Add and mix in onion, W
orchestershire sauce or citrus juice, cumin and salt.


**Tomato may also be mixed in with avocados, onion, etc.


Serve on a bed or sliced cukes, spinach or salad greens. Spike with corn ships and add your choice of garnishes.
