Lemony Jalapeno Guacamole
Enjoy my lemony jalapeno guacamole with tortilla chips, on nachos, in wraps and sandwiches, and any other way you'd normally eat guacamole. The recipe below makes approximately two servings, but you can multiply the ingredient quantities to make a larger amount.
1 large ripe avocado
1 Tbs diced red onion
1 Tbs diced fresh jalapeno
1 Tbs freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1/4 tsp freshly-grated lemon zest, plus a little more for garnish (a few long, curly slivers of lemon peel also make for a nice garnish)
Salt to taste
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop out the pulp into a bowl. Add lemon juice and zest, then mash to desired consistency. Add jalapeno and onion, stir to thoroughly combine. Serve, garnished with lemon zest or peel if desired.
PS: If you like the flavor and heat of jalapeno peppers, you'll love Texas Longhorn Jalapeno Dip, made with fresh jalapenos and other all-natural ingredients. It's fabulous on burgers, hot dogs, nachos, Tex-Mex foods, egg dishes and more.
