Guac with a twist!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here’s my take on the traditional guacamole with a little of a kick! Enjoy.

  • 3 avocados – peeled, pitted, and diced

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/2 cup diced leeks

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 3-5 cherry tomatoes, diced

  • 1/2 cup diced pickled Jalapeños

  • 1/2 tablespoon of Jalapeño brine (optional)

In a molcajete or medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix in leeks, cilantro, tomatoes (I use tomatoes as a garnish on top because my husband doesn’t like them). Stir a little bit of Jalapeño brine for more of kick. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavour, or serve immediately.
