I'm a sucker for traditional guacamole. But, believe it or not, I know a number of people who don't like onions, and a few who don't like tomatoes, so making traditional guacamole is out of the question for them.
If you know anyone who likes avocados, but shies away from traditional guacamole, try this.
This simple and quick recipe makes a great dip to serve with tortilla chips, and has won over even my pickiest friends.
- 1-1½ ounces of Cotija cheese
- 1 or 2 ripe Avocados
- 1 lemon or lime wedge
- 1 or 2 sprigs of cilantro, optional
- 6-8 ounces of good tortilla chips
Slice and dice avocados and place into a bowl.
Squeeze lemon or lime juice over avocados. This will help to keep them from turning brown in the unlikely event that the bowl does not get emptied quickly.
Crumble cotija cheese and gently fold together with the avocados.
Garnish with cilantro sprigs. If you like cilantro, then consider chopping some up and placing it in a bowl next to the avocado/cotija mixture. Add more or less avocado or cheese to suit your taste.
Serve alongside a bowl of chips and your favorite salsa.
