What’s green and yummy and super fatty, but still good for you??? AVOCADO!!! Avocado’s are so awesome they have their own website….Avocado Awesomeness, (I created that name, it’s not reaaallly called that).
I know I’ve given you all a recipe for guacamole before, but I’ve decided to give it a different use than a simple dip. I’ve made it into a super fabulous open face sandwich. I think this guacamole is so yummy you really don’t need much additives to make this sandwich delicious. I will confess the one problem with this meal is not much on the protein front, but never fear I have a solution for this problem coming up in my next post, keep a look out for it.
juice and zest of one lime
1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper
1/2 of red pepper
a few splashes of hot sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
Bread of choice
shredded cheddar cheese to sprinkle
How you make it
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut your bread so you have a good surface to spread on.
Next, Chop up all your mix-ins, onion, pepper, jalapeno pepper, and tomato, set aside in a small bowl.
Cut open your avocado and scoop out the insides into a medium bowl. Mash up with a fork, your hands, a potato masher, whatever is good at smashing really. Immediately zest your lime over the bowl and then cut the lime open and squeeze it out over the avocado. This stop it from turning that gross brown color. Stir in the mix-ins you chopped earlier. Season with your hot sauce, salt and pepper and you are good to fill your belly.
Now you can immediately spread your guacamole on to your bread, sprinkle with cheese and pop it into the oven until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasty, about 10 minutes, OR you can let the flavors mingle, set it in the fridge for a bit and then make your sandwich.
Obviously if there are leftovers I’m sure you will know how to handle them (HINT: Tortilla chips). So hunker down and enjoy this tasty sandwich. Enjoy!
