Everybody loves Guacamole and most people seem to make the same old style that we’ve seen a hundred times in every cook book and granted its amazing!!! We love it, but sometimes it’s also nice to mix it up a bit and change things here and there. Here’s an easy one where we cut down a bit on the avocado and instead throw in some nice cannelloni beans instead. Give it a try, it’s very good.
1 can (16 ounces) white kidney beans / cannelloni drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 jalapeño chile – seeds removed
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup coarsely chopped Vidalia (sweet) onion
1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
2 plum tomatoes chopped
Most people just throw everything into a food processor and let her do her business, honestly it’s always better to do the chop and the mash by hand with a really sturdy fork, but maybe we don’t all have the time to do it or we’re making way too much for a dinner party and want to cut corners. Here’s a quick trick. First do the veggies by themselves, pulsed a few times, then clear those into a bowl. Then, no need to wash the processor bowl, do the avocado and beans with the lime juice. Then mix those together by hand (fork).
