Guacamole Addiction





Almost the moment we stepped on our cruise, I began to have intense cravings for...guacamole. Super strange, I know, especially considering I just started like guac a few weeks ago. I love avocados, but something about guac was kind of weird to me. Anyways.


Cruises are known to have a wide variety of endless amounts of foods, most of which are not chips and dip, unfortunately. Luckily for us, there was a Mexican restaurant on board called Sabor. We learned of a guacamole and margarita making class to be hosted at lunch on our final day at sea, so Christopher and I signed up, the great lovers of Mexican food that we are. 


I am so glad we did! Not only did we have an endless amount of guac, tacos, and multiple margs, but we walked away with the recipes for each after learning how to make them! We tried our own variation of each last week once we were back home, which made a Wednesday night dinner really fun. I'm also glad to have a little honeymoon souvenir to go into my recipe card box from my bridal shower!


Guacamole Recipe for 4
1/2 cup of diced red onion
2 tablespoons of diced fresh jalapeno
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 avocados
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 of a lime, juice
1/2 of a lemon, juice
1/4 cup cilantro
1/3 cup diced tomatoes

In the Mocajete {in my world, the grindy thing}, grind the onion, jalepeno and garlic. Add the cumin. Score the inside of the avocado into small cubes and remove the outer skin. Add teh avocado and mash lightly to a lumpy consistency. Add the juices, salt, cilantro, and mash again. Add the tomato last {if you add earlier, the guac will turn brownish}, and enjoy with fresh tortilla chips!


Margarita Recipe
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. orange liquor
2 oz. lime juice {fresh is best, but Rose's works well, too!}
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. of simple syrup

Shake, with ice, and serve in sea salt rimmed glasses.


I think there might be more couples cooking classes in our future!
