Executive Chef/Co-Owner Arturo-Franco Camacho, of Camacho Garage, shows Tina Redwine how to make herb guacamole.
Makes 2-3 Cups
Ingredients:
4 Hass avocados, room temperature
1 Serrano chile, seeded
1 small white onion
Juice of 1 key lime
8 whole fresh mint leaves
8 whole fresh basil leaves
8 whole tarragon leaves
15 whole fresh cilantro leaves
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
Toasted pumpkin seeds
Directions:
Guacamole is probably the most recognized dish from Mexico, and there are thousands of variations. We like to add herbs for more roundness and freshness, to contrast with the creaminess of the avocados. In a bowl, mash the avocados with a fork. Mix in all the other ingredients until completely incorporated. Adjust seasonings. Garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds.
