Time for guacamole! Our favorite recipe comes from our friend Scarlett de la Vega Ochoa, a native of Puebla, Mexico. Here’s how she makes it!
Try a guacamole recipe from Mexico! This creamy dip is sure to delight you and your party guests. Fair trade avocados = perfection.
- 4 avocados
- 1 small white onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
- 2 plum tomatoes, diced
- 1-2 limes, juiced
- 1 tablespoon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- salt and pepper, to taste
Finely chop the garlic, onion and cilantro and juice the limes.
Cut avocados in half, remove the pit and slice. Detach avocado from peel with spoon and place fruit in a bowl.
Pour juice of one lime along with the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. With a fork, smash the avocados until all ingredients are mixed.
Add onion (if it's too strong, rinse with warm water first), cilantro, and tomatoes.
Mix and taste it. If it needs more lime, add the other one and mix again.
Equal Exchange proudly works with PRAGOR, a group of small-scale avocado farmers in Michoacán Mexico. Corporate interests have made it difficult for small-scale farmers to compete in the market. But the farmers of PRAGOR organized to control the entire process, from growing to exporting.
Ask the produce department at your local grocery store to carry fairly traded avocados from Equal Exchange!
