California might be the greatest place on earth. I’m not talking about Hollywood here. I’m not talking about the all the gold it once harbored in its hills. I’m not even talking about the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. California is important across the landscape of history for a place called La Habra Heights. Never heard of it? Allow me to enlighten you.
Why Hass Avocados Are So Good
In 1926, a mail-carrier-cum-amateur-horticulturist named Rudolph Hass developed the specific cross-pollinated genus of arguably the most impeccable fruit ever grown: the Hass avocado. A better discovery than the light bulb. No offense, Edison.
This divine fruit is everything you want in a food: it is beautiful, it is lush, it is naturally creamy, and it is sky-high in nutrients . . . which is why this recipe is here!
One of my main goals with Nutritionicity is to take the not-good-for-you recipes we know and love and convert them into nutritional powerhouses by ingredient modification. But every once in a while you come across a recipe which is naturally healthful, no modification required! And this spicy guacamole is one of them — and a hit every time it is served.
This fantastic dish can be made in under 15 minutes (including the chili roasting) and will be consumed even faster!
Fire-roasted Three Chili Guacamole
A note on ingredients: We use only organic produce for our guacamole — the avocados, the tomatoes, the lemon, right down to the cilantro. I know it may be difficult to find all of these items in organic versions where you live, but it is worth pursuing. The flavor is all the more natural and luscious.
Perfect for your upcoming Cinco de Mayo parties, though it’s awfully good any day you make it!
