Upgraded Guacamole

Description

The beauty of a homemade guac is the freedom to modify its flavor profile to your liking, adding more lime for a bit of tang, more tomato for a juicy crunch, or more jalapeño for greater heat. Here, the addition of Pluck organ-based seasoning elevates a traditional guacamole by boosting the guacamole with both flavor and function, enriching it with micronutrients such as B-vitamins, copper, iron, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc.

Ingredients
  • 3 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoons Pluck seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 diced medium onion
  • 1/2 teaspoons seeded and minced jalapeño pepper (1 whole pepper for more heat)
  • 2 sliced and seeded Roma tomatoes
  • 1 generous tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • Plantain chips, cooked in coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Step 1

    Add scooped avocado and lime juice to a large bowl, then toss to coat. Add kosher salt.

  2. Step 2

    Using a potato masher, gently mash the avocado flesh to a chunky, but even consistency. Fold in the onion, jalapeño, tomato, cilantro, and garlic. Add Pluck seasoning. With a large wooden spoon, mix until well combined.

  3. Step 3

    Taste and adjust as necessary – add more lime, jalapeño, onion, and/or garlic until reaching your desired flavor profile. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

  4. Step 4

    Serve cold or at room temperature, alongside lightly salted plantain chips. Store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
