Strawberry Habanero Guacamole
Servings and Ingredients
|3||ripe medium-large avocados|
|½||medium red onion, chopped into pieces no larger than 1/4 inch|
|½||fresh habanero, stemmed, seeded, deveined and finely chopped|
|3 tbsp.||loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro|
|⅔ c.||chopped ripe strawberries, plus a little extra for garnish|
|1 tsp.||salt, optional|
- Cut the avocados in half, running a knife around the pit from top to bottom. Twist the halves in opposite directions to release the pit. Scoop the flesh from each half into a large bowl. Using a potato masher, a large fork or the back of a spoon, mash the avocado.
- Strain the onion under cold water and then add it to the avocado, along with the habanero. (Tip: You might want to wear latex gloves when handling the super-spicy habanero.)
- Finely grate 1-1/2 teaspoons lime zest and 1/2 teaspoon orange zest and add to the bowl. Juice both fruits and add 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1 tablespoon orange juice to the bowl. Add the chopped cilantro and strawberries and stir. Season with salt to taste. Sprinkle the finished guacamole with chopped strawberries.
