Bubba’s Guacamole


It is dangerous for me to start eating guacamole, especially with tortilla chips as I don’t know when to stop.

For that matter, I know of someone who may feel the same way; and that someone is my older son, Bubba ~ as in Bill. Jr.  For those of you who follow my blog, you will recall a couple of his great recipes:  chili, posted on Nov. 21, 2009 and enchiladas, posted on Jan. 12, 2010.



His guacamole is delicious and particularly so on a succulent grilled hamburger.  As you know, he loves hot food and with this recipe he usually adds 2 or 3 Serrano peppers.  That’s too much heat for me, so I cut it back most of the time. 

I know there are a lot of cooks out there who doctor their guacamole up several notches with many add-ins, but Bubba keeps the ingredients for his at a minimum which makes it really quick to make and simply delicious.  


Avocados, also called “alligator pears,” are native to Central and South America being used mainly to accompany meat and salads and of course, for preparing guacamole.  

They contain healthy fat, protein and a whopping dose of fiber.  Avocados are surprisingly a complete food, having 14 minerals to stimulate growth, including copper and iron for your blood.  They are very filling!

Serrano chili peppers have thin walls; therefore, they do not need to be steamed or peeled before eating, which makes it the perfect pepper for guacamole and salsas.  They also are 5 times hotter than the jalapeño with a flavor that is crisp, bright, biting and hot!  Plus, they’re pretty! 

Bubba knows a good thing and how to make it!  Here’s his recipe:

Bubba’s Guacamole

Ingredients:

2 ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
½ medium red onion, quartered
2-3 Serrano peppers
1-2 tablespoons cilantro (I use parsley)

Method:

Place all ingredients in a blender jar in the order given. 
Pulse intermittently 8 to 10 times or until it reaches a chunky or smooth consistency, whichever you prefer.
You may need to turn off the blender and use a spatula to scrape the sides of the jar and process more. 
Serve and enjoy!

Bubba's note:  If desired, dice half a tomato and stir it into the guacamole after it's out of the blender.

I’m a sucker for guacamole and Bubba’s is the best!

  1. Wonderfully simple recipe! My husband loves spicy food so he would love the Serrano peppers. I am a wimp. I don't like it as hot as he does.

  4. My mouth is just watering. We had very big avo trees in South Africa and Zimbabwe and we used to have huge fruit that we eat almost all year round. Oh I do miss them. Sometimes we can buy nice ones here, but more often than not they are not stored well and they are tastless. Diane

  25. I know what you mean about starting to eat guacamole, it's so addictive! Funny you mentioned burgers and avocados, that's what we're having tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Little Inbox, you must try the guacamole to find out, it's great!

    mr. pineapple man, just try it again in water and see what happens! Guac is the best, yum!

    Fresh Local and Best, that's the bad thing, it's so addictive and that means more chips. Sounds like you had a good dinner to me!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
