Aguacate recipe

While training for mountain climbing, sometime I’ve wanted something to snack on.  Since none of the Mexican stores around Jackson sell their good salsa, the only option is the mass-production stuff at Albertsons and Smiths.  It’s okay but not nearly as good as from Northgate or Otay Farms in San Diego.  To get around this problem, I found and modified a recipe to make it taste like home.  Prices are in Jackson, WY costs…

Taken and modified from:

  • 2 ripe avocados (not too ripe though) ($2.50)
  • Juice of 4 lemons (keeps avocado green but makes it lemony) ($2.36)
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped (89¢)
  • 2-3 large serrano peppers (4 would be better) (19¢)
  • 3 tomatillos (74¢)
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed (59¢)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt to taste

Chop avocados, put in blender, blend until creamy.  This makes ~3 cups of salsa.

Cost: $7.27 (minus olive oil, cumin, salt)
