Veracruzan Guacamole
– with radishes –

There was no way that this would not happen... the gastronomy of Veracruz also had to provide their guacamole recipe and it is made in a very original way, by including radishes in the preparation.

The curious thing about this preparation is that the radishes are not a vegetable that characterizes the state of Veracruz, the Jarochans simply came up with this way of making the guacamole and they got a great recipe because
the guacamole acquires a crunchy consistency and a delicious strong and spicy flavor .

Although the best part of the Veracruzan guacamole is the combination of its opposite flavors that are generated by combining the avocado with the radish. It is a very good combination that can be used to put to tacos , to a melted cheese or to some breaded shrimps.

    Cut Ingredients

    1. Dice 1/4 of an onion and 4 radishes; then reserve.
    2. Remove the veins and the seeds of 1/2 jalapeno pepper.
    3. Finely chop the jalapeno pepper with the one you worked and 1 coriander sprig; then reserve.

    Mix the Ingredients

    1. Scoop out the pulp of 2 avocados and put it in a bowl; reserve 1 avocado pit.
    2. Mash with a fork the avocados’ pulp that was put in the bowl, until having the consistency of a puree.
    3. Add in the bowl:
    • The Onion dices that were cut.
    • The dices of the Radishes that were cut.
    • The Chili that was minced.
    • The Coriander that was minced.
    • The juice of 1 Lime.
    • 1/2 tablespoon of Salt.

    The lime juice is very important because it is used for the avocado not to oxidize.

    The avocado pit serves to preserve the guacamole for a longer time.
