Table Side Guacamole

Monday, August 26, 2013

Our server had a cool little trick for squeezing the lime without touching it!

What you need:
Chopped Onion
Chopped Tomato 
Chopped Serrano Chili
Fresh Ground Pepper
Olive Oil

While we were in Mexico, we stopped to have lunch in downtown Playa Del Carmen. Since we were in Mexico, of course we had to try the table side guacamole... I mean how could you not!? It was so fun to have them prepare it right at your table. It also gave us more say in what we actually wanted or didn't want in the guac which was nice. 

Our server started with the avocado in the dish. He then squeezed the lime in using a fork and a spoon so that he didn't touch the lime, a fun little trick! Next he added the onion, tomato (we asked for no tomato since neither of us are big fans), and Serrano chilies. He followed that up with some salt and fresh ground pepper. Then he added a bit of olive oil before mashing it all together with a fork. And TA-DA... fresh, customized table side guacamole! It was delicious!

Hope everyone is having a great Monday! Anyone going to try some table side guacamole tomorrow for Taco Tuesday!?
