To be brutally honest, Abby got more of this guacamole in her eyebrows and ears than she did in her mouth, but we’re making progress! She alternates between shoving it in her mouth with her fingers and stabbing at it with a spoon… so I’ll wager she’s completely normal at this stage.
We have an avocado tree that gives us avocados with not a lot of flavour going on. And when you’ve got a ton of sad avocados, you make guacamole, no? The fun part is doctoring it up to your liking, and for us it’s never really the same twice in a row.
I stop just short of dousing it in hot sauce and chili and give it to the baby. Then what’s left gets eyeball-searingly hot and shoved on corn chips or various Mexican-style dishes. Just the way I like it!
3 chopped cherry tomatoes
tiny bit of chopped red onion
tiny bit of garlic
squirt of lime juice
1 teaspoon sour cream (or leave it out to keep it vegan)
1 teaspoon sweet chilli sauce if your babe is adventurous
1. Mash avocado with garlic, salt and cumin.
2. Add sour cream and sweet chilli sauce, if using, and mix.
3. Add lime juice, cherry tomatoes and red onion.
Serve in a bowl with a spoon, or on crackers. Or in a bowl with crackers for dipping. Or spread on tortillas… I don’t know, do whatever you want!
