Super Bowl Blog #2.

Full of natural fatty goodness
Cathy is now unconfirmed for Sunday. More guacamole for the rest of us. Home Depot came and brought me a new toilet tank today and took away the old one. I am too sick to inspect it to make sure it is okay. It will have to be.

Domestic Goddess, who has provided me with many a recipe upon request, has expressed interest in my guacamole recipe (and she asked nicely). Unfortunately, I cannot take credit for this recipe, it belongs to one of my xbi coworkers who used to run her own Mexican restaurant in the Beaches (so it's legit).

Tomatillo sauce for Guacamole
1 large can Tomatillos (green tomatoes) - drained (available at No Frills and Loblaws)
2 Spanish Onions - chopped
2 Cerrano peppers - chopped
5 Garlic cloves - chopped
1/2 bunch of Coriander - chopped
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Olive oil - 2 tablespoons
1//2 cup water

Add olive oil to frying pan, chopped onion and sauté until softened. Then, add garlic, cerrano peppers and drained tomatillos, salt and coriander. Sauté until softened - approx. 10 minutes. Add water and put all cooked ingredients into blender. Pulse blend for 5-10 seconds.


Add one large tablespoon of cooked tomatillos sauce to one avocado. Mix well and add salt to taste.


  1. Jennifer - glad you approve!

    Soli - I have a feeling they aren't reading my blog...they probably just saw through the BS like we did...that's one thing about the United States - they aren't very open minded about inter-racial anything, be it love, flirtation, dating, marriage...there are a lot of biggots down there who don't have the good sense to keep their pie holes shut.

  2. Rick Bayless (who is a gourmet Mexican chef who owns 2 restaurants here in Chicago) has the best guacamole recipe I've tasted yet. Let me know if you'd like the recipe!
