Much credit goes out to my lovely wife for this creation. To make a long story short, she was craving guacamole and she also wanted some bruschetta. Hey, easy enough; let’s just stick the two together!
Started out with the usual suspects. No onion in our guacamole, please.
For the bruschetta portion I diced up some Roma tomatoes and tossed them with olive oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Normally I add chopped basil but going with the theme I substituted chopped cilantro.
For the guacamole part I used three small ripe avocados, the juice of two limes, diced cilantro, salt, garlic powder and a dash of cayenne.
For the base I sliced up some French bread, coated both sides in olive oil and grilled the bread on high heat. You need to pay attention to the bread; it grills up pretty fast.
Slather some guacamole onto the grilled French bread and top with the bruschetta mix.
Seriously great stuff!
If you don’t feel like firing up a grill for this you can always toast the bread with the broiler in your oven.
I hope this post gives you some ideas on how to have a little fun in you kitchen!
Now get out there and have a great day!
