Todayâ€™s recipe was sent in from Ally Garner, hostess of Copacetic in Carolina and Southern Fried Football. Allyâ€™s a UGA Bulldog by education and a â€˜Bama fan by marriage, so if there is anything Ally knows, itâ€™s tailgating. When she told me how much success sheâ€™d had this season with a pineapple and cucumber guacamole she had found via the Fearless Homemaker, I knew it I had to try it despite the unconventional ingredients.
Pineapple and Cucumber Guacamole (Guacamole con PiÃ±a y Pepino) comes to us from chef Roberto Santibanezâ€™s Truly Mexican: Essential Recipe and Techniques for Authentic Mexican Cooking, a book worth checking out for the mole recipes alone and a sharp looking apple tequila guacamole.
Pineapple and cucumber add a nice crunch to the creamy avocado, onion and cilantro make a nice ying and yang of floral and tang, while the heat of a little extra jalapeno matches brings it all together nicely. To say it was a hit on Championship Sunday would be an understatement, people just couldnâ€™t get enough of this wonderfully tart, sweet and hot guacamole.
