1. North America: El Salvador
Traditional Salvadoran Guacamole Recipe
3 large ripe avocados
½ cup chopped onion
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 hard-boiled egg (thin sliced or crumbled)
1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
¼ teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
In El Salvador, guacamole is not mashed, but gently cubed. The hard boiled eggs and the Romano cheese give it a distinctive texture and unique Salvadoran flavor. Peel, pit, and chop the avocados into small cubes. Add the onion, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and mix gently so as to keep the guacamole chunky rather than a smooth purée.
Garnish the guacamole with the sliced or crumbled hard-boiled eggs and cheese. If desired, sprinkle the oregano on top.
