Here's what you will need to make it:
- 1/2 tomato diced
- 1/4 cup diced white onion
- an avocado
- tortilla chips
- fresh jalepe�o finely diced
- mixing bowl
Here's what you have to do:
1. Check with a grown-up and wash your hands before starting this.
2. Guacamole is made out of mashed avocados - a fruit that grows on trees in tropical climates. Maya's abuela (abuela means grandmother in Spanish) learned this from her abuela, Maya's great-great-grandma.
3. To start, carefully slice an avocado in half, twist each half in opposite directions. You can tell if the avocado is ripe when it's a little soft. If you're not allowed to use a knife, make sure you have a grown-up cut the avocado.
4. Remove the big pit in the middle of the avocado and scoop out the green stuff into a bowl.
5. Mash the avocado with a fork until it's smooth.
6. Add the diced tomato, chopped onion, and a little bit of salt.
7. Maya's abuela says that if you want some "zing" in your guacamole, you can also add some salsa or chopped jalepe�o pepper.
8. Now eat your guacamole with some chips!
9. It's muy rico! That means very delicious in Spanish.
10. By the way, don't throw out your avocado pit! You can grow a tree from it!
11. Wash the pit and stick four toothpicks around its middle. The toothpicks should look like an X if you look at them from the top.
12. Balance the pit over a glass of water, with the large part of the pit under the water level.
13. Stick it on a sunny windowsill.
14. Once the pit grows roots and two sets of leaves, plant it in soil. You'll have a nice avocado plant!
